Tesla and Amazon are two highly popular and commonly known stock market shares, which are traded at extremely high volume on a regular basis. Now, for the crypto users out there, the stock markets are neither a familiar place nor exactly easy to interact with. But of course, crypto has come a long way and with the possibilities provided by smart contract platforms, there’s a possible way to trade both Tesla And Amazon on the blockchain through synths.
What Are Synths?
Synths or synthetic assets are derivatives, which track the price of an underlying asset. It can be anything with a monetary value e.g stocks, bonds, forex, cryptos etc. This price tracking is usually done through the help of an oracle, which supplies the price data to the platform constantly. They allow trading and usage of such assets in Decentralized Finance (DeFi) without presenting the users the need to hold the actual assets, which would be inconvenient and undesirable.
