Vault Flow

  • User deposits $USDC in the vault on the ETH mainnet.
  • The principal is allocated to multiple liquidity pools optimized for risk, liquidity, and yield by the vault (for example Frax 3CRV- Pool ~Staked on Convex).
  • The vault harvests the interest earned in the pool weekly, bridges it to Optimism, and uses it to open a derivative position, which can be either an option or perpetual swap trade.
    • The position can be either long or short, determined by momentum trading strategies with take profit and stop loss targets. The strategy backtest can be found here.
  • The interest is bridged and transferred across protocols and chains by BRAHMA smart contracts. (Currently, we use to bridge across chains)
