How to get involved:

Polynomial Power Perp (P³)

Polynomial Protocol is introducing Power Perpetuals on Optimism. Power Perpetuals are derivatives that provide convexity without expiry and strike prices such as ETH², BTC² and others.

With Polynomial Power Perps, the traders can take long and short positions against a delta-neutral AMM.

The AMM uses Synthetix perps V2 under the hood for the perps market to achieve delta neutrality.

Passive users can provide liquidity to the Liquidity Pool to earn exchange fees.

The system also introduces a ‘Kangaroo Vault’, which makes a delta-neutral position by making a short Power Perp position and longing equal amount of delta worth of Perpetuals of the underlying asset.


In conclusion, the audit contest conducted by Polynomial with Code4rena is an essential step in ensuring the security and reliability of the Power Perps platform. It provides an opportunity for developers and security experts to contribute to the development of a secure and reliable DeFi platform. With the launch of Power Perps on the Optimism network, Polynomial is taking the next big step towards offering a better trading experience for traders and investors.
