    How to Find the Best Price for HedgeTrade

    There are many decentralized exchanges on Ethereum where you can buy HedgeTrade. You could simply pick one of them and use it and hope that it's the best price. Or you could use a decentralized exchange (DEX) aggregator to find the best price possible without having to compare each one manually. A DEX aggregator like 1inch.io uses the power of open defi programs to compare prices across all marketplaces and offer you the ability to automatically execute that trade directly through 1inch.io. 1inch saves you time and money by automatically choosing the best price.

Common Questions About Buying & Selling HedgeTrade (HEDG)

What is the best HEDG wallet?

We recommend Metamask as our top-rated wallet primarily because it is so widely supported, but there are other good options like TrustWallet. Trust Wallet is built and supported by Binance, the world's largest crypto exchange. We cannot rank Trust Wallet above Metamask because it only has a mobile version, and the iOS version for iPhones does not have an in-wallet browser, which makes connecting to DeFi apps cumbersome.

How do I add HEDG to Metamask?

To see your newly purchased HEDG in your Metamask wallet, click "Add Token" and copy the HEDG contract address 0xF1290473E210b2108A85237fbCd7b6eb42Cc654F into the Custom Token Contract Address field. You will now see your HEDG balance in Metamask and be able to send, receive, and trade it.

What is HedgeTrade?

HedgeTrade (HEDG) is an Ethereum token that has the goal of revolutionizing social trading using blockchain technology. It aims to become an all-inclusive platform where the world’s best traders come together to share their knowledge. Traders post their predictions into a smart contract-powered blueprint that users can purchase or unlock in order to access. Traders are rewarded with HEDG if their blueprint turns out to be accurate forecast; otherwise the user’s purchase is refunded. HedgeTrade also provides users with a variety of Crypto Traded Indices (CTIs), which are baskets of cryptocurrencies that will track reference indices, which they can then trade.

History of HedgeTrade

HedgeTrade was released on October 17th, 2018, and conducted a quiet ICO where tokens were on sale for $0.02 each. Not much is known about the founders of the project, or the specifics of its ICO, however, the HEDG token has become one of the fastest moving coins in 2019 thus far, surpassing a market cap of $200 million by July 2019.

How HedgeTrade Works

HedgeTrade’s goal of increasing the quality of trading predictions by holding forecasters accountable for their forecasts is accomplished through keeping track of such forecasts on immutable blockchain records, such as Ethereum. The Ethereum blockchain also allows HedgeTrade to develop a unique smart contract staking model which ensures that tokens staked by forecasters and users can be adequately protected and fairly distributed. To get started, a user buys HEDG tokens from an exchange or the platform itself, peruses a database of forecasts, then stakes tokens into a contract representative of the forecast they want access to. If the forecast proves to be correct, HedgeTrade “oracles” release the staked tokens to the forecaster; otherwise, tokens are returned to the users.

Why HedgeTrade?

HedgeTrade is a novel use of the blockchain and smart contracts in that it is the first of its kind to revolve around “social trading.” As a platform based around predictions of crypto prices, it has several benefits to offer the crypto trading public, some of which include:

  • Aligned interests. In the HedgeTrade system, both predictors and followers are working toward the same goals. Traders can only earn rewards if the predictions they submitted are accurate. Users can follow traders whose predictions they trust and make the same trade, profit alongside the prediction-making trader.
  • Staking model. Platform users can browse HedgeTrade’s selection of predictions made by traders who staked tokens, representing their having put skin in the game, which helps to add confidence in and accountability to their forecasts.
  • Profit focused. The HedgeTrade platform is designed to let users hedge their risk while maximizing their profitability through their ability to access valuable market data directly through the platform.
  • Unique trading instruments. In the future, HedgeTrade plans to incorporate derivative instruments, margin accounts and the ability for its users to take short positions, giving them access to crypto opportunities they might not be able to find anywhere else.
