6 key points that make it unique

The easy automated decentralized trustless secure tokenized way to hedge your Bitcoin.

As easy as owning a token.

By owning a token ($BTTR) you can effortlessly automate the whole strategy.
Similar to ETF shares, but on-chain, you can always exchange your token for the belonging underlying assets at any time of your choosing.

Automated and decentralized.

Unleash the power of decentralization with smart contracts deployed on the Polygon blockchain.
No central authority needed. Equal access and interaction for all users. All swaps are public, executed through 0x.

Your keys, your coins.

You maintain sole possession of your tokens, never entrusting them to any external entities. No centralized exchange intermediaries are involved.
A trustless smart contract facilitates the strategy automation, with your explicit consent.

Built on top of the most secure protocol.

The Set Protocol is engineered to enable tokenized portfolio management with unparalleled security. Their audited contracts provide BetterThanHold the most robust infrastructure to meet the highest standards.

Don’t trust, verify.

That’s the foundational principle of both crypto and BetterThanHold. All contracts and swaps are made public. Being a non-custodial and trustless service ensures the utmost transparency, giving you the ability to verify all actions and transactions.

A 100% collateralized ERC20 token.

BTTR is minted by depositing the underlying assets onto the smart contract. BTTR is burned by withdrawing the underlying assets from the smart contract. As with all ERC20 tokens, BTTR can be traded, transferred, and securely stored.

Performance

Leave the guesswork behind. Get a clear picture with detailed performance data

BetterThanHold is a publicly available tool that aims to optimize returns of a Bitcoin investment through superior risk management.

The following interactive charts demonstrate the historical performance of the strategy in relation to Bitcoin, Ethereum, and traditional benchmarks such as the S&P 500 and Gold. Enabling you to simulate various investment approaches, providing a comprehensive understanding of how past performance would have been. Data accounts for real-world factors such as slippage and fees.

The rate of return on an investment if it were held for one year, expressed as a percentage. It makes it easy to compare returns from different investments or time frames. Similar to Annual Percentage Yield (APY) measured in USD.

The largest high point to low point decline, defined as the percentage. It is a measure of risk and volatility, as it indicates the maximum amount that could be lost during a specific period of time. It is used to assess the risk-adjusted performance, and to compare the risk of different investments.
x Better x Better x Better x Better
The Return Over Maximum Drawdown (ROMAD) ratio measures the profitability and risk of an investment or portfolio. A higher ratio indicates a higher return relative to the amount of risk capital required. It is used to compare investments or portfolios with industry standards.
The strategy has generated an impressive 73% annualized returns to date, outpacing nearly all other investment vehicles.
The key components of BetterThanHold’s approach include:
By adhering to these 3 core principles, the strategy allows you to capitalize on Bitcoin’s volatility while while protecting your stack value during price declines. This time-tested system has proven to be highly effective in maximizing returns.

The downside of the strategy. What you also need to know.

Like any investment, it has experienced periods of decline. By utilizing BetterThanHold, you may undergo periods of subpar performance and losses. However, it is specifically tailored for long-term investors, premised on the belief that a long-term investment horizon yields the most favorable results. Enduring short-term declines is key to achieving higher returns.

How to use it

A set & forget service. Yet keeping you in full control.

The BetterThanHold strategy is an advanced method of managing digital assets such as WBTC and USDC through the use of BTTR tokens.

The most user-friendly way to get BTTR tokens is to follow these 3 easy steps:

01
Set up your wallet.

Create a Metamask wallet now (it's free), add the Polygon network and fund it with some MATIC. Metamask serves as the ideal storage solution for your funds within the ecosystem.

02
Sign Up into TokenSets.

Interact with the BetterThanHold smart contract via the TokenSets UI. This interface allows for the execution of BTTR Buy/Sell operations, as well as the issuance/redemption of underlying assets. Additionally, it provides real-time access to BTTR pricing data, underlying token allocations, and your updated account balance.

03
Get your BTTR.

Proceed to Buy the desired quantity of $BTTR. This transaction will allocate the specified underlying assets into BTTR, resulting in the transfer of the corresponding amount of BTTR tokens directly to your Metamask wallet.
Don't forget to add the BTTR token to Metamask to view the updated balance.

The BTTR tokens are backed by the underlying assets, meaning if the assets go up or down in value, BTTR will do the same.

BTTR tokens act as a form of access to the smart contract’s management capabilities and serve as a medium of exchange within the contract. The underlying assets remain locked within the smart contract and can only be retrieved by the user upon the burning of the BTTR tokens, effectively relinquishing access to the smart contract’s management capabilities. This can be achieved with the Sell button within the TokenSets UI.

How it Works

Tokenomics. A technical deep dive.

User interacts with Metamask & TokenSets

The best-in-class framework to manage a tokenized strategy.

In order to utilize BetterThanHold, users must employ a digital wallet such as Metamask, to store their tokens and interact with the BetterThanHold smart contract on the Polygon blockchain. They can access the smart contract functions through the TokenSets user interface or by directly calling the smart contract functions. Both the user interface and smart contract structure are provided by TokenSets.com (Set Labs Inc.), which offers a secure framework.

A smart contract securing a completely collateralized system.

Users can call two functions:

Issue

Where users send tokens to the smart contract. The contract then creates a corresponding amount of BTTR tokens based on current underlying token reserves and BTTR token supply. The newly created BTTR tokens are then sent to the user.

Redeem

Where users send BTTR tokens to the smart contract. The contract then returns the user a corresponding amount of underlying tokens based on current underlying token reserves and BTTR token supply. The sent BTTR tokens are burned.

Issue & Redeem functions

This process of creating and burning BTTR tokens ensures that there is a direct relationship between the number of BTTR tokens in circulation and the amount of underlying tokens held by the smart contract. This results in a fully collateralized system where there is no token sale and users are only able to exchange their underlying tokens for BTTR tokens, and vice versa.

Transparent swapping with unmatched efficiency.

The smart contract can only accept instructions to swap underlying tokens from BetterThanHold’s private addresses. These swap orders are public and follow the strategy outlined on the website.

This swapping capability allows the underlying token value to fluctuate, which is the sole factor that impacts the BTTR token price.

Smart Contract
0x aggregated trade

Swaps are executed through the 0x aggregator, which splits the trade across multiple decentralized exchanges for optimal execution and pricing.

Non-custodial. Decentralized. 100% Automated.

BTTR tokens allow BetterThanHold to be non-custodial, meaning BetterThanHold does not hold on to users tokens, but instead operate via automated functions that promote decentralization and fairness. With BetterThanHold, users remain in control of their assets by receiving BTTR tokens in return for providing tokens like WBTC to the smart contract, which is managed by code and not by human operation. BTTR tokens represent a user share of the underlying tokens held in the smart contract, and users remain entirely in control of the token.
