What is Linear?

Linear Finance is a decentralized protocol specializing in unlimited liquidity, delta one synthetic assets. Delta one synthetic assets are essentially price trackers; they provide exposure to an underlying asset, like an exchange-traded fund (ETF), without actually owning the asset. On the Linear platform, users can mint synthetic assets that mimic the price of real-world assets like commodities, market funds and bonds. These synthetic assets are known as "Liquids". The purpose of using synthetic assets is to avoid the high gas fees and slow speeds that have plagued many cryptocurrency platforms. Though Linear Finance is Ethereum-based, it is cross-chain compatible, meaning it can integrate with other decentralized finance (DeFi) projects. LINA is an ERC-20 token native to the Linear network. Because Linear Finance is decentralized, its governance is determined by token holders voting on proposals regarding dApp development, synthetic asset listings and more. LINA tokens are also used for minting new synthetic assets (being held as collateral) and can also be staked or contributed to liquidity pools.

Linear (LINA) is the 295th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $109,914,414. The current price of Linear is $0.03951936, which is -2.030% lower than yesterday.

What to consider when buying Linear

When you are deciding whether or not to invest in LINA, it’s worth considering a few things:
  • Partnership development. Linear finance is in the early stages of its development, but has already secured partnerships with a number of blockchain-based enterprises. Such partnerships are significant, as they help enhance Linear’s cross-chain capabilities and the platform’s continued evolution.
  • Front-running. Front-running is essentially insider trading — purchasing and selling an asset when you’re aware of the expected price outcome. This is a problem with cryptocurrency due to the decentralised nature of the blockchain as miners or validators are aware of pending transactions before they’re executed. One of Linear’s key features is their synthetic, fungible assets using a dynamic price tracker which helps avoid any front-running.
  • Competition. As the DeFi ecosystem continues to develop, decentralised exchanges focussing on different niches have become more prevalent. Linear is not the only synthetic asset decentralised exchange (DEX) on the market. A number of others exist, built on varying protocols such as SEXP on Tezos, Crafting finance on Polkadot and Beyond finance on Ethereum. The most popular DEX for trading synthetic assets is probably Synthetix, a major player that Linear finance will have to contend with in its search for a broad market share.
Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Linear, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of LINA is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision. Finder, or the author, may have holdings in the Linear or any other cryptocurrency discussed.
