On The Brink with Castle Island

Aug 15, 2022

In this episode, Uddhav Marwaha, co-founder and CEO of Friktion Labs, joins us to discuss Friktion's approach to a full stack portfolio management platform in defi. We cover a plethora of topics, including:

  • The opacity surrounding defi yields and distinguishing fleeting opportunities from sustainable sources of income
  • Using options overwriting and basis strategies to generate more durable returns and provide portfolio protection across market conditions
  • In-housing core tooling such as Friktion's RFQ system (Channel RFQ) and an exotic options DEX (Entropy) to unlock time and cost efficiencies
Friktion's emphasis on demystifying complex products and deconstructing sources of risk and yield in crypto differentiate it from the pack. To complement the data and analytics within the application, the team frequently publishes research breaking down complex topics.
