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.
Simulate: Investing USD
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 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.
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:
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.
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:
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.
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.
