Use Cases

Parifi's protocol provides a robust foundation for a variety of innovative applications in the decentralized finance landscape. Here are some general use cases and applications that can be built on top of it:


The primary use of perpetual protocols is for trading perpetual swaps, allowing traders to speculate on the price movements of various assets, including cryptocurrencies and traditional financial instruments.


Perpetual swaps are valuable for hedging against price fluctuations in the underlying asset, which is essential for stakeholders like cryptocurrency miners who want to mitigate risks associated with price drops in their mined assets.

Liquidity Provision

By depositing assets into the liquidity pool, traders can provide liquidity and in return, earn trading fees and a share of the platform’s revenue.

Yield Optimization

Parifi provides opportunities for yield optimization where users can leverage automated services that manage their assets to earn additional rewards. This system employs strategies that dynamically allocate resources within the platform to maximize returns, aligning with the latest advancements in DeFi.

On-chain Trading Strategy Development

Developers and traders can create and implement directional trading strategies on-chain. This can include algorithmic or manual strategies tailored to DeFi/AMMs.

Automated Liquidity Provision Vaults

Building automated systems for liquidity provision can help bring liquidity to perpetual protocols. This includes strategies that incorporate liquidity provision as a core component.

Trading Volume Increase

Strategies can be developed to increase the trading volume on perpetual protocols, including the use of the protocol as a hedging venue for other strategies.

Tooling Development

Tools can be created for backtesting, simulation, and strategy optimization, as well as development infrastructure for building trading bots and market-making tools that help maintain liquidity.

Structured Products

Perpetual protocols can be used as the base layer for various financial products, such as basis trade vaults, funding rate arbitrage vaults, copy trading vaults, and active liquidity provider vaults.

These examples illustrate the flexibility of the protocol in creating a wide array of financial tools and services that can enhance trading, risk management, and investment strategies in the DeFi space. Each application leverages the protocol’s ability to facilitate continuous, trust-minimized, and permissionless financial transactions, representing a significant shift from traditional finance mechanisms.
