SYNTHR is a synthetic asset protocol that enables users to mint and trade on-chain derivatives of various financial assets using trustless financial contracts. It uses novel systems for collateral man- agement, risk mitigation, price stability, cross-chain interoperability, and composability. Two critical aspects of the decentralized ecosystem have made it possible to implement the protocol’s framework. The first is the advent of efficient oracle networks, which provide tamper- proof inputs, outputs, and computations to support advanced smart contracts. The second is the evolution of on-chain debt management principles to maintain protocol solvency and liquidity.
