Basics of Sharpe Earn

How does Sharpe Earn work

Sharpe Earn is a decentralized asset management platform that allows you to earn yields in DeFi while maintaining full control and custody of your funds. Here's what you need to know to get started:


Sharpe Earn is not a traditional vault or custodial platform. Instead, it creates "Smart Accounts" or "DeFi Managed Accounts" within your non-custodial wallet (like MetaMask, Ledger, or Coinbase Wallet). These Smart Accounts interact with various DeFi protocols, executing strategies and managing your positions, all while keeping your funds in your wallet at all times.


  1. Connect Your Wallet: The first step is to connect your non-custodial wallet (like MetaMask, Ledger, or Coinbase Wallet) to the Sharpe Earn platform.

  2. Create a Smart Account: Once your wallet is connected, you can create a "Smart Account" or "DeFi Managed Account" within your wallet. This Smart Account acts like your personal vault, but you maintain full control and custody of your funds.

  3. Select a Strategy and Chain: Sharpe Earn offers a wide range of strategies across multiple blockchain networks. Browse through the available strategies and select the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk appetite. Choose the blockchain network (e.g., Base, Optimism, Arbitrum) where you want to deploy Earn strategy.

  4. Invest and Earn Yields: After selecting your desired strategy, you can invest your funds directly from your wallet. Sharpe Earn's Smart Account will execute the strategy on your behalf, interacting with the appropriate DeFi protocols to manage your positions and earn yields. You can adjust your investment amount and leverage based on your risk appetite and desired exposure.

Throughout this process, your funds never leave your wallet. Sharpe Earn's Smart Accounts act as a middleware, executing the strategies and managing your positions while you maintain complete control and ownership of your assets.

By following these steps, you can leverage Sharpe Earn's innovative approach to DeFi asset management, earning yields while enjoying the security and self-custody of your non-custodial wallet.
