Blockchain Native Asset management

Alpha DeFi is a trustless asset manager that combines over 20 years of experience in legacy finance with the newest and most cutting edge investment strategies in the world of digital assets. 

Syntethic Digital Assets

We specialize in portfolio management in the world of  mAssets that are priced using oracles and secured on the Terra & Ethereum blockchains using the Mirror Protocol.

Mirror Protocol

MIR is a Terra token that governs the Mirror Protocol which allows the creation of fungible assets, that track the price of real world assets. The project aims to enable 24/7 equities trading by minting “synthetic” versions of the real world assets.

SPAR Pools

All Alpha DeFi funds and services are held on SPAR, a decentralized asset pool management company that allows users to seemlessly connect their crypto wallets to asset managers. SPAR is currently in beta testing and will be rolling out v.1 soon.

Our Team

We were born into the world of legacy finance but have quickly realized that decentralized asset management is the inevitable future of this industry. Our goal is to help build that future and make it as bright as possible.

The alpha DeFi Lineup

Astro Fund

A long only strategy with Active Spread Tracking benchmarked against the SP500 (mSPY) that aims to outperform the benchmark over a full market cycle. Astro uses a series of traditional quantitative metrics and newer machine learning techniques to help isolate the best performing mAssets in the available SPAR universe. Astro typically holds anywhere from 5-12 assets at any given time. While only engaging in long positions, if a hedging signal is received, Astro may purchase an inverse product such as mVIXY to help smooth out drawdowns. Active Spread Tracking is a system used to identify mAssets that have moved too far from their true Oracle Price for an added layer of Alpha. 

Fund Fee: 2% – 7%


The SP500 index with a dynamic hedge benchmarked against the SP500 (mSPY). Smart Index spends most of its time fully invested in mSPY, while  rotating to UST or ANC when a hedging signal is received. Hedge signals can last anywhere from 1 day to 2 weeks, and look to provide an investor with broad market exposure while generating Alpha by smoothing out drawdowns. alphaDefi's hedging signals come from several in-house traditional and machine learning models. With the current assets available, Smart Index will use mVIXY or UST position to achieve the desired hedge.

Fund Fee: 2% – 5%

Spar index

A low cost volatility weighted index of all available SPAR mAssets except inverse products such as mVIXY. SPAR index looks to provide clients with smart constructed exposure mix of cryptocurrencies and mStocks.
