Frequently Asked Questions
What is D2.Finance?
D2.Finance is a suite of dynamic quantitative vaults designed to capitalize on market inefficiencies in the nascent DeFi industry. Composability is the cornerstone of DeFi, and by leveraging it in trading strategies, D2.Finance aims to achieve a market edge.
Strategies are selected by depositing USDC into a vault that aligns with the user’s investment goals. After depositing the capital, it is locked inside the vault for the designated epoch.
What is the business structure?
D2.Finance is a platform created by BWS Labs. D-Squared is not a legal entity and does not have employees or offices. BWS Labs will steward the protocol until re-launch as a Midao.
Why do I need D2 Vaults?
If you are happy to follow a simple long-only HODL strategy or are willing and able to design, risk-assess, and implement more complex strategies, then you don't need us.
Many people are unable or unwilling to take on the burden of running their investment strategies. D2.Finance gives users a simple interaction with the vaults (choose a strategy, deposit USDC into the vault, then redeem or roll over these USDC upon epoch completion) while handling all of the complexity for you.
How does D2 differ from other protocols (e.g., STFX)?
D2.Finance is a platform hosting vaults whose funds are actively managed by a team of professional traders. We differ from STFX in that we have a handpicked trading team who create and execute strategies D2 has determined to fit a balanced product offering. There is no “crowd-sourcing” element and no intra-protocol competition.
D2.Finance strategies are not yield farming, nor are they passive. It is not “fire and forget”.

What is D-Squared's relationship to BWS Labs?

These are separate from the D2.finnace business, but D2.Finance will take advantage of the close relationship where possible as a related party.
