Interest composition

Transactions realized

Beginning of the month,

  • I added around $21K new investment to the portfolio. I invested them on the Convex Finance ibCHF/sCHF liquidity pool for around 20% APY.
  • I also moved most of my stable coins from the UST/3pool to the ibCHF/sCHF liquidity pool on Convex Finance
  • I received the third part of my ZKP tokens from PantherProtocol, still lower than the price I purchased them originally. I continue to stake them until the first product gets released.
  • I claimed my Convex Finance rewards to benefits from low gas fees and relocked my CVX on the new Convex Finance contract to benefits from the next Votium bribes.
  • I claimed my Votium bribes (twice in the month) and reinvested the rewards into cvxCRV on Convex Finance.
  • I claimed my MINE reward from Pylon and convert them as ASTRO to stake them on Astroport,
  • I also swapped to ASTRO various liquidities I had on Osmosis to stake them on Astroport

Middle of the month,

  • I moved my WBTC from Curve to a vault at QiDAO on Fantom. I then borrowed around $35K against these WBTC that I moved in the MAI/USDC liquidity pools for around 15% APY. QiDAO also provides an additional 5% incentives to borrow against WBTC. 
  • I swapped my EURS for EURT on Convex Finance as the yields was decreasing a lot. 
  • I received the FPIS airdrop from Convex Finance that I converted to FXS and moved in the cvxFXS/FXS liquidity pool on Convex Finance
  • I converted my COW airdrop into CRV and staked them as cvxCRV on Convex Finance.
  • I unstaked half of my LUNA to refract and stake them on Prism protocol for between 20 and 30% APY.

End of the month,

  • I moved my rETH/ETH LP tokens from Convex Finance to Lend Flare and borrowed some ETH against them. The reason is that the rETH price is around 15% lower than the ETH price and this liquidity pools does not bring any interesting reward anymore. I still think that rETH will regain its real value when the Ethereum merge happens, but it will take a while...
  • I moved the borrowed ETH on fantom in QiDAO in a second vault. I borrowed around $50K against the ETH that I also moved in the MAI/USDC liquidity pools for around 15% APY. QiDAO also provides an additional 10% incentives to borrow against ETH.
  • I moved $3K of UST from Anchor to Aperture Finance to be invested in a Delta-neutral-mETH strategy.

Evolution of the portfolio value

  • The portfolio finished the month with a loss of $71K which is -11.2%.
  • If we look at the performance of the main components of the portfolio, the portfolio did better than all thanks to its large stable coin allocation: LUNA(-20%), CVX (-19%), BTC(-16%) and ETH(-13%).

Portfolio evolution

  • The stable coin allocation is now 30.6% which is fine. 
  • The ETH/BTC allocation is around 46.5%, which is inline with my 40-50% target range.
  • CRV/CVX/BTRFLY allocation is around 8% and decreased this month. My target is between 10-15%.

Portfolio allocation

The portfolio value still has a conformable margin (+102%) compared to the value invested + earning received.

Capital invested vs portfolio value

The portfolio performance of -11.2% this month is lower than the average which is around +11%:

Things to look forward in May

In May, I'm looking forward to evolution of the macro situation. I'm planning to monitor my new QiDAO vaults and optimize the rewards from the borrowed stable coins. If I will continue participating to the Curve war, I will probably participate to the new Astroport war and maybe also to the Balancer war as well...
