The Linear Finance (LINA) token price hit a 90-day high of $0.0343 on 21 April, triggered by a new listing on the ByBit exchange. However, it dropped to $0.0184 at the time of writing (2 May), a decline of more than 46%. The token has been trading roughly 94% down from the all-time high of $0.3126, reached on 18 March 2021.

The recent decline came in line with the broader cryptocurrency market sentiment, as many major cryptocurrencies shed value in April. Bitcoin (BTC) achieved a 90-day high of $48,086 on 28 March, but failed to sustain and plummeted by 19% to $38,622, at the time of writing (2 May). Ethereum (ETH), the world’s second-biggest cryptocurrency by market capitalisation, declined by more than 22% from its 90-day high of $3,573 on 3 April to $2,773.

Is the market facing a correction, or are these early indicators of an upcoming crypto winter? What's the future for Linear Finance’s LINA? Let’s consider the project’s fundamentals and latest developments to get a clearer view of a plausible Linear Finance price prediction.

What is Linear Finance?

Linear Finance is a non-custodial, cross-chain interoperable, decentralised finance (DeFi) protocol based on delta-one assets – derivatives that are close to having one-to-one relationships with an underlying asset in terms of price movements.

According to its whitepaper, Linear Finance users can utilise cross-chain swap capability to instantaneously exchange assets across popular blockchain ecosystems and DeFi protocols with infinite liquidity and zero slippage.

Linear is backed by its native LINA token. LINA is utilised for staking and investing. It streamlines the redemption process with cheaper transaction costs. LINA is also a governance token, allowing holders to vote on distribution models, asset listings and oracle selection, among other things.

The Linear protocol’s backbone is a collateralised debt pool secured by the protocol’s native token LINA and other digital and physical assets.

Users that provide collateral to the loan pool can create Linear USD or lUSD, which can then be used to acquire synthetic assets, also known as Liquids, on the Linear Finance exchange. Collateralised assets are then pooled to provide quick liquidity and act as a counterparty.

The protocol is composed of several products, such as Linear Buildr, a decentralised application (dApp) that enables the management of Liquids using LINA tokens and other tokens as collateral. The exchange was built to facilitate the trade of a diverse range of Liquids, while maintaining fast confirmation speeds and solid security.

The LINA coin uses an inflationary architecture to increase staking incentives and promote liquidity mining programmes that improve exchange utilisation and pool stability.

Linear Finance news and price drivers

Linear Finance has announced several important milestones and developments lately, which may drive the Linear Finance token price. 

Launch of Linear DAO and first two listings: ℓSOL and ℓMATIC 

Linear Finance released Linear decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) in February 2022. LINA holders received the opportunity to vote on and propose protocol enhancements and new listings. Any protocol member could use their staked LINA tokens to submit Linear Improvement Proposals (lIPs) and Linear Listing Proposals (lLPs).

lSOL and lMATIC became the first two Linear DAO listings on Linear Exchange in March 2022. lSOL/lUSD and lMATIC/lUSD pairs were added for trading, increasing total market liquidity.

Launch of Chaotic

Linear Finance announced the launch of Chaotic in December 2021. Chaotic is a Moonriver-based community-driven delta-one asset protocol. Chaotic enables users to trade long and short positions on their preferred tokens with leverage of up to four times. 

CHAOS, Chaotic's utility coin, had been distributed through airdrop to proponents of the Linear protocol.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
