Crypto options have always been a powerful tool for traders, but they’re built on an old concept which hasn’t really been updated in the DeFi age.
Bumper takes hedging risk to the next level. We introduce a fresh perspective on options, blending traditional concepts with innovative mechanisms unique to the DeFi space.Introducing Bumper: an autonomous, permissionless and decentralised platform that allows users to trade risk easily. It’s a system designed for the future of crypto, giving participants access to simple strategies never before seen.You just choose a floor price (like a strike) and a term (a future expiry date) and then commit your ETH tokens to the protocol. If it expires above the floor, recover your ETH, otherwise you exit with stablecoins at the value of the strike price.
What makes it different? It protects your actual crypto tokens, it’s cheaper on average by up to 30%, and it’s unbelievably simple to use and protects your actual tokens!
It’s not an option, but then technically, neither are any of the other crypto options platforms.
Bumper is, however, a superior, simpler and cheaper way to hedge risk.
We’re reshaping the very fabric of the whole hedging market for crypto users. Dive into our platform and become familiar with Bumper. Because risk management is #NotAnOption

Security of Funds
Economic security is paramount in the decentralised finance space, and Bumper is no exception.
Bumper is designed to thrive in all market conditions, including bear markets and 'Black Swan' events. Our extensive multi-year simulations span many months and use historical price data supplied by trusted third parties. These simulations show that Bumper maintains total solvency, and excels in challenging market scenarios, without ever facing any threat of insolvency. Furthermore, we continue to run simulations to understand the market in real time.

No. Bumper is a DeFi protocol. There is no sign-up required. Just connect your Web3 wallet and you can use Bumper.
Bumper’s premiums are charged dynamically based on the volatility in the market whilst your term is open. Whilst this may seem strange, it means that premiums aren’t based on historical price action which isn’t an accurate reflection of whether a contract represents good value.
Bumper’s dynamic system for pricing is, on average, much cheaper than buying a like-for-like put on an options desk, such as Deribit.
Premiums are deducted from the deposited crypto tokens which are being protected by users.
There are no premiums charged for those depositing stablecoins.
Protocol fees may be charged, and are shown prior to committing your tokens.
Currently, Bumper allows users to protect ETH only, and liquidity providers can earn a yield by depositing USDC.
There is no limit to the range of tokens which Bumper can be expanded to support in the future.
