Get started here: 

What Are Pre-Launch Futures?

A Pre-Launch Futures market offers users the opportunity to trade futures on tokens that have not launched yet. Traditionally, gaining access to assets before their official launch has been a privilege reserved for early contributors, VCs or wealthy insiders. Helix is aiming to disrupt this closed system by allowing, for the first time ever, the decentralized trading of popular upcoming tokens prior to their official launch or listing on a public cryptocurrency exchange. 

The first Pre-Launch Futures market available on Helix will feature the much-anticipated Celestia (TIA) token. Helix is also the first exchange to grant the general public access to the Celestia (TIA) token through this new Pre-Launch Futures product. 

What Is Celestia (TIA)?

Celestia is a modular consensus and data network, built to enable anyone to easily deploy their own blockchain with minimal overhead. Celestia claims to be one of the first modular blockchain networks and has raised $55 million to date from leading funds such as Bain Capital Crypto and Polychain. 

TIA is the native token of the Celestia blockchain. The token is used to secure the network via Proof of Stake and to pay for transaction fees on the network, and eventually a fee burn mechanism similar to EIP-1559 in Ethereum. Celestia is speculated to launch its token on major exchanges within the coming weeks.
