A brief intro to CIAN

CIAN is a decentralized automation platform that helps users onboard complex crypto delta-neutral yield strategies in one simple transaction.
The platform allows users to build, manage, and optimize multi-protocol strategies with their cryptocurrencies while benefiting from various automation features that constantly monitor and protect users' positions against liquidation risks. CIAN is primarily focused on yield opportunities for or from Liquid Staking Tokens (LST, also known as LSD), Liquid Restaking Tokens (LRT), and Real-World Assets (RWA).
Users holding standard cryptocurrencies such as ETH, AVAX, or Matic might wonder; CIAN allows users to earn more from LST/LRT/RWA, but what exactly are those, and how does it relate to me?
Liquid staking is a new way to earn passive income from staking assets without locking them up. It is an alternative to traditional staking, which requires users to lock up their tokens to contribute to the security of proof of stake blockchains. As an example, if you hold ETH, you may instead get Lido’s stETH to earn a passive yield while conserving the same price value. Liquid restaking, as the name suggests, this alternative shares a lot of similarities with liquid staking although the core mechanisms vary. (see EigenLayer for more information) Real-World assets are digital tokens that represent physical and traditional financial assets, such as currencies, commodities, equities, and bonds.
All ready-made strategies are designed to help users maximize their returns while minimizing their risks, making them an ideal tool for both novice and experienced investors.
