There is no denying that decentralized finance (DeFi) has gained popularity among investors looking beyond the traditional finance industry that is dominated by banks and other legacy finance institutions.
Despite its growing appreciation, the sector is far from being a simple concept. Understanding its underlying technology and features has made it a daunting task for new investors to engage in the space. These novices would rather dive head-first into yield farms and automated investment platforms without due diligence brought upon by their drive to enter the world of DeFi.
For this reason, dHEDGE was introduced to provide convenience and expertise to investors. This one-stop shop socialized asset management platform on Ethereum, Optimism, and Polygon was developed by combining a human touch and automated-investment strategies present on other DeFi platforms.
Within the platform, asset managers trade synthetic crypto, FX, commodities, and equities through the zero-slippage model of Synthetix. dHEDGE is non-custodial and gives back users the ability to control their assets while also offering a risk-adjusted manager ranking for ease of partnerships.
To assist investors in selecting their managers that would help them oversee their funds, the platform employs a Sortino ratio rating. This would select the best possible manager depending on user needs.
dHEDGE also features a social management aspect that allows flexibility and user-friendliness for investors. For asset managers, the platform amasses coveted protocols like Uniswap, 1inch, and AAVE — all available through a single interface.
Additionally, dHEDGE operates on scalable Layer-2 blockchains, including Polygon and Optimism, to give asset managers access to tools to better help them achieve their clients’ goals.
Recently, dHEDGE launched Toros, an incubated protocol built on Polygon. Toros is a standalone protocol that unlocks maximized inflation hedging, yield, and liquidity capabilities for the whole Polygon ecosystem. The protocol is comprised of three vaults and includes various toolboxes that bring capabilities previously exclusive to asset managers to a new investor-friendly interface.
Bridging investors with competent managers plays a key role for DeFi and crypto to fully go mainstream. While automated-investment strategies are helpful for season investors, having the expertise of an active manager will make people’s crypto journey worthwhile. dHEDGE does just that.
