Orbs and IntentX collaborate to elevate on-chain OTC derivatives and spot trading 

Orbs and IntentX collaborate to elevate on-chain OTC derivatives and spot trading 

Orbs, a Layer-3 public blockchain infrastructure project, announced a strategic partnership with IntentX on February 22, a prominent over-the-counter (OTC) marketplace and trading terminal, showing its resolve to establish itself as a significant player in the rapidly diversifying realm of on-chain derivatives as per info shared with Finbold.

Understanding the Orbs-IntentX partnership

The partnership aims to harness Orbs’ advanced Layer-3 technology to explore various use cases for on-chain derivatives. 

Key initiatives include integrating Orbs’ RFQ protocol, Liquidity Hub, into IntentX for RFQ spot trading, as well as expanding IntentX’s spot trading capabilities across Base and Arbitrum blockchains through Liquidity Hub.

Following its collaboration with SYMMIO, a protocol specializing in bilateral “Symmetrical Trading,” the new alliance marks the second pivotal moment for Orbs, highlighting its multiple on-chain derivatives use cases, including off-chain/on-chain communication oracles and the development of a bidding system for hedgers.

Ran Hammer, VP of Business Development at Orbs, expressed his confidence in the collaboration, stating:

“By teaming up with first SYMMIO and then IntentX, Orbs is solidifying its role as a leader in on-chain RFQ trading innovation. As well as integrating our decentralized optimization layer Liquidity Hub into IntentX’s front end for RFQ-based spot trading, we will enhance SYMMIO’s contracts using our L3 technology. We hope this proves to be a shot in the arm for the on-chain derivatives space, and we cannot wait to hear what users think.”

Streamlining the on-chain derivatives market

Working together, Orbs, IntentX, and SYMMIO pave the way for a more streamlined, transparent, and accessible on-chain derivatives market, offering enhanced value compared to traditional DEX-AMMs.

Liquidity Hub has already facilitated significant trade volume, operating on leading native DEX Quickswap on Polygon and Thena on BNB Chain.

IntentX, known for its perpetual futures trading, serves as a robust OTC derivatives exchange.  Central to its operations are SYMMIO’s intent-based (RFQ) core contracts, crucial in trade settlement and agreement facilitation. 

While IntentX functions as a trade coordination quotation marketplace, SYMMIO serves as the settlement layer, enhancing product offerings and emphasizing both innovation and user experience, supporting over 180 tradable markets and offering up to 60x leverage.
