Hegic is described to be an on-chain peer-to-pool options trading protocol built on Ethereum. It is claimed that the Hegic protocol pioneers a peer-to-pool approach to options trading. The project claims that it works like an AMM (automated market maker) for options. Users can trade non-custodial on-chain call and put options as an individual holder using the simplest and intuitive interfaces. Use MetaMask, Trust Wallet or Argent wallets to trade options without KYC, email or registration required. It is further described that the Hegic protocol generates settlement fees in Ether (ETH) and WBTC paid each time an option contract is bought. Public are able to acquire HEGIC tokens and activate a staking lot that gives its holder a right to receive staking rewards. 100% of settlement fees in ETH and WBTC generated by the protocol are distributed among the staking lots holders.
