  • Sam Bacha

Abstract

"A way to hedge transaction inclusion uncertainty over a period of time"
GasEVOis an embedded volumetric options instrument in which the underlying asset is technically block_spacebut more specifically GasToken. An exchange-traded instrument in which end-users can hedge against volatility in gas pricing during network congestion events (NCEs). As smart contract based wallets continue to proliferate along with Gas Station Relay Networks programmed ways of controlling gas pricing to compensate for the increases in pricing can be made. Additionally, we can examine market-oriented ways of establishing long term contract delivery times, such as an auction.
