What is Panoptic?
Panoptic is a perpetual, oracle-free, instant-settlement options trading protocol on the Ethereum blockchain. Panoptic enables the permissionless trading of options on top of any asset pool in the Uniswap v3 ecosystem and seeks to develop a trustless, permissionless, and composable options product, i.e., do for decentralized options markets what x · y = k automated market maker protocols did for spot trading.
The Panoptic protocol consists of smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain that handle the minting, trading, and market-making of perpetual put and call options. All smart contracts are available 24/7 and users can interact with the Panoptic protocol without the need for intermediaries like banks, brokerage firms, clearinghouses, market makers, or centralized exchanges.
Panoptic is the first permissionless options protocol that overcomes the technically challenging task of implementing an options protocol on the Ethereum blockchain. We achieve this by embracing the decentralized nature of Automated Market Makers and permissionless liquidity providing in Uniswap v3.
