The Perp Trading Competition took place on the Neo MainNet using a Virtual AMM contract. vAMMs support leveraged trading on derivatives markets and don’t carry risks of impermanent loss or face pool liquidity limitations. It was designed to allow traders to test the protocol that powers the Perp module with mock assets. Participants were able to trade virtual Bitcoin using TestUSD test coins at up to 5x leverage.
