Alice thinks the US Dollar may take a dive within the next 2 quarters. Bob believes the market has underestimated the value of gold during an extended financial crisis. From anywhere in the world and without access to the assets, Alice and Bob can agree with their counterparties on a price oracle and take those positions with an AnyHedge smart contract. Whether they work peer-to-peer, through an exchange or through an OTC desk, they still get the advantages of AnyHedge.
By building AnyHedge on a UTXO-based blockchain, each contract is fully independent from top to bottom - limiting systemic risk, increasing flexibility, increasing privacy, and making contract upgrades trivial.
If you are running a billion dollar OTC desk you will need to keep careful records of your clients' trades. In other markets, privacy may be critical.
AnyHedge is a completely unbiased protocol and you decide whom you trade with.
