Highlights

  • Reports that Andre Cronje is exiting the DeFi sector may have put pressure on DeFi linked tokens
  • YFI crypto also lost value in the wake of this news, but it has now rebounded
  • YFI is an expensive cryptocurrency, and its price was once more than that of Bitcoin

The cryptocurrency universe was already reeling from losses over the past couple of days, and reports about Andre Cronje, a prominent DeFi developer, quitting may have added to this downward pressure. In this light, let’s know about the YFI crypto.

What makes yearn.finance different?

Yearn Finance or yearn.finance claims to provide DeFi aggregation services, which may enable a crypto holder to make the best out of yield farming. As DeFi gained traction, many crypto enthusiasts seem to be flocking to platforms that aid lending and borrowing in crypto assets. The lender earns interest, which to some might seem a better alternative to undertaking regular buying and selling of their assets.

Yearn Finance claims it can maximize the yield from farming through aggregation of DeFi protocols like Compound and Aave. As there are a number of DeFi platforms, the Yield Finance project’s aggregating services might attract users. The project is said to be using two blockchain networks -- Ethereum, and Fantom.
