Synthetix Perps has launched four new perpetual futures markets exclusively on Base: Synthetix (SNX), Solana (SOL), dogwifhat (WIF), and Wormhole (W).

New Synthetix Perps Markets on Base: SNX, SOL, WIF, and W

Synthetix is excited to announce the launch of four new perpetual futures markets on Synthetix Perps, exclusively on Base. The newly added markets include Synthetix (SNX), Solana (SOL), Dogwifhat (WIF), and Wormhole (W). These markets were approved in SIP-363 and SIP-368, with configurable values set by SCCP-316.

Trading Synthetix Perps on Base

The new SNX, SOL, WIF, and W perpetual futures markets are only available on Synthetix Perps deployed on Base. Traders can access these markets through platforms integrating with Synthetix Perps on Base, such as Kwenta.

Market Parameters and Liquidity

The specific market parameters for each new perpetual futures market, including initial margin ratios, fees, and maximum market sizes, can be found in SCCP-316. Liquidity providers can earn a share of the protocol fees by providing liquidity to these markets. Increased LP collateral & liquidity will support higher open interest and trading volumes.

Liquidity Providers: Earn Fees and Support Market Growth

Synthetix Perps relies on liquidity providers to support perps liquidity. By providing liquidity to the new Spartan Council Pool, LPs can earn a portion of the trading fees generated by the protocol. Additionally, Synthetix currently offers liquidity incentives in the form of SNX/USDC rewards for LPs on top of the regular perps trading fees.

More liquidity in these markets will enable higher open interest, increased trading volumes, and the potential for additional markets to be launched on Synthetix Perps. 

Risk Warning: Providing liquidity is not risk-free. LPs may experience losses if market skew is imbalanced. Other risks include smart contract vulnerabilities and collateral (USDC) depegging. As always, do your own research and only deposit what you can afford to lose.

For more information on the risks and mechanics of providing liquidity on Synthetix Perps, please consult the Synthetix Docs.
