As retail investors and institutions react to the recent events, either selling off or buying the dip, some may find themselves tempted by the seemingly stable traditional financial sector. Despite the issue of volatility, the cryptocurrency market has demonstrated its resilience time and time again. By using stablecoins, investors are able to avoid the downwards volatility of crypto, and sit pretty, all the while earning interest on their stablecoins with Bumper — one of the most anticipated DeFi launches of 2021.
While the cryptocurrency space keeps a close eye on the markets, Bumper has been busy building a solution in…
We’re all familiar with Yield Farming. It’s a staple of DeFi, remaining among the fastest-growing segments. You stake, you yield. Your tokens go into a deterministic algorithm that interfaces with other deterministic algorithms, lending out your capital firepower for their purposes while they compensate you in the native token you’re helping them create. The inertia of the capital is negligible, and so there’s a constant stream of loud voices from new projects, all vying for a part of the near hyperventilating hyper-liquid liquidity Yield Farming party. …

Welcome all to the Bumper AMA👋
I’m Jason, CMO at Bumper and I’m going to start off with a little get to know you session with Jonathan, our CEO, Gareth, our COO and Sam our CTO.
Then we’ll jump into answering…
The idea of being able to receive price protection for cryptocurrency is something that, up until recently, seemed a long way off. In the midst of an explosion of DeFi protocols, Bumper has stepped in to fill the gaping hole in the cryptocurrency market, to allow people to protect their crypto without losing any of the upside.
Over the past month, the volatility of cryptocurrency has been sending shockwaves through the market, leading many concerned investors fleeing for the hills.
The situation would perhaps be different, if investors were able to avoid cryptocurrency’s extreme volatility, or rather than avoid, simply…
At Bumper, two major stakeholders make the protocol work. These are the liquidity providers (makers) and the policyholders (takers). Together, these form a market in which takers pay a premium to protect the value of their assets, while makers earn a premium for supplying liquidity to the protocol and taking on risk.
But all great things have small beginnings. It was true when Satoshi Nakamoto released the seminal Bitcoin whitepaper to a small group of cypherpunks, and it’s still true today, as our growing community gears up for the first phase of our platform launch.
In line with this, we…
Following the announcement of our LP Program we’ve had some great engagement in our community about the program and how we’re rewarding supporters. From these conversations we’ve identified that there is some confusion regarding the yield figures we’ve been giving and the definitions and calculations associated with them. I’d like to take this opportunity to clarify.
The nature of this LPP and the rewards we’re offering do make this discussion less straightforward. An APR is traditionally used for lending calculations and, as its name suggests, is an Annual Percentage Rate. An APY (Annual Percentage Yield), however, takes into account a…

Bumper has a unique team of technical innovators on board, led by a team that began yield farming back when less than 30 cryptocurrencies supported masternode infrastructure. A partnership with Block 8, the blockchain product development studio and the creators of Havven, led to the creation of Bumpers protocols.
Needless to say, Bumper’s ecosystem has been designed in a way to effectively protect against market volatility. Aside from providing a product that protects against volatility, the design of Bumper’s ecosystem and the technology behind Bumper’s risk interchange system is what makes the platform so unique. Bumper’s ecosystem is made up…

This bull run has seen a slew of institutional investors open their minds and their balance sheets to cryptocurrencies, with many of the financially initiated arguing that this institutional adoption is leading to the first crypto supercycle — whereby the price of crypto assets rise across the board to such a degree that previous market booms pale in comparison.
Data provider Bitcoin Treasuries posits that 6.76% of the total supply of BTC is held by institutional players, with notable high-profile entrants to the movement ranging from Tesla to revered…
