What is Automated DeFi Position Management?

DeFi decision-making can be difficult. Sometimes, you have to be set up with your wallet set up or laser-focused on the markets to take advantage of a price move.

Another factor in DeFi position management is the emotions we all bring to our positions and, ultimately, the outcomes we hope to achieve. However, for some, those emotions when managing a position can be more of a hindrance than a help. That's where Summer.fi automated DeFi position management comes in.

The security hurdle

Before we understand DeFi automations, let's address the elephant in the room. DeFi is about decentralization, security, and putting control back into the hands of users, not some third party.

So, do automations nullify DeFi's vision and promise? No!

Position Automations on Summer.fi are fully on-chain, use on-chain price oracles, and can only execute transactions you specify because they use immutable smart contracts. What does that mean? it means that whatever automation parameters you choose can only executed; no one else can ever change or alter them.

The purpose of automated position management in DeFi

Great outcomes in DeFi are simply the culmination of the decisions that you make and the actions that you take as a result. Why leave your decisions to chance or let them be influenced by a sudden burst of emotions?

Automated Position Management, at its core, allows you to automate your decision-making for your positions.
