About Tranchess

Tranchess is a yield farming protocol that was inspired by tranche funds’ ability to provide different risk-return options. Similarly, Tranchess offers assets with different risk/return matrices out of a single main fund that tracks a specific underlying asset – currently BTC, ETH, and BNB. 

Launched in June 2021, Tranchess has amassed a total value locked (TVL) of $437.5m as of 6 May 2022 and is currently only available on the BNB chain.
