Meet the Cozy v2 protocol, a protection marketplace for on-chain yield seekers. Now live on Optimism.
Hedge against risks like smart contract hacks by purchasing protection, or earn yields by providing protection. Don’t see the market you’re looking for? You can use the protocol to create markets yourself. Cozy v2 has the right market, at the right price, at any time.
If you’re a staker, lender, LP, or earning on-chain yield some other way, buying protection on Cozy can help protect your principle from tail risks like the billions of dollars lost in smart contract hacks every year.
Or if you’re a more advanced yield seeker comfortable with underwriting your own risks, providing protection on Cozy can help you earn high risk-adjusted yields.
Other venues for protection suffer from restrictive designs for price, payout, and risk management. Cozy v2 is designed with the philosophy that the best results come from permissionless creation and market forces. Anyone can create a basket of risk with markets that determine price and payout logic as they see fit, increasing the likelihood that a user finds the protection they need.
Key features include permissionless creation of markets, predictable and automatic payouts, programmatic pricing, and high levels of capital efficiency.
You can create markets that cover anything--whether that’s depegs, hacks, custodian risk, or something else entirely. No gate-keepers here.
Buy protection on Cozy v2 and get paid out transparently and automatically, without an opaque claims process.
Pay a fair price, set by programmatic price discovery.
Earn higher yields for providing protection and pay lower prices for buying protection with Cozy v2’s capital efficient design.
Cozy v2 is live on Optimism in a guarded launch.
