The Sommelier architecture enables a wide variety of dynamic strategies, including portfolio management and yield strategies. We are proposing to launch a dynamic index of DeFi tokens called DeFi Stars. The strategy will initially take exposure to the following blue-chip assets:

  • COMP
  • CRV
  • LDO
  • MKR
  • AAVE

We believe this strategy will provide the most flexible and efficient way to take exposure to DeFi growth. Existing offerings such as Index Coop’s DeFi Pulse Index provide similar exposure, but rebalance very infrequently and are therefore unable to respond to changing market conditions. DeFi Stars will utilize the Sommelier architecture to provide an index with more appealing characteristics.

See this presentation for more details on the historical development of the strategy, including backtesting performance in chapter V:
