DeFi Capital Inflow | DCI

DCI - DeFi Capital Inflow - No Margin No Leverage - tracks aggregated changes in the capital inflows within the crypto market. This is a direct correlation between volume and value shifts aggregated over a given one month period.

If the correlation between the two converge, resulting in volume and value tightening on a one month trailing period - capital inflow - this asset is structured to appreciate in value. The opposite is also true if crypto markets shift towards risk off status where outwards capital flows increase - resulting in depreciating value. However, volatility is baked into the product, therefore it can have wider fluctuations based on said correlations as well as typical market swings. As such, it can act as a shorter to mid-term trading tool based on portfolio bias of the aforementioned.

Mints start at 10 USD worth of ISA and will theoretically trade as a summation of the aforementioned ratios. The higher the correlation, the more sensitive DCI is towards positive moves. The lower the correlation, the less sensitive the asset trades. Over time - the range will rise or fall based on the relationship between the two, but the bias representation will remain consistent.

Like all collateralized products on our platform, sRho is used to secure the short position. DCI utilizes a 2:1 collateral ratio to secure the position. A 2.5% mint fee is required to mint DCI - with the minter receiving sDCI in return as a receipt.

A 2.5% fee applies to swapping sDCI. sDCI can be bonded and sold to the Treasury. Short-sellers will also pay interest to the pooled long sDCI at a daily interest rate of 0.2% per day - which will be paid for in sRHO. This daily interest will be calculated at the time of establishing the short by entering the maximum number of days you will be short for. Once the time limit is up - the short contract will expire and the short closed. If DCI is below the price when the short was initiated, the aggregated long pool of DCI will pay the unit count worth of profit to the now closed short holder. The time interest the short paid to the collected pool of longs will then be distributed to the longs proportional to their positional unit count.

However, the interest will only be paid to the long holders that were in the pool at the time the short was established. If a short-seller chooses to close out their position at a loss, the collateral lost will be divided among all long sDCI unit holders that were in the pool at the time the short was established. If the short-seller closes out their position at a profit, the percentage of the profit will be divided amongst all long sDCI and the appropriate sDCI units will be transferred to the short-seller as profit.

Shorting above the total float of DCI in the lending pool is prohibited.
