DeHedge intends to develop and implement hedging tools for the cryptocurrencies market and the initial placement of project tokens. According to the DeHedge team, hedging is an effective strategy to
protect against fluctuations in token rates and cryptocurrencies. Reducing the risk of investors, to a certain extent, also reduces their potential profit by the amount of the Hedge premium.
