Aevo is the first Derivatives L2, focused on options and perpetuals trading. Aevo Exchange is a highly robust options and perpetuals CLOB decentralized exchange built on the Aevo L2 rollup on the Optimism stack, with Aevo Strategies (automated strategies) built on top. This architecture allows for low gas fees and low latency whilst significantly improving liquidity and capital efficiency.
