Hi, there! It’s an exciting week at Index Coop! For one thing, we’re launching a new structured product, icETH, that helps you earn a yield on ETH. Last week we elected the second Index Council. This representative body provides leadership to the Index Coop and helps us fulfill our community’s vision of unlocking prosperity for everyone. We’re excited to tell you more about v2 of the Index Council. And last but not least, a leader and valued member of our community, Mike Taormina, will be speaking at the 2022 Wharton Fintech Conference. We've got all the details for you about this high-profile crypto event. The Index Coop team
Whether it’s in a central exchange, MetaMask, or a cold wallet, there are many HODLing ETH and waiting for NGU (number go up). There’s a more productive way to gain exposure to ETH and earn an APY with our first yield product, Interest Compounding ETH ($icETH)! icETH provides an enhanced yield on ETH by using a leverage staking strategy built on Set Protocol. Token holders have spot exposure to ETH and nearly 2x the yield compared to simply holding stETH. icETH is built on the same battle-tested leverage token infrastructure as the FLI tokens, which abstracts collateralized debt management, automates rebalancing, and minimizes liquidation risk. Because of the high correlation of the assets involved, icETH is safer than doing using leverage manually. If you’ve been looking for a long-term buy, hold, and compound opportunity, icETH may be right for you. Buy icETH here.
Last November, the Index community took a step forward in the organization’s leadership, governance, and decision-making efforts with the formation of the Index Council. The purpose was to enable more autonomous and decentralized entities to flourish with strategic support from an effective group of high-context contributors. The initial group of seven Index Coop contributors selected by the community laid out the vision, coordinated the hiring of key talent, and played a key role in the Season 1 budget, partner relationships, and delegation of tasks to Nests/Pods. With the first term coming to an end, a second election was recently held for the v2 of the Index Council. These community members will help set and carry out the strategic direction as we work to fulfill our vision to “build decentralized financial products that unlock prosperity for everyone.” Check out the full election results here.
