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.

Furthermore, Bumper is secured by it’s requirement for bonding BUMP to use the protocol, which acts as a major deterrence against would-be attackers.

Do I need to sign up or verify my identity?

No. Bumper is a DeFi protocol. There is no sign-up required. Just connect your Web3 wallet and you can use Bumper.

How much does Bumper cost to use?

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.

What assets can I use with Bumper

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.
