Is Essentia a Low Cap Hidden Gem? Yield Farming, DeFi & Interoperability

Welcome to Watch Crypto! In this video, Voskcoin talks about Essentia.

Essentia.one is a masternode powered blockchain that enables interoperability and cross-chain transactions. It is an ‘all-in-one platform’ that manages all things crypto. With Essentia users can: trade, swap, and add liquidity. Integrated with L2 transactions via zk-SNARKs sdk and Starkwave - Essentia is designed to be simple, secure, and most importantly decentralized.

Yield Farming Ess Tokens:

If you are new to yield farming please watch the video above. The video shows an example of how to use Uniswap to get the LP (liquidity pool) tokens and stake them into the ESS/ETH pool on Unicrypt. Here are the steps if you are looking to participate in yield farming Essentia to earn passive income.

  1. Have an equal value of ESS tokens and Ethereum coins in your wallet. You can 'trade' to achieve this here.
  2. Once you have both sides of the pool from your trade/swap in step 1. you can 'add liquidity' by clicking the add liquidity here.
  3. Once your transaction has confirmed you will have LP tokens. LP tokens represent your stake in the pool. The amount of ESS and ETH tokens will rebalance within your LP token holdings. The LP amount will stay the same but due to impermanent loss there will be a rebalancing of tokens. For example if one of the assets outperforms the other, there will be slightly less of the outperforming token and more of the less performing token, This is due to arbitrage.
  4. Go to the ESS/ETH farm on Unicrypt here. You need to 'stake' your LP tokens here in order to start farming ESS and earning the rewards.
  5. When you are done farming you can remove your LP tokens and 'harvest' your ESS tokens. The amount of ESS tokens you farmed will be added to your wallet. Be sure to add ESS token to your wallet to see the balance.
  6. You will also need to sell your LP tokens, you can do this again using Uniswap.

Benchmark Protocol launches New Rebasing Token W/ Staking & DeFi Farming

Benchmark Protocol launches New Rebasing Token W/ Staking & DeFi Farming | by Voskcoin

Benchmark Protocol launched their MARK token, a crypto DeFi token on Ethereum made that you can stake, liquidity mine, and yield farm AND it's a rebasing token?! Let's review MARK token! View more from Voskcoin.

Benchmark Protocol is a supply elastic collateral and hedging device that revolves around the volatility index and their DeFi crypto token MARK which allows for staking, governance voting, and yield farming via their incentivized liquidity pools!

MARK tokens rebase, similar to Ampleforth and Yam Finance, however, MARK tokens are not pegged to the US dollar, Benchmark MARK tokens augment supply based on the Special Drawing Rights SDR which is a composite international reserve asset comprised of the US dollar, Euro, Great British Pound, Chinese Yuan, and the Japanese Yen.

So let's review Benchmark Protocol and if their MARK tokens will allow them to standout in this cryptocurrency bullrun largely revolving around decentralized finance!

Stabilize STBZ Protocol CryptoCurrency | A top DEFI pick for 2021?

Stabilize STBZ Protocol CryptoCurrency | A top DEFI pick for 2021?

The Stabilize Protocol is a defi application designed to help keep stablecoins and BTC proxy tokens prices stable. This is done by incentivizing depositors with STBZ tokensand by using active strategies to balance coin demand. Users have the option to swap pools manually to achieve a higher rate of reward or deposit into the active strategies that swap tokens on their behalf.

At the time of posting on Jan 02 2021 STBZ had the following stats. STBZ is up 200% over the past 30 day period.

Stabilize Price $5.36
Market Cap $1,803,153
Market Cap Dominance 0.00%
Trading Volume $713,850
Volume / Market Cap 0.3959
24h Low / 24h High $4.75 / $5.91
7d Low / 7d High $2.70 / $7.44
Market Cap Rank #890

Looking to earn passive income through yield farming?

Stabilize.Finance has a 50/50 eth-stbz-LP pair which you can find on Uniswap. In order to participate, you must provide 50% ETH and 50% STBZ tokens into the LP pair.

stabilize stbz eth pool yield farming

Step 1. You first need to have equal amounts of ETH to STBZ in your wallet. I use MetaMask browser extension. You then add liquidity on uniswap.

Step 2. When you have confiremd the transactions and they are confirmed on the network your metamask wallet will have the LP tokens in it. You will now be able to 'MAX IN' to deposit the liquidity into the pool. Once you do this you will beign collecting rewards.

The amount displayed in the screeen above (64 LP) is about .7% of the pool size. First got into it a few months ago with about 32 LP and just added the other 32 LP 2 days ago.

Step 3. You can 'claim stbz' at any time. I just did it a few days ago which is why the STBZ earned started back at 0.

Until Sept 2021 there will be 16885 tokens rewarded each week. After this point the community can vote on how the coins are further distributed.. It could be increased, stay the same, or decreased.

By providing liquidity you are rewarded in stbz tokens.

In the example above .7% of the pool is rewarding this wallet with about 116 stbz tokens/week. Which is a value of $2500/month to provide not very much liquidity.

Progression of Stabilize.Finance

The team behind Stabilize is rewarded just 1% of the coins minted in the first year. Coins minted after the first year are rewarded to token holders, liquidity providers, and users of the Stabilize Protocol.

With Stabilize starting just a few months ago, the project has developed nicely. New features are being added and a strong community is being developed around the project.

Stabilize is a DEFI project that has huge potential going into 2021.

Velo Token VLO | Could this velocity coin be the Next BIG DEFI TOKEN?

Velo Token [$VLO] | Value of Velocity Digital Asset

The first Austrian economic experiment in DeFi based on real economic value. An anonymous team of crypto users that goes by the alias of 'Super Mises' (similar to that of Satoshi Nakomoto) has released a yield farming platform the uses the latest in DeFi trends. Taking a page from both Yam and Ampleforth Velotoken.fi is a platform that enables yield farming reward incentives and the rebasing of cryptocurrencies. VELO token (VLO) is an experiment in the 'value of velocity'.

**Please be aware that there are now 2 tokens that go by 'VELO' token. If you intend on using one or the other please be aware of this so that you don't use a wrong address or use the wrong one for your specific purpose.

  • 1. VELO Token (VLO) - https://velotoken.fi/. This is the value of velocity, yield farming, governance token. This is the one this article is about.
  • 2. Velo (VELO) - https://velo.org/. This is a financial protocol for businesses. It enables digital credit issuance and borderless asset transfer through smart contracts.

Velo Token VLO

VELO Token ($VLO)

The newly launched VELO token ($VLO) will serve as a financial experimentation tool as well as the governance token for the Velotoken DAO.

The VELO token can be farmed on Velotoken.fi starting November 4th, 2020 until December 2nd, 2020. The VELO token is capped at a supply of 100M. Once the farming period has ended, no more $VLO tokens will be minted/released.

100% of the 100M tokens are allocated to yield farming participation, allowing for a fair token distribution.

The VELO token will be the first currency in history that rebases its supply not based on
price but based on its own velocity. Once all tokens are farmed, the total supply of VELO
token will only increase or decrease in inverse relation to its own velocity, but will never be
more than 100M in circulation.

The outcome of this experiment cannot be predicted. The experiment is in the hands of
the token holders and the community. It is up to the community members to play an active part in finding use cases and defining the future of VLO token.

The VELO token protocol uses the governance protocol from Compound, the incentive
mechanism from Yam and the rebasing functionalities from Ampleforth. A unique set of
trusted contracts with a completely new spin.
Fair Farming and Elasticity
Multiple economic theories are put to the test in decentralized finance.
Rebasing stable currencies have the potential to bring price stability to unstable digital assets in Defi.
At the core of the VeloToken project lies the core of economic value, the more a currency is used, the more value it produces.
Velocity in the “real economy” is measured by combining historical data and speculations about the future. A measurement that has not been able to occur in real-time until now.In decentralized finance, one can simply observe the amount of on-chain transactions of any cryptocurrency and calculate the velocity in real-time. With this, smart contracts can be used to calculate velocity to make changes in the currency's supply.

Velotoken is the first protocol that synthesizes velocity into a cryptocurrency.
Velotoken is the first currency that has a direct relationship with its own velocity.

What is Deflationary Farming | How Deflationary Yield Farming Works

What is Deflationary Farming | How Deflationary Yield Farming Works

Yield farming has an inherently bad characteristic. You are putting down capital to earn something that you and all the others like you intend to sell. This means there is likely to be higher demand in the short run and sell-offs as time progresses. This destroys the value of the underlying token, do to inflating the supply.

There is a solution to this madness! and its called Deflationary Farming. For deflationary farming, there must be 1. a fee charged on token transfers, and 2. users can earn fees when they farm. This allows those who farm to do so without infinite inflation.

By having a fixed supply that cannot be added to and having unstakeable farms, yield farms cVault.Finance has created the first deflationary yield farming farms in the defi space.

The rewards given to farmers in cVault.Finance are paid out in Core tokens. The core tokens used for rewards are made available by cVault Finance ferm buying them from Uniswap and given to the farmers.

How to Use cVault Finance and earn Core Token

How to Use cVault Finance and earn Core Token

Welcome to this video posted by King of Fomo, in this video you will learn about cVault.finance and how you can earn Core Token by yield farming.

What is Core Finance?

Basically, it is a farming token, with a few twists. Most farming platforms are a copy and paste with minor changes of an existing platform such as Uniswap. Core Finance which is already over 10 million in total liquidity is still considered a low cap coin. The total supply of Core Token is just 10,000.

When you are farming Core Tokens you cannot remove your staked coins. This is unique as most other farms being yielded are ones where you can unstake your liquidity (Core-ETH pair for example).

CoreVault is the first high yield farmable deflationary DeFi token. With most liquidity farming pools the farmers are farming, they have to mint constantly new coins to generate returns. This causes the coin to become less valuable and they have too much sell pressure to keep the value from dropping.

The solution by Core Finance is called deflationary farming, it requires to very simple steps:

  1. Charge fees on transferring tokens
  2. Users can earn fees through farming

From this; token holders are able to farm without infinite inflation.

How to buy Core Token

Step 1

Go to https://cvault.finance/ and click on 'Wallet' then in the Core area click on 'Get'

This will bring you to Uniswap where you can swap to receive Core tokens.

Buy core tokens on uniswap

Step 2

Once you have your Core tokens you will need to create the liquidity pair with Eth coins and 'supply' them to the pool.

Get core weth using uniswap

Playing Minesweeper on cVault.finance

You may notice that the cVault finance website looks like an early version of windows operating system. You can click the start button in the bottom left and a menu will pop up with the option to play Minesweeper - the unforgiving classic desktop game that ends when you click a mine.

Best yield farming optimizer to use for the most gains (YFO)

Best yield farming optimizer to use for the most gains (YFO)

In 2020, no ‘pure’ crypto enthusiast can insist that they have successfully ignored the lush idea of yield farming totally. Since Compound made its mark in the decentralized finance (DeFi) hustle with the COMP governance token, crypto users have swarmed towards developing new and ingenious strategies to generate the most yield from their token investments. This move effectively shows how long it’s been since the Initial Coin Offering boom was all that mattered in the crypto space. 

One of those bright ideas put forward was by Andre Cronje, whose design philosophy mapped the creation of the now-famous YFI. To put YFI’s achievement in a sentence, YFI amassed its fanbase when it achieved 2000% APR, and it managed to hold a 100+% APR return rate for quite a while before newer models and strategies grabbed their own share of the limelight.

Using the idea as a base model, many experts are in their workshops redesigning what is now popularly known as a yield farming optimizer (YFO). The YFO is essentially a yield farming protocol created to maximize profit by shifting invested digital assets around in target circles to provide a level of liquidity that provides the highest paying yield opportunities. 

A perfect example of such a successful redesign is JFI by the Justpool finance team. The team deployed JFI as the yield farming optimizer on the Tron platform with numerous pools on JustSwap, to begin with. The change led to an increase in net profit and reduced gas fees for participation in the liquidity provision on the JustSwap platform.

We can see the purpose of a yield farming optimizer in two points:

  • First, there’s a baiting fee termed ‘trading fees’ that the platform can now employ to draw in liquidity providers. This incentive favors both the system leaders and liquidity providers.
  • JFI staking can then become executable on as many as 21,000 tokens to achieve an exponential return on profit as liquidity factors in. Of course, this comes along with voting and governance rights to widen the scope of Defi yield farming on the JustPool finance platform.

In their system, the community oversees governing the $JFI, and the rules are set so that token earnings can only be through mining as there are no plans for ICOs, and pre-mines are also out of the equation. Other system governors might want to keep a hold on some of their tokens, but claiming to open the total number of tokens to the community has proven to be the fastest way to draw liquidity catalysts in. 

The $JFI yield farming pools have also been set to be mined in as little as 10 weeks. The strategy is to mine three pools that contain an equal number of tokens (7000 each) weekly, with half to be mined in the first week, before an estimation on the half of that number is mined in the following week. The progression continues with half of the present week mined in the next until the ten weeks are over. Subsequently, the team will share the liquidity stakes as a reward to all miners in each pool.

The execution of a yield farming optimizer such as this provides interesting insight towards the future of DeFi. After all, an increase in the probability of earning profit is always welcome, and where the profit yield grows, is where you’ll see liquidity investors.

Understanding Impermanent Loss + Use This IPL Calculator

Understanding Impermanent Loss + Use This IPL Calculator

The best way to understand Impermanent Loss is to put your numbers into an actual IPL calculator. By using an impermanent loss calculator you can plan ahead and see what your shift in tokens might be in the pools you plan on providing liquidity too.

DefiYield.Info has an advanced IPL calculator you can use here.

Thank you to Ceazor's Snack Sandwich on YouTube for creating this helpful video content.

Impermanent Loss - Intro

Imagine our shock when we discovered that processing liquidity doesn't mean a guaranteed future as we watched millions of staked tokens lose value before our very eyes. It seemed better with the old technique where we just held our tokens. But understanding the unfazed advent of the automated market maker (AMM) technology plays a significant role in helping to overcome 'impermanent loss' (the term used to define the risk that DeFi's many liquidity providers run every time they try out a basic buy-and-hold strategy).

In order to get the way to circumvent this risk, we must first know the enemy. So, what is Impermanent loss?

What is Impermanent Loss?

Impermanent loss is the degree of deviation between the token value in an AMM and the value of a token kept in a wallet. The rather optimistic 'impermanent' part of its name is simply to acknowledge the rare possibility that the relative token prices in an AMM will go back to their initial state (the value when you placed the token will then replace the loss and you even get 100% of the trading fees in addition). 

The sky is not that blue, however, and that's why liquidity providers often lose their capital in that process, in addition to negative returns on the investment.

What Causes Impermanent Loss?

The roots of Impermanent loss are the arbitrageurs. It is common knowledge that AMMs are not bound by fluctuating market rates. However, changes in token prices still reflect in the disconnected AMMs. So, how does that happen? 

It turns out that arbitrageurs manually adjust AMM prices by purchasing underperforming assets or selling the overpriced ones until the AMM prices reflect the external market prices. Not seeing how that relates to impermanent loss? Well, that's because arbitrageurs customarily choose to make their profits from the invested assets of liquidity providers. That shortage is called impermanent loss. 

How to Mitigate Impermanent Loss

To avoid impermanent loss, the more advanced traders have taken to keeping hawk eyes on any flux in AMM prices, with their intentions clearly geared towards avoiding losses. Of course, there are less hectic ways to inhibit impermanent loss. One is to regulate the price divergence.

If the token price difference between pieces in the AMM and the external market is the driver for impermanent loss, then minimizing that widening gap is crucial to relaxing the risk of impermanent loss. 

As long as AMM tokens don't run out of commission and the relative prices of both external market tokens and AMM tokens remain consistent with each other, there's no need for arbitrageurs in the equation. Liquidity providers can then start thinking about earning money from their trading fees. To prove that theory, tokens that retain a consistent price range (with respect to the external market mirror assets) always turn out to be an effective repellent for impermanent loss. Of course, these systems need to be appropriately optimized for the profit of the liquidity providers. 

This means that providers must always withhold an amount designated to be a 'backup asset' when they're thinking of investing liquidity in synthetic tokens and stable coins. Many developers have created Chainlink price oracle integrations to peg reserves for liquidity providers and maintain the AMM token price in stasis. They only change with respect to the external market prices flux based on the readings of the oracles, which means bye to the arbitrageurs. 

By using such a design, liquidity providers can fearlessly invest in volatile tokens again without fear of impermanent loss, just as much as they would with stable tokens. And this rules out the defensive move of holding synthetic assets when one would otherwise stake, which can even be a 100% liquidity provision for token exposure in AMM. 

Bottom Line

As long as the problem of impermanent loss is mitigated, liquidity provision in AMMs can relaunch towards its true potential. On that foundation and through investors with the latent capital to actually make it a passive market, the newly improved and risk-minimized AMMs can now truly become the biggest answer to catalyzing the growth of decentralized liquidity.

Yield Farming Defi Insights for Beginners

Yield Farming Defi Insights for Beginners

Agricultural yield refers to the amount of food harvested. Likewise, followers of the DeFi movement have created the term “yield farming” to refer to a similarly exponential growth of interest on a foundational cryptocurrency stash. These yields come about when assets like USDT, USDC, and Dai are utilized on a DeFi platform such as Compound.

The introduction of a distribution system for the COMP governance token by Compound has further blown up the relatively new yield farming space, completely transformed the field of DeFi, and definitively made Compound the biggest DeFi project. The COMP token is now by far the most valuable DeFi token owing to the swift and massive migration of traders to the Compound platform for COMP “farming.”

Yield farming is this year’s most significant “discovery” in DeFi. It has caused several crypto enthusiasts to shift their focus to yield farming activities via DeFi projects like Sythetix, Balancer, and Curve. However, the ideas surrounding yield farming are not entirely new, but the sudden widespread realization and interest in them definitely is. 

For better understanding, let’s delve deeper into some of the hottest yield farming tokens and trends.

COMP Farming

The Compound platform is providing a four-year “liquidity mining” offer for liquidity providers. The aim is to reward all borrowers and suppliers of assets on the platform via a proportionate allotment of COMP within this period, with 2,880 tokens allocated daily. This new approach is drawing in a lot of traders who are transferring their crypto assets to the platform to yield-farm COMP allocations. 

Furthermore, some other DeFi projects are also promoting COMP yield farming in various ways. For instance, InstaDApp, a smart wallet project, has added a “Maximize $COMP mining” widget to allow users to get in on the action with a few clicks. Basically, this is mining with an advantage. Traders can deposit or borrow assets to gain more COMP. These same actions can be performed manually, but a smart wallet like InstaDApp eases COMP yield farming, and it only takes a couple of clicks.

BAL Farming

Instead of the 1:1 pools that Uniswap uses, Balancer, a newer automated-market maker (AMM), lets users create liquidity pools made up of several ERC20 tokens, which makes it more flexible. The designers of Balancer seek a completely decentralized governance that is also capable of doing some bootstrapping. Hence, the platform has just initiated its own liquidity mining campaign, with BAL as its governance token.

So far, 100 million BAL tokens have been minted, with up to 65 million allocated to reward liquidity providers. Currently, 145,000 BAL tokens are distributed to Balancer’s liquidity providers every week, which has attracted a lot of traders interested in yield-farming BAL rewards.

sUSD Liquidity Trial

In March this year, Sythetix commenced its own incentive program for traders of sUSD, the platform’s native stablecoin, via the iearn and Curve exchange protocols. It began with a four-week test campaign aimed at distributing 32,000 SNX tokens proportionately to liquidity providers staking their Curve LP tokens.

Users were to deposit sUSD along with another supported stablecoin like Dai, USDT, or USDC into iearn and, in turn, receive an allotment of Curve.fi sUSD/y.curve.fi tokens. They could then take their tokens to Mintr, the decentralized minting hub of the Sythetix platform, and stake them to qualify for the trial SNX awards. 

The driving concept was that traders get a regular pool of APY as well as SNX incentives for supplying liquidity to the platform. It was a very appealing campaign for yield farmers to earn interests on their lodged assets and their liquid assets that they could sell instantly on any DEX and make profits.

The Curve-Ren-Synthetix Farming Meld

One other highly rewarding yield farming prospect owes to the recent partnership between Sythetix, Curve, and Ren, an interoperability project. It’s a rewarding BTC ERC20 liquidity pool set to run for ten weeks.

The exceptional set-up of the system allows users that provide WBTC, sBTC, and renBTC liquidity to the pool to earn SNX, REN, CRV (the upcoming Curve reward token), and BAL. That is nothing short of paradise to a yield farmer.

Is it really possible? Yes. Firstly, the combined teams of Ren and Sythetix have designed a Balancer pool made up of REN and SNX tokens. The pool is to generate both BAL from the liquidity mining campaign of the Balancer platform and liquidity provider rewards in BPT form, which is basically a wrap combo of REN and SNX.

Futureswap

Promoted as being adequate for both yield farmers and traders, Futureswap is a decentralized futures exchange where users also get rewarded for providing liquidity. Although the project is yet to be officially launched, a three-day Alpha test ran at the start of the year. 

In just three days of running, owing to the remarkably high demand for the platform, the Futureswap team had to shut down the test for caution’s sake. Nonetheless, those who experienced the exchange attested to its great potential. The team’s analysis reported that the high volume during the Alpha test “translated into the outperforming of holding equal value amounts of ETH/DAI for liquidity providers of over 550% annually.” Now, here’s a margin that will be sure to get a yield farmer at the edge of their seat.

Bottom Line

The realization of yield farming has transformed the DeFi arena in such a short time, and its exciting prospects will be sure to keep drawing crypto traders in for a long time. However, as with all other forms of trading and mining, there are risks involved. Yield farming comes with both smart contract risks and liquidation risks, and so you should never farm using funds that you’re afraid to lose. Curiosity is welcome, but recklessness isn’t. The yield farming movement is here to stay, and so there should be no rush.

6 Most Profitable Yield Farming Platforms – Blockchain Cryptocurrencies

6 Most Profitable Yield Farming Platforms – Blockchain Cryptocurrencies

The latest craze in the finance world is undoubtedly cryptocurrency. The monstrous growth of Ethereum and Bitcoin assets over the past year has become the only shining light in what the Queen would have already (but understandably) written off as an ‘Annus horribilis.’ 

The doubters have become blind believers. And even newbies with no idea of what tokens are, assert to their friends and families that cryptocurrency is everybody’s path to financial freedom. 

Of course, while they might be right that the future is here, the end to that story is predictable by now. If these people don’t find the true source of the crypto heat – yield farming – it will be another sad tale of falling victim to the numerous get-rich-quick schemes out there. 

Indeed, yield farming is one of the few channels that offer the window of opportunity for investment in crypto in the craziest of ways. Either by lending or borrowing, many people have figured out ways to take advantage of yield farming. On that note, here are the six farms that currently yield the most:

Compound

One doesn’t rant about yield farming post-lockdown without paying tribute to the legendary DeFi Comp tokens. Since her debut on June  15, 2020, the value of the tokens has risen as high as $200, shocking Compound’s team and investors, and that momentum is not looking like it will run out of steam anytime soon.

The Compound protocol banked on creating activity on the platform by just giving away the tokens daily, and the world responded. After all, who wouldn’t develop an interest in a deposit that yields benefits even if you were the one taking the loan? What’s better? You can stack the yields by lending out what you borrowed from what you had initially lent out, all to multiply your yield — a true game-changer in the world of ‘Compound’ interests.

Binance

Unlike Compound, Binance is a crypto margin lending platform. That means it serves as the emergency reserve for traders looking to open leverage positions that will require more capital than they can afford at the time. Binance offers people with idle cryptos the option of giving out loans at ‘meh’ interest rates (around 0.83% for ETH).

Margin lending is a volatile business since the yield fluctuates based on the demand and supply of the loans. Then again, which part of cryptocurrency isn’t watery?

BlockFi

If you’re looking for a more profitable yield farming platform than Binance, then BlockFi is the fastest solution. Simply put, BlockFi offers 4.5% interest rates for ETH loans (where Binance offers 0.83%) and 6% for BTC (where Binance offers 0.75%). The only minor drawback is that BlockFi is a lot stricter than their counterparts, requiring KYC validation, among other certifications that can be such a hassle. Get through all that, though, and you get better deals.

NEXO

Another alternative to margin lending platforms is NEXO, which uses a centralized lending system. The centralized nature of the loan origination makes the interest rates more stable since the stability puts the interest rates out of the hands of market forces and under the control of the system. For the lenders and users, that’s great news as it affords greater interest rates.

COSMOS (ATOM)

People more adept with the nature of cryptocurrencies can venture into the world of stakable currencies. The deal is that by helping a blockchain to stay secure (or by ‘staking’), you get rewards. COSMOS is one of the big boys in that world, and the platform has amassed a serious following in the past year, with its 8.3% interest rate drawing people in by the minute.

Synthetix

Compound might be the hottest player in the DeFi Universe right now, but it all began with Synthetix. Right now, Synthetix accounts for more than one billion dollars locked away in their crypto vault. Staking a blockchain is a way of earning greater investments in currencies with potential, and thus, requires absolute caution. but the 53.79% interest rate that Synthetix promises has made millions of people throw their caution to the wind.

So, there they are, the biggest yield farms waiting for you to sow your financial seeds. The probability of success and failure is as predictable as the number of times you’ll blink tomorrow, but what’s life without a little risk?
