Optimus is a decentralized peer-to-contract protocol for yield aggregator of IRC-20 tokens. The protocol consists of free, publicly available, open-source software, including smart contracts that are deployed on the ICON blockchain.
Use of Optimus involves various risks, including, but not limited to, losses in connection with the deposit of digital assets to the Optimus protocol.
Smart contract risk. Optimus smart contracts have been audited, but there’s always the possibility of a bug or vulnerability that compromises participants’ funds. It would not be possible to recover them.
Rebalancing risk. When you deposit ICX into Balanced borrowing strategy, it’s used to keep the value of Balanced assets stable (so traders can always sell bnUSD for $1 of ICX). Since your ICX is used to borrow from Balanced, some of your collateral will be sold over time, but your loan will also be reduced by an equal amount. Learn how rebalancing affects your position
