What to consider when buying Hedget

Cryptocurrencies are highly volatile and speculative assets. Buying any cryptocurrency comes with a high level of risk, so make sure you’re aware of the following factors before buying HGET:
  • Investment. CoinDesk reported in August 2020 Hedget raised $500,000 in seed funding. The funding was led by FBG Capital and NGC Ventures.
  • Competition. The DeFi sector is a growing and highly competitive space, so it’s worth considering which other players are targeting decentralized options trading. Some of the competitors you may want to keep an eye on include Hegic and FinNexus, among many others.
  • Token supply. The maximum supply of HGET tokens is fixed at 10,000,000. 10% of those tokens are allocated to the Hedget team, 50% are set aside for liquidity mining, and 20% are locked in reserve with their future usage to be determined by the platform’s DAO. Check the Hedget whitepaper and website for more details of token distribution.
  • Still in development. It’s still early days for the Hedget platform – as of April 2021, there was the option to try out an alpha version of the platform on the Hedget website. Whether the Hedget team can continue to achieve the goals on their development roadmap, and whether the platform has any widespread appeal, remains to be seen.
