The year 2021 has shaped out to be phenomenal for Octopus Protocol. From growing our community of Octopodes to building partnerships that will help strengthen our efforts and boost the growth of Octopus Protocol — we have achieved tremendous progress in the development of Octopus Protocol.

Earlier this year, we successfully completed our seed and Private A fundraising rounds. We are on track to complete the Private B fundraising round for the Octopus token. We have received incredible support from tier-1 blockchain firms, industry leaders, small and large VC firms, and more. We are grateful for the support we have received from influential leaders of the industry who believe in our capabilities to build a protocol that has the potential to enable an open-financial infrastructure. To discover more about why we are building Octopus Protocol, please refer to our Litepaper.

With a highly dedicated team of experts and support from advisors like Kyle Chasse, we have kickstarted our mission that offers unparalleled access and exposure to real-world assets. Moreover, we have a huge community of Octopodes that believe in our vision to facilitate access to decentralized derivatives.

Following the successful private sale raises and to further assist in the development and deployment of Octopus Protocol, we want to announce that we will be conducting our Initial DEX Offering (IDO) of our native utility token OPS, on the popular platform PAID Ignition.

The OPS Token

The OPS token is the core economic unit of the Octopus Protocol ecosystem. It is the native utility token of the Octopus Protocol.

Its value accrues from platform fees paid for engaging and accessing the products and services of the Octopus Protocol ecosystem — from the creation of synthetic assets to exchanging derivatives on trading platforms.

The $OPS token acts as fuel to incentivize honest actions in the functioning of the protocol. They will provide access to a multitude of products and services inside the ecosystem. $OPS tokens will also be used as a part of staking mechanisms for holders to receive rewards in exchange for committing deposits and providing liquidity to the protocol. $OPS token holders will govern the Octopus Protocol.
