What is Mirror Protocol?
Mirror Protocol is a decentralized ecosystem, where token holders govern the on-chain treasury and code changes. Mirrored assets are blockchain tokens that behave like “mirror” versions of real-world assets by reflecting the exchange prices on-chain.
They give traders the price exposure to real assets while enabling fractional ownership, open access and censorship resistance as any other cryptocurrency.
Unlike traditional tokens which serve to represent a real, underlying asset, mAssets are purely synthetic and only capture the price movement of the corresponding asset.
Mirrored assets provide the advantages of fractional orders, global access, and order execution in almost real time. They allow global accessibility without entry barriers.
To execute a fractional order in traditional finance, you bundle several to execute a unitary transaction. The process of gathering all the orders into one requires additional waiting time.
With Mirror, orders volume is simply represented as a number on the blockchain, so there is no need for the intermediary bundling process.
