This post will explain the APY.Vision Pro membership program and how to get access to the professional features of the site.
So, you want to be a liquidity provider?
Money makers in financial markets have traditionally been large firms that controlled great amounts of capital and resources. They provide liquidity to financial markets while commanding a large fee for doing so. It was once difficult to become a market maker without having the intensive capital these select groups of financiers had.
Thankfully, innovations in blockchain technology and Decentralized Finance (Defi) have opened the floodgates to allow anyone, with any amount of spare capital, to contribute liquidity to markets and earn a fee from doing so. This has been enabled through the creation of Automated Market Making (AMM) protocols — a type of decentralized exchange (DEX) protocol that relies on a mathematical formula to price assets. Unlike traditional exchanges, AMMs price assets are based on a pricing algorithm.
We believe that AMMs and DEXes are truly revolutionary concepts that democratize access to investing and we believe will open the doors to a new breed of investors.
As with any revolutionary ideas, there are risks. When using AMMs, there are risks in providing liquidity. While Liquidity Providers receive the upside through exchange fees collected, the downside is the change in allocation for the tokens provided in the pool, which can result in a negative change in the value of the portfolio. This is known as [the dreaded] Impermanent Loss. It’s called Impermanent Loss as while the loss isn’t realized until you sell, the change in the portfolio’s value represents a current day loss. A good Liquidity Provider (LP) needs to be aware of this fact intimately as it impacts their holdings and ultimately, the gains they receive from providing liquidity. However, this can be extremely difficult to track as token prices swing up and down and gains and losses from each liquidity pool varies even minute to minute.
How APY Vision gives you 20/20 vision
Having been LPs ourselves, we experienced firsthand how there was a lack of visibility into an LP’s holdings and your profits and losses. We decided to solve this problem for ourselves by creating a tool that tracks impermanent gains and losses of your pooled tokens, allowing you to have all the analytics you need at your fingertips with actionable insights to ensure you’re in the best pools.
We truly believe AMMs are here to stay and we want to enable anyone, anywhere, who wants to be an LP to have the best information and knowledge they need to become successful in this fast moving, high stakes game of market making.
Beat the rest to be the best
We believe in a democratized world — after all, that’s why the ethos of blockchain appeals to us first and foremost. With that being said, the huge amount of work we’re doing needs support to continue to provide value to all our users. Our aim is that APY Vision will always be a free tool. For the more advanced LPs however, who require additional insights into the pools they are providing liquidity for, we provide a pro offering that unlocks additional features to give you a leg up over everyone else.
Our pro offering will enable:
- Real-time price quotes (free members get refreshed quotes every hour)
- Remembering previous addresses
- Grouping wallet addresses into one single account view
- Expedited query speeds (your queries will be prioritized)
- Viewing historical gain/losses (free members can only see current liquidity pool positions)
- Tracking Total APY and returns with farming rewards included (a common use case for LPs that farm with staking contracts) *
- Pool Insights advanced search (min 2000 VISION tokens)
- Dark mode option
- Daily summary emails *
- Additional AMMs
- Vote for new features (min 2000 VISION tokens)
- Dedicated #gold channel on Discord (min 2000 VISION tokens)
*Features will be released in subsequent releases
(At launch, we will be supporting a few of these features but we are working hard on rolling all the pro features out!)
Become an APY.Vision Pro, hold a token bro
We’ve been inspired by the innovative products being born in the DeFi space and have modeled our pro membership on these projects. To become a APY.Vision Pro member and unlock pro features, hold our membership tokens in your wallet.
Normally, a subscription service costs the same regardless of your level of usage.
However, with blockchain technology, we can be a bit more creative and innovative to ensure fair access for all.
To activate our APY.Vision Pro features, you only need to hold 100 VISION membership tokens per $10,000 of USD tracked in your wallet(s). This ensures that people who are not big portfolio holders can benefit by holding just a small amount of VISION tokens in their wallet. As you provide more liquidity, you can add more VISION tokens to your wallet to activate the pro features — it’s that simple!
If you want to maximize the amount that can be tracked, you can provide liquidity to our Uniswap ETH/VISION pool and get up to 5x bonus free tracking! Each 1 LP token held will give you tracking for up to $25,000 USD!
Please note that you can mix and match the two options. For example, if you hold 100 VISION tokens and 1 ETH/VISION LP token, then you are eligible to track $35,000 USD worth of current portfolio. Please keep in mind that this requirement is for the total in your current liquidity pools, so please plan ahead when acquiring tokens.
As long as you hold VISION tokens or the ETH/VISION LP token in your wallet, you will unlock PRO access (for life)!
Tokens — not that big of a deal around here
First and foremost, we’d like to stress that the VISION token is not a security token. The token is designed to not hold value and does not have any inherent value. It is merely a way to unlock subscription access to our APY.Vision Pro features. It is not meant to be speculated on. We are not an ICO or claim to return you any gains by acquiring the VISION token. This is simply a membership token and not an asset.
There is a maximum cap of 5,000,000 VISION tokens.
The master plan
At the heart of it, we’re nerds. We want to provide awesome tooling and analytics, especially since the tooling piece is sorely missing for Liquidity Providers today. That will always guide what we do.
The next phase of the Liquidity Network will be to enable monitoring and alerts to ensure Liquidity Providers can take action if there are any sudden pool movements.
Once we perfect the analytics and monitoring pieces, we want to enable a way for Liquidity Providers to automatically enter/exit liquidity pools based on alerts and parameters they set up. This will be done via smart contract wallets that only the users have access to and it will be non-custodial (because we don’t want to touch your funds with a nine foot pole, even if you paid us).
We will also be licensing our API for enterprise use. To access the API on a commercial basis, companies will need to pay for a monthly/yearly plan (in VISION tokens) and the tokens collected will be burned.
Finally, because Liquidity Provider tokens are currently held in a wallet (and not doing much), we will be looking at ways in which we can leverage them. Imagine being able to collateralize your LP tokens and borrow/lend against it to magnify your gains. Rest assured our valuable community members (you) will be able to vote on the final product.
