What is arbitrage? Arbitrage refers to the activity when a profit can be made by sourcing a product at one place and selling it at a different place at a higher price in a small time frame.
Case Study. Here is a short case study that is a perfect example of an arbitrage deal.
Best from Hungary shop is a merchant on MT Market that sells products that are a kind of a speciality of Hungary. The shop can source the products from local producers and distributors and put them for sale on MT Market.
Recently the shop created a proposal of nice traditional tablecloths on MT Market.
After a few days, a buyer from Italy appeared and ordered 5 items of the tablecloths. The price was 0.16 ETH each, which also included the delivery price in Europe. After the order came in and the purchase amount was paid to the smart contract, the Best from Hungary shop went to the distributor and purchased the products. That is a typical arbitrage deal, as the product was only sourced after a buyer is secured for the deal. The parcel was shipped with the national post in that case and arrived in Italy after a few days. When this shipment had been completed, the money was released from the smart contract and transferred to the seller’s address.
The sourcing price for the table cloth was about 0.11 ETH while the delivery cost about the same for the whole parcel. So in total, the cost for the shop was 5 products * 0.11 ETH product price + 0.11 ETH delivery price = 0.66 ETH. The sale was completed for 0.16 ETH each, so for the 5 items, it is 0.80 ETH. That is a net profit of 0.14 ETH which represents a healthy 21% margin.
