Access to risk-managed, multi chain strategies powered by off-chain computation

Why Sommelier

Cosmos Stargate SDK

Off Chain Computation

Innovative hybrid architecture allows powerful off chain machine learning models to safely control the cellars providing best yields and risk management.

Automated Portfolio Rebalancing

Automatically rebalance portfolio to focus on high yield Liquidity Provider opportunities and exit lower yielding opportunities

Lower Ethereum Gas Transaction Fees

Aggregating and batching transactions with Sommelier will yield lower gas prices for LP growing demand to manage pool position and performance

Greater Liquidity Momentum

Native transaction batching and roll-ups deliver greater liquidity momentum to capture onchain yield on the Ethereum blockchain


Sommelier is built on the Cosmos SDK to maximize interoperability with other blockchains, and the platform is a reimagined gateway into interchain DeFi. With a bridge in place connecting the Cosmos-based platform to Ethereum, Sommelier will be able to execute strategies across multiple blockchains, opening a wide horizon of possibilities

Traditional Finance has come to rely on the power of off-chain computation, since it allows their strategies to be proprietary and include the work of highly sophisticated data modeling, machine learning models which would be impossible to do On-chain. Sommelier aims to do all of this but without the tradeoff of centralization that exists in traditional finance thanks to its Validator Set.
