About UMA Protocol

At UMA, we’re making it easy to build DeFi products, and in turn creating financial markets that are accessible by all.

We are driven by a shared belief that financial markets should be universally accessible—unrestrained by censorship, your pre-existing financial and social capital, or your beliefs and values. The economic freedom created by open market access enables everyone equal access and footing to pursue prosperity and build their financial independence. Free and universal access to financial markets is a prerequisite to this free, open, and fair financial system. Our vision is to make building DeFi products easy. As a result, we want to enable anyone to attain or transfer any form of risk seamlessly, thus empowering everyone to participate in this new, universally accessible financial system.
