Synthetix, the tokenized asset issuance platform, has announced a new partnership with investment and quantitative trading firm, DWF Labs. The partnership has resulted in a $20 million investment for Synthetix, with DWF Labs acquiring $15 million worth of Synthetix's native token, $SNX, using $USDC.
As part of the deal, DWF Labs will work on increasing $SNX token liquidity and market-making across both centralized and decentralized exchanges. Additionally, Synthetix's perpetual futures will be integrated into DWF Labs' trading business, expanding the reach and utility of Synthetix's services. DWF Labs has also committed to purchase another $5 million worth of $SNX once the integration of Synthetix’s services has been completed.
Synthetix allows users to tokenize a wide range of real-world assets into derivatives called Synths, which offer exposure to different assets. Holding $SNX tokens enables users to create Synths by locking tokens into a smart contract and minting Synths against the corresponding value.
DWF Labs managing partner Andrei Grachev highlighted the partnership’s provision of streamlined trading mechanisms in the decentralized finance space:
“By leveraging Synthetix’s deep liquidity and composability, platforms can now deliver better trades with lower slippage, allowing for innovative hedging strategies and unique use cases.”
