What is Dual?

Dual is a short-term investment tool that allows taking advantage of low-volatility price fluctuations. Dual is similar to staking in Uniswap V3.

This way, no matter what the result, you will get your coins back.

What is the math of Dual?

Let’s say you chose the 1-day BTC/USDT staking plan with a 365% APR. In the next 24 hours, you get your BTC or USDT back depending on the market price. If the Bitcoin price is less than it was when you opened your position, you get your payout in BTC plus a 365% APR on your payment. If the Bitcoin price is the same or higher than when you opened your position, you get back your USDT plus the 365% calculated for one day. Regardless of market volatility, you earn a payout in Tether or Bitcoin.
