Synthetix is, as the name suggests, a platform built on the Ethereum network for issuing synthetic versions of real world assets – what they call ‘synths’. This includes everything from other cryptocurrencies, to fiat currencies, commodities and real world stocks such as Netflix, Apple and Tesla.
One of the few major cryptocurrency platforms founded and based in Australia, Synthetix has developed a pooled collateral system that allows every possible synth pair to trade with the same, theoretically limitless liquidity.
Users lock up their SNX tokens and receive their chosen synth tokens in return – for example, sETH, sBTC, sOIL, sGBP. SNX is also used to pay for each trade, with the proceeds being distributed to those staking their coins as collateral. These users also receive general staking rewards.
