Today we announce another significant milestone — the arrival of Cega on Arbitrum. This expansion amplifies our presence in the cutting-edge DeFi space, as we bring our unique structured investments product to the growing Arbitrum community. Arbitrum users can now generate safer, superior yields on their USDC holdings using our innovative strategic option structures.

The Journey So Far

Since our launch in June 2022, Cega has emerged as a leading provider of structured investments in DeFi, having processed over $280M in trading volume to date. Cega’s vaults allow investors to earn high fixed yields during volatile market environments while providing strong protection against severe market downturns. The vaults utilize tailored options strategies to generate these higher yields with reduced risk.

The Future on Arbitrum

With the launch on Arbitrum, Cega is excited to bring its innovative and secure vault strategies to a community that prioritizes DeFi innovation.

“Our expansion into the growing Arbitrum ecosystem signifies a proud step forward for Cega in the DeFi ecosystem. Arbitrum’s strong DeFi community fosters a favorable environment for Cega to enter and bring foundational options capabilities as well as cutting-edge derivatives primitives. Cega’s products will help users on Arbitrum gain access to a new kind of return with a strong reward. We’re looking forward to providing Arbitrum users with access to safer, structured investments.” — Arisa Toyosaki, Co-founder and CEO of Cega.

Introducing the L2 Vault Strategy 💡

In celebration of our Arbitrum launch, we’re also introducing the L2 vault strategy, featuring ARB and OP tokens. Users stake USDC stablecoin to earn USDC yield with an estimated APY of up to 63% APY, downside protection of 50%, and strong backtesting results indicating a low probability (5% chance) to risk losses on invested principal. The L2 vault is a strong solution for those in the Arbitrum community seeking a diversified, risk-managed approach to earning high yields in DeFi while fundamentally supporting the growth of layer 2 blockchains. More information about the L2 vault can be found below.
