Bumper's core function is to act as a shield against the unpredictable nature of crypto markets. By setting a floor price and a protection term for your assets, you create a safety net that protects against sudden downturns while still allowing you to benefit from upward trends. The premium for this protection is deducted from the tokens you lock into the protocol, without requiring additional capital to cover the costs.
When to Use: In a highly volatile market or when you want to secure a portion of your assets.
How to Use: Set a floor price for your crypto assets, ensuring that their value never falls below that level. It's like having insurance against sudden market crashes.
Bumper isn't just about protection; it's also a platform for earning yields. By depositing stablecoins, you essentially buy risk from protection seekers, earning premiums in return. It's a proactive way to engage with the Bumper ecosystem and turn risk management into a profit-making opportunity.
When to Use: When you're looking to earn yields from premiums.
How to Use: Open an earning position in Bumper. Select the amount of stablecoins you wish to deposit, and the relevant market you wish to provide liquidity for, then choose a term length and your risk tier to start earning yield.
Bumper doesn’t just allow you to play one side of the market or the other, but lets you simultaneously open both protection and earning positions, creating a balanced portfolio that safeguards your assets while also earning yields. It's a strategy for those seeking equilibrium in their investment approach.
When to Use: When you want a balanced risk-reward profile and you hold both stablecoins and crypto assets which are accepted by Bumper.
How to Use: Simultaneously take positions. Protect your assets by opening a protection position then open an earning position concurrently.
Diversification is a cornerstone of sound investment, and Bumper enables you to apply this principle to your crypto portfolio. With Bumper you can assign different floor prices to various proportions of your crypto assets as you see fit, and there is no limit to the number of positions you can have open.
This strategy works well for both protection and earning positions, allowing users to effectively assign different risk profiles.
When to Use: This strategy is ideal for users looking to mitigate the risk of relying on a single floor price, or risk tier. It's particularly useful in volatile markets for securing different levels of protection or assuming greater risk for increased yields for various portions of your portfolio,
How to Use: Within the Bumper platform, you can open multiple protection or earning positions as required and set individual floor prices for each. Note that each new position however does incur an individual gas fee, so it’s advisable to be prudent with how many positions you open at a time.

By integrating Bumper's protection with lending, borrowing, or other DeFi tools, you can create unique investment paths that go beyond traditional risk management.

The Profit Lock strategy is all about capitalising on market gains without missing out on potential further upside opportunities. By using Bumper, you can lock in the profits you've made during a market pump, ensuring that you won't lose those gains if the market reverses. At the same time, your assets remain exposed to further upward movement, allowing you to continue benefiting if the market keeps rising.
When to Use: This strategy is ideal when you've experienced significant gains in a bullish market and want to protect those profits without selling the assets. It's perfect for times when the market has just reached new highs, and you want to hedge against potential downturns without missing out on further gains.
How to Use: Set a floor price at a level that locks in your desired profits. This ensures that if the market price drops below this level, your assets' value won't fall further. Meanwhile, if the market continues to rise, your assets will still participate in that growth.
Bumper premiums work differently to virtually all other financial products in both the traditional and crypto markets. They are designed to be provably fair, price-efficient and represent good value compared to other risk markets.
Bumper’s premiums are applied to Hedge positions regardless of whether they close above the floor, or claim stablecoins in the event of finishing below the floor.
The premium is calculated dynamically based on a range of factors, including the measured volatility during the period the position is opened.
Bumper is a more flexible, cost-efficient and simple solution for hedging your crypto assets and earning yields. Discover how to use Bumper.
