Introduction
Products > Introduction
Idle is a decentralized protocol and set of products that aim to unlock the power of decentralized finance as a one-stop source of yield. It allows users to algorithmically optimize their digital asset allocation across leading DeFi protocols, whether they want to maximize it or keep tabs on their risk/return profile.
The Idle Product Suite is currently composed of
Best Yield
Perpetual Yield Tranches
A lending aggregator that automatically analyses supply rate functions across integrated protocols and total funds in the pool to constantly rebalance capital across any number of protocols to earn the highest interest rate possible with very high precision. It is currently available for Ethereum and Polygon networks.
PYTs are capital pools that automatically generate and tranche yields and risks based on a range of market-neutral yield strategies, including lending income, trading fees from Automated Market Makers, and protocol incentive farming. Pools are associated with two risk-adjusted products: Senior and Junior Tranches.
The former Risk-adjusted strategy has been deprecated in October 2021 and it's no more part of the current Idle Products suite.
