Use Cases

Autonomy can be used to do things in the future under a/some condition(s). They could be one-time actions, or recurring actions:

  • trading on AMMs like Uniswap

    • limit orders - executing a trade once the price has gone above/below a specific value

    • stop losses - market buy/sell once the price has gone above/below a specific value

    • exit liquidity positions to avoid impermanent loss when it becomes too great

  • sending a payment(s) that's recurring for a salary/subscription in a way that doesn't require you to deposit everything upfront, but rather gets taken out your wallet directly every month

  • automatically repaying/self-liquidating borrowed/leveraged positions to avoid high (12%+) liquidation fees on platforms like MakerDAO/Compound/Kashi etc. when you get close to the liquidation threshold

  • automatically moving liquidity between yield farms/lending platforms every time the yield becomes better elsewhere

  • make a contract fully autonomous, with legal rights and the ability to enact those rights off-chain, by setting it up with funds in a single transaction such that it can create its own transactions in the future, many times, based on its own decisions from arbitrary on-chain inputs

  • automatically manage a portfolio or a DAO's treasury funds

  • sending a transaction once the gas price is below some value

  • execute a given trading strategy, such as dollar cost averaging

  • execute a given LP strategy, such as being fully hedged like AutoHedge
