 Trending Questions:

  • Were Ember Fund investors impacted by the recent Terra/LUNA collapse?

    • Ember Fund had no exposure to Terra and our investors are safe. During our due diligence on Terra earlier this year, we were uncomfortable with the lack of collateralization on the Anchor Protocol offering 19.5% APY.

 Portfolio Performance:

  • Ember DeFi Index - "The DeFi index continues to lag the broader market and is a bit more sensitive to the fluctuations. TVL and transactions continue to show strength but the value accrual to token holders remains uncertain. We remain positive on the sector long term. In April, the index declined 24.7% while the broader market was down 15%..." For more details on the Ember DeFi Index, click here.

  • The Yield - "Yield on stablecoins in the space has been leveling out across the board, as has ours, but the team is looking into new protocols to boost yield even further in the coming months. Our all-time APY on this portfolio is still crushing the average saving account APY by over 100x..." For more details on The Yield, click here.

  • Ember Metaverse Index - "The Metaverse Index has entered correction territory as the macro market has pulled back and investors have shifted investments from risk to safe. We believe in the long-term potential in the Metaverse, but for now, the market sentiment has caught up to the hype and has level-set expectations near-term. The index declined 32.6% in April and comparatively, ETH was down 14.9% in the same period..." For more details on the Ember Metaverse Index, click here.
