Bottomline

Ribbon Finance’s automated strategy helps retail investors to invest in complicated crypto derivatives products. Its automated strategy allows them to earn high yields on Bitcoin, Ether, etc. The crypto market is set to see more complex financial products in future, with new structured DeFi products evolving. However, the crypto market is highly volatile and complex; hence, investors should apply due diligence before investing in the market.
