A New Kind of Hedge Fund

Motivations

The Quantitative Thesis

The State of Decentralized Finance

Structural Assets in TradFi and DeFi, a Comparison

  • Currency (eg. USD, YUAN, EURO)
  • Securities
  • Commodities (eg. gold, oil, grains)
  • Real Estate
  • Cryptocurrencies (eg. ETH, BTC, DOT)
  • Stablecoins (eg. DAI, USDC)
  • AMM LPs (eg. SushiSwap, Thorchain)
  • Interest-bearing Tokens (eg. cTokens, aTokens, yTokens)

The Road to Maturity

  • Development of market infrastructure that is capital efficient according to DeFi’s structural assets,
  • Development of structured financial products that utilize such infrastructure.

Yield Aggregators are Hedge Funds, but are they sustainable?
