What is Pear Protocol?

An Innovative Approach to On-Chain Pairs Trading

Technical Overview

Pear Protocol is an array of engineering solutions aimed to address the inherent inefficiencies and complexities when pair-trading cryptocurrencies. By enabling leveraged long and short positions within a single on-chain transaction, the protocol significantly improves the process of pair-trading execution, with a superior front-end for risk management.
This is done by integrating a wide array of on-chain trading engines with a dedicated UI and UX, thus simplifying the process of opening simultaneous long and short positions in correlated assets. For example, initiating a long position in $BTC while shorting $ETH (with leverage) at the same time.
By integrating with various trading engines (e.g., GMX, Vertex and SYMM), Pear Protocol becomes liquidity agnostic, ensuring that users always have access to the deepest liquidity possible. The platform's design emphasizes not only scalability but also flexibility - whereby users can manage margin, leverage and other parameters like net funding in a seamless manner.

Reducing Risks, Increasing Usability

The protocol is designed to revolutionise the way pair trading execution is done.
These issues are particularly exacerbated when attempting to establish multiple pair trades, which can result in convoluted portfolio management and intricate profit-and-loss calculations. For example, reconciling a complex portfolio with varied long and short positions on a CEX demands laborious manual handling, a process that is prone to errors.

Furthermore, the protocol aims to mitigate the custody and trust issues associated with centralized exchanges (CEXs). Pear Protocol's decentralized genesis and use of decentralized trading engines ensure that traders retain custody over their assets.

More Than Just Trading

Pear Protocol's technical blueprint offers use cases that span across various market dynamics, from narrative trading, where exposure to changing market sentiments can be customized, to treasuries and digital asset funds seeking optimized risk profiles for market-neutral positions. Professional traders stand to benefit from an integrated monitoring and risk management system for individual pair trades.
Moreover, Pear introduces an innovative tokenized trading system that enhances position utility. By representing trading positions as ERC-721 tokens, these positions become transferable and can be integrated as collateral within DeFi protocols, paving the way for a higher degree of composability in DeFi ecosystems.
