An Interest Rate Swap (IRS) is a forward contract in which one stream of future interest payments is exchanged for another based on a specified principal amount. IRSwill help traders and institutions hedge their exposure to variable interest rates. The product will also allow traders to speculate on the rates themselves, “thereby creating liquidity and better price discovery of the interest rates.”
Delta also plans to offer interest rate swaps on other variable-rates in the crypto ecosystem such as lending rates on Compound Finance for USDC, DAI, ETH etc. Also, its planning to offer this product on the stability fee on DAI.
