BarnBridge unveils application to maintain portfolio weightings of ERC-20 tokens

Decentralized finance protocol BarnBridge has introduced an application that allows users to automate position management between Ethereum-based assets.

On July 5, BarnBridge announced its second application, dubbed "SMART Exposure." The application enables users to passively maintain a particular weighting between the assets in a specific ERC-20 token pair through automatic rebalancing.

The application has been launched on the Ethereum mainnet with support for wrapped Ethereum (WETH), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), and USD Coin (USDC) in pairings weighted to 75/25 or 50/50 ratios. It will also be deployed on the Polygon Network in the coming weeks.

The protocol explained that the functionality is possible because SMART Exposure maintains its own asset pools.

Each exposure ratio is represented by a fungible ERC-20 token with its own ticker, allowing the positions to be traded on secondary markets, or potentially used as collateral in other protocols. BarnBridge stated:

“We expect SMART Exposure to serve as a key building block for structured products incorporating assets from other BarnBridge products in the future. Today, it offers an efficient passive treasury management solution as well as tokenized versions of popular ratios.”
