The balanced strategy maintains a specific target weight per crypto token or Index with the remainder of capital used for yield farming. The strategy sets aside a part of the portfolio in cash that will be algorithmically used to buy more of a given asset when markets selloff. When markets rally, the strategy will rebalance to move part of the portfolio in cash. This creates an automatic buy-low, sell-high dynamic that works well for a long term investor.
Yield farming earns a return on spare cash while waiting to be utilized by the Balanced Strategy. This typically entails providing liquidity for others to swap between stablecoins for a fee, or lending to money markets.
A 50-50 balanced strategy using our Global Crypto Index implemented on BSC
A user mints the GCI with BNB and deposits GCI into the Balanced Strategy Vault
The strategy then invests 50% into Teragon GCI
The remaining 50% is in cash and yield farms
Every month, the strategy rechecks the weights and rebalances if the target weights are off by 10% or more. This rebalancing is automated inside the smart contracts
If there is a market selloff and now the GCI value is only 40% of the total, then the strategy will use the available cash to buy more of the underlying Index to bring the weight back to 50%
Teragon charges a 1% annual vault fee on all Tensors.
The resulting revenue is directed to the Teragon treasury.
