Our organization is multi-faceted and assumes numerous roles, including but not limited to acting as a DeFi consultancy think tank, liaising with the academic community to participate in private and state-sponsored blockchain RnD programs as well as applying typical hedge fund and risk management strategies in order to generate monetary returns using DeFi protocols. Market insights are engineered by fetching and sorting on-chain metrics in real-time to formulate comprehensive data-backed strategies with high probability outcomes.
