Core Benefits of Sharpe Perp

Transparency: All orders are visible to everyone, which makes it difficult for market manipulation to occur.

Security: Orders are settled and stored on the blockchain, which makes them very secure because of the immutability of data.

Efficiency: Orders can be executed very quickly and efficiently, thanks to the use of a high-performance matching engine.

Self-custody: Users have full custody of their funds, which eliminates the trust assumption in the protocol and guarantees solvency.

MEV Protection

Sharpe Perp also includes a number of features to protect users from MEV (miner extractable value). MEV is a type of arbitrage that can be used to profit from the delay between when a transaction is submitted to the blockchain and when it is confirmed. Sharpe perp MEV protection features include:

Fast matching: The sequencer matches orders very quickly, which makes it difficult for MEV extractors to front-run trades.

Batching: Transactions are batched together before they are submitted to the blockchain, which further reduces the risk of MEV.

On-chain settlement: All trades are settled on the blockchain, which ensures that traders are not vulnerable to MEV attacks.
