EverMarkets is the first decentralized platform aimed at reinventing the world’s existing derivatives markets. They aim to revolutionize the entire trading experience by making it cheaper, easier, and fairer.
Theu intend to dramatically lower the cost of trading through the deployment of nascent blockchain technologies. r platform will reinvent the traditional roles of the broker, the clearing house, and the exchange into a more streamlined process.
What’s the EVR token for?
For collateral. So to trade a contract, you will need EVR rather than USD or BTC/ETH to place your order.
Holders of EVR can stake the token and receive a percentage of transaction fees. So there will be some sort of staking feature.
Holders can lend their EVR out to borrowers and receive interest. This is all done via smart contracts.
It’s not real time, it’s a periodic pro-rata call auction.
ICO release of 43,600,000 USD (50,000 ETH)
(1 EMX = 0.15 USD)
The final allocation:
- 20% Public allocation
- 9% Team allocation
- 60% Market Making
Can’t participate: USA
Good business idea.
- Strong team based on information provided on website.
- Thanks to the system, frequent auctions. Matching engines will no longer be affected by the instability resulting from periods of surging market data.
- Regulators and market observers can better survey markets.
- Data dissemination will be fairer.
At first glance, this project no has few drawbacks. But if in the future the team will not be able to attract many players, then there will be no liquidity on this exchange. By that their platform and tokens will not make sense.

Currently people are investing in blockchain infrastructure projects with solid teams. Evermarkets seem to have a solid team, and probably what seems to be a MVP that hasn’t been shown yet. There have been MANY other financial platforms launched and so there is much competition in the space. The Roadmap seems sensible and the depth of the team and potential contacts with the dark pools are a necessity for this platform to succeed. I don’t expect price to rise until later this year. The merging of institutional trading on blockchain and allowing lower fees may attract more and more traders. It’ll be interesting to see the space.
