Neuron Fund is an innovative on-chain derivatives DeFi protocol that has two products at the start: multicollateralized Neuron Options for more profitable options trading (every covered short position can gain yield) and Neuron Pools running an automated options trading strategy.
Neuron Pools enhance capital efficiency and yield in DeFi by running automated derivative strategies on a vast range of assets, including users’ often idle Curve liquidity pool deposits. In simple terms, option pool APY summarizes liquidity yield in Curve and option selling yield.
For options traders, Neuron offers a flexible choice of collateral for gaining yield on every short position.
For Neuron Pools depositors, the Curve pool can be chosen in alpha-generating option strategies. The yield is summarized as Pool users can use their liquidity deposits as collaterals.
We do have such plans and will definitely keep everyone updated 🚀
There is also a slim chance that the price of NEUR goes to 0. However, that's hugely offset by our tokenomics' incentivization mechanisms and providing AMM liquidity. And, as always:
That's likely not possible - if we were just talking about auto-compounding the liquidity pool for increased rewards, sure. But Neuron pools take capital efficiency to virtually another level: minting option contracts on liquidity pool deposits and automatically using yield-bearing tokens as the collateral is not feasible due to know-how, fees - the whole nine yards.

At Neuron, options contracts (in the form of Neuron Option tokens, noTokens) will be sold via an open batch auction, so everyone is invited.
