Yield Opportunities: When attractive yield farming or staking opportunities are available, using Multiply can increase your returns over a 1x position.

Customizing Risk Exposure and Active Position Management

One advantage of opening a Multiply Vault is the ability to tailor the level of risk to your individual preferences. Vaults provide flexible parameters to find the right balance between risk and potential returns.

Getting the Right Amount of Risk for You: Multiply Vaults enable you to adjust crucial settings such as liquidation prices and loan-to-value (LTV) ratios. The liquidation price determines the threshold at which your position may be liquidated to cover the loan, while the LTV ratio dictates how much you can borrow against your collateral.

By carefully configuring these settings, you can establish a risk profile that aligns with your risk tolerance. For instance, setting a higher liquidation price and lower LTV ratio reduces liquidation risk and may limit your potential upside. Contrarily, a lower liquidation price and higher LTV ratio increase your leverage and potential returns but amplify the liquidation risk.
