What is Yearn Finance?

YFI Yearn Finance yieldfarming

Yearn Finance is a suite of products in Decentralized Finance (DeFi) that provides lending aggregation, yield generation, and insurance on the Ethereum blockchain. The protocol is maintained by various independent developers and is governed by YFI holders.

It started out as a passion project by Andre Cronje to automate the process of switching capital between lending platforms in search of the best yield offered, as the lending yield is a floating rate rather than fixed rate. Funds are shifted between dYdX, AAVE, and Compound automatically as interest rates change between these protocols. 

The service offered includes major USD tokens such as DAI, USDT, USDC, and TUSD. For example, if a user deposits DAI into yearn.finance, the user will receive yDAI token in return, which is a yield-bearing DAI token. 

Later on, it collaborated with Curve Finance to release a yield-bearing USD tokens pool that includes four y-tokens: yDAI, yUSDT, yUSDC and yTUSD, it is named as yUSD

Yearn Finance debuted the vault feature after its token launch, igniting a frenzy on automated yield farming and is considered the initiator of the category of yield farming aggregator. Basically, the vault will help users to claim yield farming rewards and sell it for the underlying assets. 

Vaults benefit users by socializing gas costs, automating the yield generation and rebalancing process, and automatically shifting capital as opportunities arise. End users also do not need to have proficient knowledge of the underlying protocols involved or DeFi, thus the Vaults represent a passive-investing strategy. It is akin to a crypto hedge fund where the aim is to increase the amount of assets that users deposited.

Yearn Finance in 2021

Yearn Finance was launched in July 2020 and its governance token, YFI was released to the community through a fair launch. At its initial release, because there were no fundraising nor valuation placed on Yearn Finance, the market did not fully comprehend the value capture and not able to figure out the market value for it.

As Yearn Finance continued to attract liquidity by allowing people to easily earn and participate in DeFi, YFI token went from $30 to $43,000 within 2 months from its launch.

In 2021, Yearn Finance continues to solidify its position as the gold standard for yield aggregator in which it managed to hit an all-time high of $91,000 on May 12th, 2021 alongside with the peak of the cryptocurrency markets.

What is Yield Farming and Delegated Vaults?

Yield Farming refers to the activity of depositing and locking capital in a DeFi Protocol for the reward of the protocol’s native tokens. DeFi protocols need to bootstrap capital to provide liquidity for exchanges, lend to borrowers, underwrite insurance risk, etc. It acts as an incentive to attract users to use the protocol while generating hype, giving out part of its native tokens. 

Other than simple yield farming, Yearn Finance also released a product named delegated vault. Delegated vaults basically use any assets as collateral to borrow stablecoins and recycle the stablecoins into a stablecoin vault. Any subsequent earnings are then used to buy back the asset. 

For example, one of the delegated vaults is yETH, where users can deposit ETH and expect to have more ETH when they withdraw. The ETH is sent to Maker DAO as collateral in order to draw DAI where the DAI will be invested into the DAI vault, with subsequent earnings used to buy back ETH. 

Why is the founder, Andre Cronje controversial or famous? 

YFI Andre Cronje Yearn Finance

Andre became one of the most famous DeFi thought leaders as he launched Yearn Finance single-handedly, witnessing YFI price went up by roughly 55x in less than 3 months, valuing Yearn Finance by more than $1 billion. He is vocal on Twitter with his ethos of fair token launch and having a bias on launching experimental projects before audits, which gave birth to one of the DeFi main activities “Aping”. 

Aping basically means buying the tokens the moment it launches in Ethereum mainnet before fully knowing the function of the tokens. It normally involves directly interacting with the Ethereum contract before a website UI is out or buying it straight from DEX such as Uniswap. It is a high risk activity, causing many investors to lose their fund to scams. But the lure of getting early access to tokens that might go up rapidly in price is attracting tons of speculators. 

One of the examples is when Andre launched EMN, a game economy engine called “Eminence” that was subsequently hacked for $15 million. Subsequent launch of the KP3R token, a network that facilitates keepers to perform automated tasks on behalf of requestors, saw the price go up by 22x in less than 3 months, valuing KP3R at more than $100 million. The activity of aping will not die down anytime soon with numerous projects achieving high valuation within a short span of time.
