Multi-chain limbo and farming as the new trading

Our story begins in frenetic 2021, where apart from massive growth and people buying meme stocks and coins, DeFi has opened the opportunity to be exposed to the rapidly appreciating and highly volatile assets while mainting USD-protected positions. Something that simply wasn't there the previous bull run is here — you can deposit USDT in a decentralized protocol and get incentivized revenue of 30 or 40% APY.

It might be the golden era of DeFi protocols as major players’ smart contracts have been mostly de-risked yet the yeilds are still easily 10x…

We’ve come a long wave from our initial concept of a multi-chain capital “moving company” that would allow to move assets through (any) number of farms or accounts across blockchains.

We decided the best starting point would be porting the hottest DeFi farms to other blockchains (or better: giving those blockchains liquidity exposure to these farms, no matter how small the initial investment was) and enabling cross-chain IDOs. We also updated the logic of the system as we progressed.

Our ultimate goal is to make you “forget” what chain you’re using and minimize the super user-unfriendly metamask network switching and…

So it turns out that profitable farming is getting so much harder with the market downturn. You look around for more profitable farms, but can you do without the endless swap/bridge/swap/deposit/harvest steps?

Remember how they always say you should put your capital to work? Hence the “work and travel” meme — we want you to put your capital to work and make it travel with a single button (o.k. a couple of buttons).

Newer DeFi protocols incentivize users and LP providers heavily, but most of these platforms live on newer and sexier blockchains, and you usually have to be early…

We planned for Ariadne to be a cross-chain facilitator (not at start, but at v.3.0), so how do we achieve it and how will the token be used?

So, we want to jump (err, ape) from something into something. LPs to farms, for example, across blockchains. Suppose we heard there’s an excellent yield that incentivized by a L2 provider or some new degen hotness, we want to remove all “boomer liquidity” from an older system and jump to the new one.

To ensure cross-chain operation Ariadne will build an isolated environment for the off-chain oracles (or guardians) where they will…
