Gro protocol is a stablecoin yield aggregator that tranches risk and yield. The first two products built on it are the PWRD stablecoin with deposit protection and yield, and Vault with leveraged stablecoin yields.
The protocol delivers the best DeFi yield by continuously optimising a range of market neutral yield strategies, including lending income, trading fees from Automated Market Makers, and protocol incentive farming. What makes it unique is the Gro Risk Balancer, a novel risk tranching module that distributes smart contract and stablecoin risk in a targeted way.
Initially the protocol is launching two risk- and yield-tranched products: the PWRD stablecoin and the Vault. All deposits are algorithmically and non-custodially allocated to a set of strategies. Depositors into the Vault receive a higher proportion of system yields but also take on extra smart contract and stable coin risk. Inversely, the PWRD stablecoin receives a smaller portion of the system yield but is protected against these risks.
Whether you're an experienced risk-on degen or new to DeFi and amazed by its bountiful yields, Gro protocol aims to offer something for you.

With interest rates at record lows and people sometimes even having to pay banks to take their deposits, there is a huge demand for returns. Many have turned to cryptocurrencies to speculate on price increases — but a new movement offers compelling returns without the volatility that cryptocurrencies are known for.
Decentralised Finance (DeFi) lets people use digitized pounds and dollars to profit from emerging financial services, without betting on the price of bitcoin. DeFi is reinventing traditional financial services like lending, trading and insurance as open and transparent protocols. Protocols allow for faster innovation and permissionless integration which drive efficiencies that ultimately deliver more value to people. But DeFi still requires technical expertise and has become exclusionary as a result.
Gro is building products for people to have simple and friendly access to DeFi.
