Visor Finance leads the way with treasury diversification
Visor Finance, the DeFi protocol for Active Liquidity Management, is leading the way in productive treasury management. Visor recently minted $100,000 USD worth of BED tokens to diversify their own treasury, becoming the first protocol to diversify their treasury using BED. Every protocol and DAO holds a variety of assets in their treasury, and the BED Index represents an efficient way to gain exposure to Bitcoin, Ethereum and the DeFi Pulse Index all in one asset.
Visor Finance aims to solve the complexities around providing liquidity and liquidity mining on Uniswap v3. Bankless readers are familiar with the challenges of providing liquidity on Uniswap v3. Although more capital efficient, Uniswap v3 requires liquidity providers to manage the price ranges of their liquidity, and if the prices of the underlying assets go out of range, then the LPs no longer earn fees.
Liquidity providers using Visor Finance mint a Visor Vault NFT and deposit the base assets of an LP pair into their Visor Vault. Visor Finance then actively manages those assets on Uniswap v3 by setting price ranges and implementing rebalancing strategies developed by their research organization Gamma Strategies. Additionally, Visor collects fees and re-invests those fees back into the LP position on behalf of its liquidity providers.
Visor recently released its enterprise-level tool suite called Visor Phantom that adds a liquidity mining layer on top of Uniswap v3. LPs using Visor can deposit the base assets into their vaults and subscribe gaslessly to a DeFi project’s liquidity mining program.
Visor Phantom may also be used by DeFi projects to actively manage their own treasuries or funds received through grants. Most recently, Flipside Crypto’s Uniswap grant proposal proposed using Visor Phantom to generate yield on a UNI grant to fund operations without actually selling the UNI tokens. Many DeFi participants lauded the novelty of using the yield on treasury tokens or grant funds to fund external operations as opposed to immediately selling those tokens upon receipt.
Lastly, Visor Phantom allows DeFi projects to co-manage their liquidity positions with Gamma Strategies. This includes having the ability to develop more customized liquidity providing strategies on Uniswap v3.
With Visor Phantom, DeFi projects and DAOs are empowered to effectively manage their own treasuries. One day in the very near future, treasuries could be using Phantom to co-manage their liquidity positions on the Uniswap v3 BED/ETH pool.
In a world of first movers, you need to make sure to get your rest, and there is no better place to rest than in BED. 🛌
Proposals in Discussion
