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.
