Gains Network is a non-custodial derivatives trading platform with up to 1,000x leverage originally built on Polygon. The platform allows users to trade derivatives on various assets, including cryptocurrencies, stocks, commodities and stock indices.

Since its launch on Arbitrum on December 31, Gains Network’s TVL has doubled from $17.76 million in January 2023 to $35.94 million. This shows that Arbitrum is the catalyst for the development of TVL on the platform.

Currently, the TVL of the project reaches 48.85 million US dollars. According to DefiLlama’s data, among them, Gains Network has the highest proportion of TVL on Arbitrum, which is 31 million U.S. dollars, while the TVL on Polygon is 17.54 million U.S. dollars. The gTrade decentralized exchange (DEX) is one of Gains Network’s products and the main source of income for the project. gTrade runs on a DAI vault where users can stake assets to open positions and receive gDAI in return. In addition, users can stake gDAI to get gNFT-DAI as rewards. According to Dune Analytics, gDAI Vault currently has a TVL of $28.9 million on Arbitrum and an APR of 16.93%.

With this growing momentum, Gains Network hosted a Q&A session on Twitter on February 19th to answer questions from the community. During the meeting, the project team shared future plans, including expanding to other layer 2 networks and adding more asset classes to its platform.
