What is Metagovernance? DeFi’s Sleeping Giant

In this video @mel.eth, our Governance Lead, explains one of the most unique and misunderstood qualities of the INDEX token: Metagovernance.

Now on Polygon - 2x and Inverse BTC Flexible Leverage Indices

With so much attention on Argent last week, don’t forget that we launched two new Polygon-native Flexible Leverage Indices (FLI) - BTC2x-FLI-P and iBTC-FLI-P

Just like the other FLI tokens, BTC2x and Inverse BTC are structured products in ERC-20 format that enable traders to automate leveraged exposure in a completely decentralized manner. BTC2x targets a long 2x exposure to BTC and Inverse BTC targets a short -1x exposure to BTC, and both employ a flexible leverage ratio for optimal rebalancing outcomes. Read More

A Deep Dive Into Product Strategy

At this week’s Leadership Forum, @DocHabanero walked the community through how the Product Nest thinks about product strategy and how they prioritize the pipeline.

This shift in tactics is being guided by developing products that the market is telling us that they want and that are profitable in the short term & long term. Index Coop is becoming domain area experts about what’s possible to build given today’s liquidity constraints, market forces, and engineering capabilities.
