Who We Are:
Ethena Labs is building the first ETH based delta-neutral stablecoin. Arthur Hayes is a founding advisor and the team has deep experience across traditional finance and crypto engineering from firms such as Cerberus, Wintermute, Aave, Blockdaemon and Kaiko.

What we are Doing:
We are building derivative infrastructure to enable Ethereum to transform into the Global Internet Bond via delta-neutral derivatives positions, to create the first crypto-native, yield bearing stablecoin: USDe.
We believe creating a stablecoin which is not reliant on existing banking infrastructure is the single most important product in crypto today.
USDe will form the first part of a broader ecosystem of products we are building including money markets, and internal trade matching between product lines.
