Anybody knows if anyone has researched how would liquidity pools and impermanent loss look like on pools with more than 2 tokens ?
X*y*z = k ?
I think it could be a multi variable math nightmare, but I wonder if it would offer opportunities in any way …

Yeah I think there’s calculators out there for Balancer, Curve, and GLP pools that feature multi-token LPs. They should be pretty easy to look up.
There are some simulators that can calculate it. It really depends on the assets though. 3 or 4 different assets likely are pretty uncorrelated so the IL risk could be greater if one or two of them really start to deviate in price from the others
It’s (x bal *weight) * (y bal *weight) * (z bal *weight) = k
It acts similar to off weight pools like balancer 30/70 pools.
Higher price impact than a 50/50 with the same total liquidity but pretty near price impact of 50/50 where the same liquidity of that individual asset in the pool (more total liquidity)
I found them
Curve has been testing that for a while now.
