QUESTIONS MODERATOR

decentralisednomad | Octane Finance :
Hey
I’m Co founder at Octane, been in this DeFi space from it’s inception

Can you give us a simple description of OCTANE?

decentralisednomad | Octane Finance :
Octane Finance is redefining limit orders by making them smart and rewarding. We follow the optimal capital path for idle limit orders.

What makes OCTANE different? What are the highlight of OCTANE?

decentralisednomad | Octane Finance :
To keep it very simple we’re building an ecosystem where one can earn APY on top of idle limit orders sitting idle in the smart contracts doing nothing, entire ecosystem is governed by OCTANE token

We’re decentralised, Rewarding with best order execution which no other limit order platforms are providing

For example 1inch do limit orders via centralised mode of system storing orders off chain

Check out https://docs.octane.finance/octane-vs-other-platforms

What security OCTANE have taken to keep the investors and users funds secure?

decentralisednomad | Octane Finance :
Nice question

There are 3 types of risks
Lending
Order execution risk
Smart contract risk

Mitigations
1. We plan to use lending aggregators to reduce the risk of lending from one platform.

2. Loss of funds is controlled by giving users the power to customize execution slippage value for successful order execution.

3. We will audit our smart contract code before going mainnet also get bug bounty programs

Can you explain about tokenomics and the use cases of the OCTANE token?

decentralisednomad | Octane Finance :
Octane token is a Utility and governance token with following use case

1. APY generated on the limit order assets is given to the user in the form of OCTANE tokens.

2. Users can get up to 50% discount while paying trading fees using the OCTANE token.

3. Trading fees paid by the user are given to the network of executors in from of OCTANE tokens for executing the limit order.

4. Governance

About the Roadmap, what are the main achievements of OCTANE so far and what is planned in the near future?

decentralisednomad | Octane Finance :
Interesting!!

We started project Q1 2021 and met following dots till date

Completed User research, prototyping, seed and private rounds and now we’re in testnet launch phase

Check out https://docs.octane.finance/about/roadmap

QUESTIONS TWITTER

Octane Finance raised $1.7M in seed and private rounds.. so can you tell us exactly what priorities these funds will be used for? What specific aspects of your project do you hope to improve with this contribution?

decentralisednomad | Octane Finance :
Yeah we closed this recently, we will use it for hiring talent, protocol development and marketing related activites

Can you tell us who your most important partnerships are today and what results do you want to achieve with this collaboration?

decentralisednomad | Octane Finance :
We’re currently in talks with Chainlink team to get best oracle infra for Octane and more partnership annoucements yet to come

It brings to mind the DAO system when you mention that the philosophy of the Octane project is very concerned about the community, then you aim to give the platform a voice and get its users to vote within the ecosystem. Will there be an effectively functioning DAO mechanism in the Octane project?

decentralisednomad | Octane Finance :
Yes, as said we will be community driven and OCTANE will also function as governance token for governance decisions

During the project development, is everything going according to your plan? Are there any technical barriers that you think could pose limitations for mass adoption and expansion of your project ?

decentralisednomad | Octane Finance :
Our long-term vision is to become a highly capital efficient & rewarding trading platform built upon open-source protocols.

To acheive this we need stong partnerships with Dex and Cex platforms, So limit orders will be executed through octane and they can directly benefit from extr APY, Right it’s it’s $2T market

“Just relax and enjoy while we take care of your orders” It sounds too good but at the same time it makes me curious to know what is the process that Octane runs, could you explain the process and how you manage orders and user assets?

decentralisednomad | Octane Finance :
Consider this scenario
- Buy 500 CAKE with 10,000 BUSD when CAKE’s price is $20.
User supplies 10,000 BUSD for this order. Suppose CAKE’s price is $25 at the time of order placement.

- Octane smart contract then takes the order value 10,000 BUSD and sends it to Venus vault for, let’s say ~10% APY.

- A decentralized network of highly incentivized executors keeps a watch over the pending order pool and executes the order based on the limit conditions.

- So, executors execute this order at 20$ per CAKE or less by paying the respective gas cost of the transaction. In return, they get OCTANE tokens collected from the user as the transaction fee for this order.

- Suppose CAKE reaches $20 in 3 months. This means it took 3 months for the order to be executed. Hence, the interest generated on order ~10000*(10%/365)*90 = $246. This $246 interest after any protocol fees is given back to the user in the form of OCTANE tokens. So the user gets 500 CAKE + ~$246 worth of OCTANE tokens.

Know this, received CAKE tokens are again sent to Venus to give maximum returns until the user withdraws.
