Roadmap Status Update

The CVI team remains focused on delivering the milestones outlined in the roadmap, which serves as the foundation of our mission to be the go-to platform in the DeFi crypto volatility market. Here is an update on the current progress:

Technical Enhancements and Infrastructure Expansion:

In the recent decade, volatility trading products based on the market fear index of traditional finance have exploded in popularity. Thanks to the launch of ETPs such as UVXY & VXX(leveraged fear index products) which caused to an exponential growth in open interest for the Market fear index futures and now have average daily volumes in billions of dollars, due to the fact that they have attracted traders of all cadres — from institutional investors, and day traders, to retail and funds seeking hedging on their portfolio.

Over the past few weeks, our team has diligently worked on optimizing the CVI infrastructure to accommodate the introduction of Ultra CVI ($UCVI) — a leveraged volatility token. This involved enhancing support for multiple volatility tokens and vaults across CVI’s blockchain infrastructure, software development kit (SDK) and frontend. These technical advancements pave the way for an enhanced user experience and increased functionality, all of which will attract all types of traders similar to the traditional fear index ETP’s.

UCVI Testnet Launch with Concentrated Liquidity DEX:

We are thrilled to announce that UCVI will soon be launched on a testnet in the next quarter. Building on the successful implementation of concentrated liquidity for the Theta Vault, we are gearing up for the UCVI testnet release.

Our team is also working on developing an in-house Hedging Vault, which will provide traders and liquidity providers with enhanced risk management capabilities. While details are currently kept under wraps, rest assured that this development is poised to drive significant growth and deliver substantial benefits to our users and the protocol as a whole. Similar to the Theta Vault, the Hedging Vault promises to be a game-changer in the industry.

Referral Program on the Horizon:

We are delighted to announce that a referral program is in the works and will soon be implemented. This highly anticipated feature has been a priority for us, and with our strengthened professional team, we are working diligently to expedite its completion. The referral program will play a vital role in realizing the CVI vision, complementing the introduction of Ultra CVI and the Hedging Vault.
