Glossary

  • quote asset: refers to the asset that is the price of a symbol. For the pair ETH USD, USD would be the quote asset. This is what Liquidity Providers deposit and withdraw from the system. Most accounting done in the system is priced using this value.
  • base asset: refers to the asset that is the quantity of a symbol. For the pair ETH USD, ETH would be the base asset. This is what is used as collateral for long calls, and what deltas are priced in to be hedged. You would go long in base relative to quote to hedge a short delta exposure (and short the base relative to the quote to hedge a long delta exposure).
