AlphaSwap basic UI (Mainnet). Basically you are speculating on price movements in the next epoch. (for veterans : it's TWAP-to-TWAP, not CLOSE-to-CLOSE).
ALSO: ===> DON'T STAKE TOO MUCH UNLESS THERE ARE ENOUGH STAKES ON THE OTHER SIDE !!! <===
for this market, an epoch = ? (always aligned to exact hour)
||TWAP from tThis to tNext
||reading... (takes 10 ~ 60 seconds)
- If current epoch is x, you speculate on the TWAP of epoch x+1 vs the TWAP of epoch x. (TWAP = time-weighted average price)
- If the price rises in epoch x, then usually the TWAP of epoch x+1 > TWAP of epoch x. And vice versa. So the bull and bear bets are not symmetric.
