Announcing our Strategic Design Partnership with Edge Capital

This collaboration focuses on redefining DeFi hedge fund operations with tailored leverage environments, innovative smart contracts, and a shared vision for transparent, efficient finance.

We are thrilled to announce a design partnership between Arkis and Edge Capital, marking a significant step forward in our mission to accelerate the maturity of DeFi. This collaboration aims to completely change the way DeFi hedge funds operate, providing them with tailored leverage environments to facilitate bilateral OTC transactions between LPs and trading funds.

Edge Capital is an alternative investment manager with a focus on digital assets, blockchain, and DeFi markets. They have expertise in macro trading and analysis, portfolio and risk management, as well as knowledge in fintech, DeFi, and blockchain technologies.

We share a commitment to innovation, better custodian solutions, transparency, and the pursuit of excellence and we’re excited about the impact our synergistic alignment of values and vision will have on the future of finance.

A Partnership Built on Innovation

Our mission at Arkis has always been to stay at the forefront of DeFi innovation. By joining forces with renowned DeFi funds Edge Capital, we are taking a giant leap towards achieving that goal. Together, we are designing and building a product that will cater specifically to the needs of DeFi hedge funds.

Central to this initiative is the use of secure smart contracts for investment. These contracts will allow both liquidity providers (LPs) and traders to participate in a whitelisted investment strategy, using whitelisted collateral on specific integrated DeFi protocols, all within the Arkis environment.

What This Means for the Future

With this partnership, we aim to:

Devise New Tailored Leverage Environments: We are committed to creating leverage environments that fit seamlessly into new investment strategies. These strategies will utilize capital-efficient leverage, which can then be executed and paired with LPs using Arkis infrastructure.

Explore Opportunities with Specific Funds: Our collaboration will allow us to delve deeper into tailored leverage environments with particular funds. One such opportunity is funding a liquidity pool that will be used to provide leverage for Edge Capital’s investment strategy, as well as other funds.

Implement Managed Smart Contracts: We are exploring the potential of our managed smart contracts to facilitate secure asset managers between portfolio managers and investors. These contracts will serve as the decentralized counterpart to a managed account in traditional finance, providing an independent intermediary between manager and investor.

In essence, Edge Capital will assist us in refining, testing, challenging, and adapting our product to meet the ever-evolving requirements of institutional DeFi. Together, we are poised to set new standards and redefine the boundaries of what's possible in the DeFi asset management.
