What is a Darwin?
A darwin is a financial asset based on a trader strategy. An investor can buy and sell darwins like a stock in Darwinex’s Exchange. For instance, you can buy our LVS darwin at 300 and sell it 3 months later at 312 having a 4% profit. More information here: https://www.darwinex.com/education/help/darwinexchange#what-is-a-darwin
