Smart infrastructure for a better financial system.

Vega Protocol is creating the building blocks for a new financial system. One that puts control of the markets, the products, and the fees in the community's hands.

Build and trade complex products via an open protocol

Anyone can create and launch markets for financial products, using a framework based on simplified code. Discover the Smart Product language, unique to Vega Protocol.

Fast, high volume trading

Vega Protocol is being built to offer professional-grade execution speeds in a decentralised environment. We're continuously improving our transactions per second and latency.


Dynamically calculated liquidity

Financial incentives are built in, so markets can attract liquidity when they need it. This manages supply and demand in a fully decentralised way. Read about this approach in our whitepaper.


Leveraged trading, with protections

Margin requirements will always be monitored, so even in volatile markets, you can trade with high leverage. The position resolution algorithm resolves contracts that can't be fulfilled.


Created by a team of traders and programmers

Our team is a mix of blockchain security, finance, and programming professionals with a goal to provide market access for everyone, from the high volume trader to the unbanked farmer.

We are transforming how financial markets work, so no one gets to stack the odds against anyone else. On Vega Protocol, markets are open and fair, fees are shared by market makers–not owners–and governance decisions are made by the community.

What we’re doing isn’t easy. Building a fast, decentralised system is hard. Ensuring it’s fair without a central owner is complex. But we’re not intimidated by challenges. We’re motivated by them.

We can’t do this without an active community. Tell us what you think. Keep an eye out for our protocol whitepaper, and follow our progress on Twitter.
