YDragon, a cross-chain index fund ecosystem with yield bearing collateral, has announced that they will collaborate with TrustSwap to aid in the execution of their token offering on August 13th, 2021 at 9:00 AM PST.
What is YDragon?
While the meteoric rise of DeFi and blockchain-native projects (thanks to Ethereum smart contracts) has lead to an explosion of innovations and product offerings in a very short period of time, it has also left the average crypto investor/trader in an environment rife with hurdles: massive overhead in terms of required due diligence, laborious and costly transactions, and unnecessary losses. While some have found success in sifting through the wild jungle presented to them, many others have been victimized by the severe lack of tools that could otherwise limit their risk and subsequent losses.
YDragon is a set of DeFi tools that aims to provide that much needed guidance by providing a brand new way of investing in multiple assets and yield farming protocols at once. It takes the traditional finance approach of investing in baskets of assets, but it uses the power of the blockchain to automate the process and remove counterparty risk. Instead of relying on a portfolio manager, it relies on smart contracts to make decisions. Instead of making your assets work for the benefit of the fund management firm, it redistributes yield farm rewards directly to investors.
YDragon’s main objective is to offer investors exposure to the best of DeFi, be it established protocols or up-and-coming dark horses, in a responsible and risk-mitigating way that treats investor capital with the utmost respect.
How Does YDragon work?
The YDragon ecosystem is comprised of 2 main products:
- Index Funds: An index is a fund whose performance tracks a specified basket of underlying assets. Diversification is at the core of YDragon and indexes are the primary vehicles through which investors will be able to invest responsibly. Set on a rolling release schedule, YDragon will be offering baskets of assets that vary in their mission statement: some will offer exposure to assets native to a specific blockchain, others will offer exposure to a specific market segment or niche. YDragon’s first foray into the index space will be bringing together the best of what the Binance Smart Chain has to offer, branding it the BSCX.
- Staking Platform: In addition to gaining exposure to a diversified set of assets, investing in YDragon indexes grants users the opportunity to gain exposure to many safe and popular yield farming protocols. When users invest in YDragon indexes, their funds are used to purchase the underlying assets that the index represents. Those funds are then partially invested in a hand-picked set of yield farming protocols. The rewards generated through such second-order investment activities are then offered back to investors through YDragon’s native staking platform. Current index and YDR token investors will be able to earn an additional source of income by staking their tokens on YDragon’s native platform.

The YDR token will be used for both decentralized governance and staking.
YDR token holders will be able to participate in the decision-making process of current and future YDragon index offerings, including but not limited to:
- Index composition: which assets are chosen to be included in an index
- Asset weights: what proportion of an index should an asset represent
- Yield farming protocols: which third-party protocols should be used to generate rewards, which should not
- Staking reward allocations: what percentage of the rewards pool should be distributed to a specific staking pool
- Staking reward schedules: what staking schedules should be offered
While staking index tokens earns rewards generated from that particular index, YDR token staking earns rewards from all indexes offered by YDragon. A portion of the reward pool of every index will be offered back to YDR token stakers. YDragon also plans to leverage partnerships to offer YDR token staking on third party platforms.
