Gauntlet is DeFi’s risk manager!
We seek to drive adoption and understanding of the financial systems of the future, providing off-chain intelligence that drives on-chain efficiency in Decentralized Finance (DeFi). We work with protocols to manage risk, improve capital efficiency, and manage incentive spend. We also publish cutting-edge research and aim to take a leading role in defining market risk standards across the industry.
All of this is powered by our financial modeling that leverages battle-tested techniques from the algorithmic trading industry to emulate on chain interactions that allow us to make quantitative predictions about complex crypto networks.
Gauntlet is building infrastructure that allows us to simulate and stress-test blockchain protocols, contracts, and network interactions at scale over a wide range of market conditions. Our models ingest a wide range of on-chain and off-chain data, and are continuously calibrated to the current crypto market structure so that our recommendations are always up-to-date. These models and infrastructure power our platform that currently manages risk and optimizes incentives for over $40B in assets.
