Today, popular yield aggregators such as Beefy and Pickle do not offer hedging. This means that if users want to eliminate exposure to market movements, they have to do it manually (which is very time consuming and error-prone) or limit themselves to low-yield stable pools.
Scion Finance takes on the complex tasks of hedging and rebalancing so that users can enjoy much higher returns.
Scion’s value proposition is most similar to that of Yearn Finance, but we are able to offer more sophisticated hedging and rebalancing strategies than Yearn can. This is because Scion managers are permissioned and are thus able to take on more complex tasks.
As we battle-test our security measures it is possible that Hedge Farming strategies can be used in a fully decentralized manner.
