DeFI the Downside

Bumper’s unique protocol protects the value of your crypto assets if the market drops, and you still capture gains if it goes back up.

Get Protection

Simple to use

Incremental premiums

Downside protection

Pooled liquidity

Provably fair

More flexible than alternatives

More cost efficient than Options

Bumper protects you from downside volatility in just a few clicks.


Connect your wallet, Choose a protection floor and a term length, then deposit your crypto into Bumper. You will receive a composable Bumpered Asset token which represents your protected asset with the downside volatility removed.

If the market is below the floor when your exit your position, you receive stablecoins to the value of your chosen floor. But if it rises you don’t lose out, you just claim your protected asset back.

It doesn’t matter how many times the price moves above or below the floor, all that matters is where it is when you exit your position. You need to hold BUMP tokens which are bonded into the protocol whilst your position is open, and returned after it’s closed. Learn more about BUMP tokens.

Bumper Premiums

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.

Compare Alternatives

Bumper is a superior alternative to stop losses and more price efficient than Options Desks.


Bumper is not a stop loss

A stop loss converts your crypto asset to stablecoins or fiat when its triggered. But if the price rebounds, you end up missing out on upside gains.

Bumper preserves upside gains whilst protecting your wallets value from drops, and it does it without having to transfer your tokens to an exchange.

Bumper is not a Put Option

Bumper’s price protection is a novel alternative to complex and opaque Put Options, and have with significant benefits for both sides of the market.

Price-efficient incremental premiums replace up-front fixed costs, and the ability to utilise Bumpered assets in external DeFi protocols makes the protocol attractive to a wide range of user profiles.
