Who is karpatkey?

karpatkey is a DeFi-native organisation specialising in professional DAO finance through industry-leading research and tooling since 2020. We’ve been working with Balancer, CoW Protocol, ENS, GnosisDAO, and Lido on financial planning, operations, and strategy, diversifying their treasuries into sustainable portfolios of DeFi investments designed to support DAOs in executing their missions.

We believe in the world’s transition into trust-minimised, permissionless, and composable capital markets built on public networks and open-source software. DeFi will reshape the structure of modern finance, and we want to accelerate this by bridging both worlds.

Why karpatkey

karpatkey’s governance team taps our network of engineers, DeFi strategists, data/financial/quant analysts, and accountants for subject matter expertise. As DAO treasury developers and contributors to some of our industry’s most reputable DeFi protocols, our team has the knowledge, trust, and alignment to contribute to Balancer’s growth moving forward. Check out our values to understand our guiding and decision-making principles.

We take pride in differentiating ourselves by being a hands-on delegate, leveraging our unique position in assembling a DeFi block of DAOs with similar values.

Our contributions to Balancer

We are actively contributing to Balancer as a Treasury Manager, and currently have over $36M worth of LP positions on Balancer on behalf of the Treasuries we manage.

In addition to our work as Treasury Manager, we have a proven track record of familiarity with the Balancer governance process. We’ve authored and submitted several BIPs and external DAO proposals, all strategically beneficial to the Balancer ecosystem.


Other Contributions.

  • We authored an [AIP-352] on AAVE Governance to build an aligned long-term strategic positioning of the Aave DAO within Balancer. This proposal made Balancer the primary liquidity pools for GHO, and established AAVE as an important supporter of the Balancer Ecosystem.
  • We have published several financial reports as Balancer DAO’s Treasury Manager. See our most recent report on reports.karpatkey.com.


We currently serve the Balancer DAO as Treasury Managers. We also contribute to other DeFi DAOs with similar roles, other finance-related services, and as Delegates.
