Portfolio Management: Fee Generation in AMMs

In this blog post, we will explore a more nuanced aspect of liquidity provision in a CFMM: how fees are generated on the CFMM and how does your liquidity distribution affect that? Our aim here is to provide an accessible yet comprehensive explanation of fee growth in a CFMM and how path dependency plays a crucial role within the process.

Introduction to On-Chain Portfolio Management

In this article, I will outline two key use cases for Replicating Market Makers (RMMs) and introduce a method for recovering a trading function based on a desired liquidity distribution. I then show how this is exactly the technology we need for passive portfolio management and how Primitive Portfolio utilizes it..

Gamma Exposure for Liquidity Providers Leads to Loss-Versus-Rebalancing

This post compares DeFi LPs and TradFi MMs and connects the dots between LVR and GEX. We discuss how market designers, crypto traders, LPs and quants can build positions to reduce the GEX loss vector. By understanding GEX and LVR, LPs can try to predict how to best manage their positions.

RMM-01 Math Approximation Error

Early Sunset for RMM-01

On September 8, 2022, a liquidity pool in the Primitive RMM-01 protocol experienced a pricing issue. No user funds are at risk because once the pool expired, there was no way to exploit the pool’s pricing; however, we recommend all users remove 100% of their liquidity from any outstanding RMM-01 positions.
