A superior alternative for crypto options traders

Try Bumper, experience a new way to hedge risk and get BUMP token rewards

Traditional hedging tools, such as options, are complex, expensive and ill-suited for blockchain implementation.

Bumper leverages the power of DeFi to be simpler, more cost-efficient and accessible alternative to options, and we want you to try it out and see how it compares.

If you've used crypto Options in the past and you take out a position (Protect or Earn) on Bumper before 5 October at 12pm UTC, we’ll reward you with extra BUMP tokens.

Rewards are in addition to the early user incentives and may well mean effectively a ‘fee-free’ protection. All you need to do is register your wallet address and meet the qualifying criteria.

How Bumper Works

Bumper is a two sided peer-to-pool risk market which offers effective defense to protection takers who want to guard their assets from price drops.

Protect with confidence

With Bumper, you simply choose a price floor (similar to a strike price) for your crypto assets and a protection term (like an expiry date). If the market crashes, your asset's value will never fall below this floor. However, if the market surges, your asset's value rises with it.


Green Check

Cheaper protection:

Bumper’s unique crypto price protection is on average around 10pp cheaper than buying a put on a crypto options platform.

Green Check

No upfront capital

Whereas most crypto options platforms require users to navigate complex contracts and often demand significant capital upfront. Bumper, on the other hand, offers a streamlined solution that eliminates these barriers.

Green Check

Simple and efficient

No more Greeks, delta hedging or complicated premium calculations to work through, just a simple interface that eliminates all the guesswork and which minimises risk and maximises profit.

Comparison of annualised premiums on Bumper versus Black Scholes market premium. Consider also that options platforms charge a fee above Black Scholes.

Earn Real Yield

Bumper provides a sustainable way for liquidity providers to earn yield by depositing stablecoins and assuming some of the risk from buyers of protection.

With highly attractive real yields, and additional token incentives, Bumper on average generates enhanced returns compared to options desks.Bumper delivers enhanced yields even during bear markets. Using real historic data during the 2022 bear market, and found that that Bumper would have delivered a significantly higher yield for put sellers compared to options desks.

Bumper’s ‘Earning’ feature finds itself in the consideration set alongside low risk yield farming activities such as Stablecoin Staking, Liquidity Mining, but delivers the possibility of a higher Real Yield return.
