Ownership Tokens (OTs)

Ownership tokens represent your locked position on a given Future. OTs are the proof of ownership of the assets you have deposited. They are not linked to any specific period, but rather to the Future itself - no matter when the deposit was made. When you redeem your funds these OTs get burned in exchange for the underlying you will receive.
​

Use Cases for OTs

  • Buying Fixed Rates Income

    Unreal allows users to purchase discounted Ownership Tokens through AMMs and earn a fixed rate determined by the discounted value of the purchase.

  • Capital Efficiency

    ‌Users who want to earn the variable interest gain of a specific asset (such as USDC or DAI) but want access to their capital to further utilize their assets elsewhere can choose to sell their Ownership tokens at a discount to gain capital efficiency.
  • Arbitrage Fixed Rates and Variable Rates

    For sophisticated traders who observe the discounted trading value of Ownership tokens and the premium trading value of yield tokens, they can take advantage of the gaps between these two traits by minting and trading.
  • Trade between different Yield Types and Rates

    Traders who want to enter and exit various fixed and variable yield rates can easily do so due to the two liquid markets Unreal provides for Ownership and Yield Tokens.

  • Arbitrage without Carry Risk

    Traders with specific trading strategies can profit off the basis point growth of an asset without carry risk. If Ownership Tokens for DAI were trading at 150 Basis Points with 7 days left till maturity. A trader can take on that position, and carry it to redemption with no risk.
  • Fixed Rate Yield Ladders

    ‌A Fixed Rate Yield Ladder product can provide users with continual liquidity as it continues to compound different proportions of a user's assets into various/different terms.
