Nash’s next big move will be options, futures and leverage which judging by the success of these products on other platforms in the space is the correct choice. A future in which users can earn through, staking, lending, borrowing, trading and hedging through futures effectively combining Coinbase with FTX and services like BlockFi & Nexo is exciting. I look forward to staking Nex, receiving Bitcoin and earning interest on that Bitcoin through lending on Nash.
Recently I rediscovered Melon Protocol when I first read about Melon I wasn’t particularly inspired by what they were doing as the protocol was still in it’s infancy and Maker, Dai and DeFi were yet to become a thing. However revisiting Melon I realised there’s an opportunity here for Nash. Melon is significantly lowering the barrier to entry for Hedge fund creation by reducing the cost and regulatory burden for creating a Fund. Currently Melon is limited to the Ethereum ecosystem, herein lies the opportunity for Nash as Nash is the first cross-chain platform it’s possible for Nash to build a portal similar to Melon whereby users can create their own Fund and list it in a Fund marketplace on Nash.
Possible future order of disruption;
Coinbase, Binance, FTX & Bitmex, Stripe & PayPal, NYSE & NASDAQ, BlackRock & Citadel
Fund Management, Crypto-trading, Crypto Derivatives trading, Payments, Securities Trading, Hedge Fund + Fund Marketplace.
Nash Fund Management, Nash Exchange, Nash Futures, NashPay, Nash exchange securities trading licence, Nash Melon-like hedge-fund portal and marketplace.
Not sure if building a propriety solution or partnership/protocol integration is the best way to approach this, just more thinking out load and pontificating about the distant future.
