  • Dai Breaks Peg Amidst COMP Yield Farming cDAI Update

    Dai – DeFi’s defacto decentralized stablecoin – is facing a major hurdle as Compound adjusts it’s COMP token distribution to favor new assets earning the most COMP/day. Liquidity mining incentives are powerful.

    Is @MakerDAO up next? Props to @cyounessi1 for being ahead of the curve here.

  • This Week in DeFi – June 26th

    To Our DeFi Community,
    The liquidity wars have begun. With virtually every DeFi protocol now launching or exploring yield farming incentives, we’re beginning to see a fight for liquidity on Ethereum.
    And it’s just beginning. While Compound and Balancer have been prime examples of successful launches for yield farming- where their native governance tokens soared in value alongside hundreds of millions in new liquidity – there are dozens of other protocols jumping into the queue … … More

  • This Week in DeFi – June 19th

    To Our DeFi Community,
    Compound’s launch of the COMP token earlier this week may have very well sparked a new trend in DeFi – liquidity mining (also known as yield farming). In case you somehow missed it, the leading lending protocol has begun distributing COMP tokens to each of the protocol’s money markets pro-rata by the total interest accrued. While many were anticipating the launch, few expected the results.
    After initially listing on Uniswap for $16, COMP tokens have soare… … More
