Searching for Alpha: InfinityPools

Quick take

  • Risk management is a foundationally important component of leverage. 
  • While on-chain leverage protocols focus on execution layer innovations, the InfinityPools protocol design is centered around its risk engine. 
  • Using a lending market for concentrated spot liquidity positions, InfinityPools is able to circumvent many of the pitfalls of forced deleveraging.
