Ethereum-based decentralised margin trading and lending platform Ooki Protocol’s native token, OOKI, has been falling since the start of the year. The token hit an all-time low in late-January 2022 but has since rebounded by over 40%, as of 13 April.

Ooki Protocol’s launch on the Binance Smart Chain and its Oki v2 protocol upgrade in March 2022 have played a part in the recovery. With Oki v2, Ooki Protocol introduced new trading pairs, flash loans, dynamic interest rates and decentralised exchange (DEX) selector features. But the platform remains a small player compared to decentralised finance (DeFi) leaders on Ethereum such as Aave, Circle and Compound.

In this article, we discuss the Ooki Protocol, its OOKI token and the latest Oki v2 upgrade. We also dive deep into the token’s price action and read analysts’ commentaries to draft a plausible OOKI price prediction for 2022 and beyond.

What is Ooki protocol?

Ooki Protocol is a blockchain-powered margin trading and lending platform that allows users to build applications that enable lenders, borrowers and traders to interact with the DeFi protocol on Ethereum. Users do not need to submit know-your-customer (KYC) verification to use the platform.

Margin trading is one of Ooki Protocol’s main offerings. Users looking to leverage their trade can enter positions with up to 15% leverage by putting up collateral. Ooki also facilitates shorting, where a trader sells assets they do not own. The trader borrows the asset to sell with the expectation that it will lose value and will later buy it at a lower price to return the borrowed assets. The trader’s profit will be the difference between the short entry price and short cover price.

On Ooki, users can also borrow funds by depositing collateral. Users risk liquidation of their collateral if margin maintenance requirements are not met. As of 13 April, Ooki’s website showed 12 cryptocurrencies available to be borrowed at varying interest rates and liquidity. Stablecoins Dai (DAI), USD Coin (USDC) and Tether (USDT) demanded the highest rate of interest at 19%, while Ether (ETH) and Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) demanded the lowest rate of interest at 6% and 3%, respectively. Other cryptos available for borrowing were Aave (AAVE), Compound (COMP), Chainlink (LINK), Loopring (LRC), Maker (MKR), Uniswap (UNI) and Yearn.finance (YFI) available at rate of interest of 10%. 

Lenders can use Ooki Protocol to lend their cryptocurrencies and earn interest on them. All coins available for borrowing can also be lent, along with OOKI, with stablecoins earning the highest rate of interest. 

In March, Ooki Protocol announced its margin trading, borrowing and lending products expanded to the Binance Smart Chain (BSC). The platform said traders can use Ooki Protocol on BSC’s PancakeSwap decentralised exchange to take advantage of its margin trading features.

As of 13 April 2022, total value locked (TVL) on Ooki Protocol was $61.4m, according to DefiLlama, of which nearly $61m was on Ethereum, about $425K on layer-two Polygon and $19.85K on BSC. Ooki Protocol’s peak TVL was about $1bn on 18 April 2021.

Ooki Protocol analysis: What is OOKI token?

OOKI is the native token of the Ooki Protocol. OOKI is a governance token. Holders can vote on governance processes such as funding proposals, fee proposals, marketing initiatives and development roadmap, among others. OOKI holders can stake their tokens to earn trading, lending and borrowing fees generated by the protocol.

There is another token on the Ooki Protocol called vBZRV, a vesting token that slowly releases the BZRV token that can be claimed for OOKI. BZRV to OOKI conversion rate is 1 BZRX = 10 OOKI. According to the Ooki Protocol, user can only convert BZRX to OOKI on the Ethereum network.

OOKI’s maximum supply is capped at 10.5 billion tokens. At the time of writing on 13 April, the circulating supply of OOKI coins stood at over 3.34 billion, data from CoinMarketCap showed.

  1. Dynamic interest rate – According to the Ooki Protocol, its new dynamic interest rate system allows liquidity pools to grow larger and deliver optimal rates to lenders and borrowers using a dynamically changing interest rate curve. The new mechanism will remove open position rollovers, target an 80% liquidity pool utilisation rate and enable indefinite-term loans.  

  2. DEX selectors – Users will soon be able to select which DEX to execute their trade in to get the best trading price. SushiSwap (SUSHI), Uniswap v2 and v3 (UNI), Pancakeswap (CAKE) and Quickswap (QUICK) will support this feature. The DEX selector will initially be deployd on Ethereum-based networks Arbitrum and Polygon.

  3. Flash Loans – These will enable users to borrow instantly with zero collateral obligations provided that the liquidity is returned to the pool within one transaction block. Ooki will charge fees for cash loans, which will be distributed to OOKI stakers.

In other news, the Ooki Protocol expanded to Ethereum-rival BSC in March 2022 and enabled its margin trading offering on BSC’s PancakeSwap, a decentralised automated market maker (AMM) exchange. Ooki said of the expansion:

“Ooki will remain primarily an Ethereum focused protocol. However, it is expanding its product offering to products and services on Binance Smart Chain. Users on Binance Smart Chain will now have access to Ooki products, while also benefiting from BSC’s low fees and fast transactions.” 

Earlier in February 2022, Ooki Protocol introduced its offerings on Ethereum-based Layer 2 scaling solution Arbitrum, citing high gas fees on Ethereum. As of 13 April, Ooki Protocol is currently operational on Ethereum, Polygon, Arbitrum and the Binance Smart Chain.

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.
