Return to Scalpex.com

Three new perpetual futures contracts are based on the price of the underlying Uniswap LP (UNI-V2) Tokens ETH/USDT, UNI/ETH, and WBTC/ETH.

Crypto derivatives exchange Scalpex listed three unique DeFi products based on the stable Uniswap Liquidity Pools. All three contracts come with 1x, 3x, or 10x leverage.

DeFi Futures contracts open the way to earn from DeFi liquidity providing without actually locking crypto assets and dealing with smart contracts. DeFi Futures help avoid high transaction costs and delay/latency related to the interaction with ERC20 smart contracts.


DeFi Futures is an exciting instrument for investors and traders who want to earn from Liquidity Providing price movement without getting into Uniswap details, learning the LP market, and paying high entrance fees.

DeFi Futures are nominated in USD so that you can always see actual revenue from your investments. You can use stop-loss and take-profit orders, which is impossible in Uniswap. The contract mark price is calculated for each tick in the price change of the pool’s currencies. You can always compare the Scalpex DeFi Futures mark price with the original LP token price estimation on its smart contract address at Etherescan.

Scalpex DeFi Futures Contract value is shortened for convenience; otherwise, it reflects as closely as possible the value of the underlying Automated Market Making contract at Uniswap.

Scalpex DeFi Futures allow traders to participate in the DeFi market even with small deposits. Finally, actual Uniswap liquidity providers might find DeFi Futures interesting for hedging their current Uniswap positions to protect their profits from unexpected price movements.

Scalpex decided to explore DeFi Futures after a thorough analysis of the DeFi market. Decentralized finance offers uniquely reliable opportunities to earn from crypto. So far, DeFi robustness comes with drawbacks such as high fees, low speed, and a steep learning curve. Scalpex offers a centralized approach to earn from decentralized instruments fixing those drawbacks. Moreover, Scalpex offers trading DeFi Futures with up to 10x leverage.

“This is the cornerstone of DeFi integration into Scalpex. We see a huge potential in developing decentralized finance. We aim to make DeFi an easy, accessible, and usable investing and trading instrument,”- says Michael Shabounin, CEO of the Scalpex crypto derivatives exchange.
