Interest composition

Transactions realized

Beginning of the month,

  • I moved most of my stable coins from KyberSwap on Polygon and Autofarm on Cronos to Hundred Finance on Fantom as the yield was around 40% APY as MIM.
  • I decided to remove the WBTC/ETH I had on Adamant Finance as the yield was very low and decreasing in value because of the ADDY token. I decided to move everything and some jEUR tokens I still had on polygon in the ATriCrypto3 pool on Curve for around 25% APY in CRV token. The reason is that the CRV token itself has a great yield (around 50% APY) and some a fairly low value.
  • I added around $18K of additional capital as UST stable coin part on Anchor, part in Pylon.
  • I removed 15000 CEL from my Celsius Network wallet and swapped them for CVX and BTRFLY tokens. The idea behind that was that CEL was not doing anything interesting for a long time, so I swapped it to CVX to increase my Votium bribes and invested in Redacted Cartel as it was intended to play the Curve war even more. CVX dumped as much as CEL during the month (-40%), but BTRFLY token dumped 80% because of all the OlympusDAO noise...   
  • I sold my BNB to invest in GNO and get the future airdrop from Cowswap.

Middle of the month,

  • I sold my GNO and invested in Dopex on Arbitrum. Dopex is doing a lot of noise on the crypto option market and the DPX/ETH and rDPX/ETH liquidity pools yields more than 120% APY.
  • I invested my AVAX into Ribbon Finance to try the covered call option strategy.
  • I received the STARS and LUM airdrops on COSMOS. Looking at the future airdrop list (see this link for OSMOSIS and this link for COSMOS), I decided to invest $1K of UST as COSMOS and OSMOS staking to try to improve my future airdrops.
  • I received the GLOW airdrop on Terra thanks to my LUNA staking.
  • I moved my BTCB from Tranchess on BSC to Yearn finance on Fantom as the yield was over 40% APY. This yield seems did not last long and is currently at around 13% APY which is still better than Tranchess.

End of the month,

  • I joined the Lama Airforce to avoid most of the Ethereum fees coming from the Votium bribes.
  • I got nervous by all the noises about SPELL/TIME tokens and the MIM depeg and removed all my stable coins from Hundred Finance as the yield was also decreasing a lot and moved everything in the UST pool on Ethereum in Convex Finance for around 25% APY. The fees are high but it generates CVX and CRV tokens which increase then the future yield and the bribes.

Evolution of the portfolio value

  • The portfolio finished the month with a loss of $120K which is -23.5%. This is the worst month since I'm tracking my portfolio, it is due obviously to the market but also bad timing for Redacted Cartel.
  • If we look at the performance of the main components of the portfolio, the portfolio did worth than BTC (-20.2%) but better than ETH (-26.7%), CVX(-40%) and LUNA (-42%).

Portfolio evolution

  • The stable coin allocation is now 28.2% which I'm comfortable with. I'll probably invest in non-stable coins as soon as I'm confident the market is growing again.
  • The ETH/BTC allocation is around 47%, which is inline with my 40-50% target range.
  • CRV/CVX allocation is around 8.7% and I would like to see it higher than 10%.

Portfolio allocation

The portfolio value decreased a lot this month but still has a conformable margin compared to the value invested.

Portfolio value vs capital invested

The portfolio performance of -23.2% this month is the worst since I'm tracking the performance of the portfolio:

Things to look forward in February

In February, I'm looking forward to the public availability of the Panther Protocol ZKP token. I'll monitor the next brides on Votium and the deployment of the Redacted Cartel and Dopex developments.
