This guide explains the few important values you need to know and shows you how to interact with the UMA protocol and using PerlinX.

Global Collateralization Ratio (USD): The current USD ratio of synthetic asset/collateral. Global Collateralization Ratio (Token): The number of tokens ratio of synthetic asset/collateral. Expiry: When the synthetic asset will expire and all token holders can redeem the synthetic asset for the underlying collaterals.
