Contract specification

  1. Name: $QUA0919.
  2. Settlement date: June 28th, 2019.
  3. Settlement currency: Bitcoin (BTC).
  4. Settlement process: stable settlement based on 3-day volume-weighted average price (VWAP) calculated from trades on the same market (see notes for explanation).
  5. Mark price: 3-minute time-weighted average price (TWAP) calculated from trades on the same market (using 3-minute TWAP to prevent liquidations on price spikes).

Since Quasa token is not listed on any spot market as of 2019–03–01, we’ve decided to calculate the settlement price & mark price from trades on futures market. This decision will also prevent market manipulation: thin orderbooks on spot exchanges make it easy to increase the price, which allows the manipulator to trigger liquidations on futures exchanges by spending a negligible sum of money.

However, if mark price is calculated from trades on the futures exchange, the manipulator will have to buy out all shorts, which is orders of magnitude harder. The competing forces of longs VS shorts will result in regular market price action, which is desirable for all participants.
