What is SpinFi?

Spin Finance (SpinFi) is a decentralized derivatives trading protocol on Solana. The team entered the crypto space in 2016, starting as algorithmic traders and investment/hedge fund managers. AlexP explained how the team decided to start their own project, and detailed how the project is fully decentralized. While five members were present for the AMA, the team is currently made up of 15 members.

The team felt that centralized financial platforms did not offer investor anonymity or proper custody options. They launched the platform on Solana thanks to its speed, low fees, and strong liquidity.

SpinFi Features and Goals

The SpinFi team explained they want to build mobile trading applications with simple interfaces, particularly for Asian markets. The SpinFi Whitepaper emphasizes utility for retail traders; the team confirmed this is their target audience. The team seeks to stand out on Solana by providing both futures and derivatives.

The SpinFi token will serve as a governance token for the platform DAO, and will also be usable as collateral, to create leverage, and for staking on the platform. 

Alex explained that the platform is a fairly textbook decentralized market maker and orderbook. 


The platform recently announced a partnership with Slope for mobile perpetuals. Slope is a Decentralized Exchange (DEX) and wallet based on Solana.

More exciting news is also coming in January, so stay tuned!
