Launching Inverse ETH FLI

After launching both the 2x and inverse Flexible Leverage Indices (FLIs) tracking MATIC earlier this week, Scalara now launches the Inverse ETH FLI on Polygon.

The Inverse ETH Flexible Leverage Index, or short iETH-FLI-P, is an index that implements a collateralized debt position to replicate -1x the return of ETH. Its launch completes the ETH FLI suite on Polygon after the ETH2X-FLI-P launch in December 2021. More information about inverse FLIs are available in our article about launching MATIC FLIs on Polygon.

Flexible Leverage Indices implement a collateralized debt position in a controlled and efficient way to achieve leveraged or inverse returns and, by abstracting its management into a simple index, make it investable as a single ERC20 token. Thereby, implementation costs are socialized and the continuous effort to maintain a healthy debt position is automated away. In addition, a unique algorithm helps to lower the transaction fees.

Furthermore, Flexible Leverage Indices being implemented on Polygon means that entering and exiting a leveraged position is possible for a fraction of the cost that one would normally pay on Ethereum’s Mainnet.

Below the hypothetical index performance over the last three months is shown:
