Yield Farming — How Single Finance Lab Is Revolutionizing The DeFi Metaverse.

Updated: Aug 23, 2022

Blockchain technology opened the door to new financial solutions, with one of its components playing a major role — The DeFi Metaverse. From yield farming, staking to liquidity farming, those concepts share one thing in common: they allow anyone to use their capital in order to get percentage-rate rewards in return. There is no doubt this caught the eyes of crypto investors and potential ordinary Joe looking for additional revenue streams. There is definitely a new catch here!

Are you a new crypto user looking for a high APY at low risk? Are you an experienced yield farmer tired of manual monitoring and impermanent losses? The bridge between automated and decentralized financial services and traditional finances has unlocked unlimited possibilities and it is now within our reach. If you are wondering how to start yield farming and maximize your returns, automate your monitoring while lowering your risks — more particularly with the help of Single Finance — you will find everything you need to know here. Let’s get you started on this exciting journey.

What is Yield Farming?

Crypto liquidity providers (LPs), also known as yield farmers, are at the center of the staggering DeFi ecosystem. In a simple way, we could describe yield farming as lending crypto assets in exchange for rewards. DeFi protocols can be seen as startups waiting for daring investors to kick them off. Perhaps yield farming comes off as a rewarding program for early believers and adopters. It becomes an essential element in the functionment of the DeFi ecosystem as it enables exchange and lending services and maintains the liquidity on DEXs.

Yield farmers lend their assets through a smart contract, functioning as a liquidity pool. On the same protocol, the assets locked on those liquidity pools can be borrowed from other users. The same way as staking, yield farmers can move their assets from one pool to another one looking for the best APY offering.

Given the number of yield-farming protocols with differentiators to take in consideration, it might be difficult to choose which one fits the best. Each DeFi platform offers different incentives for optimized returns. Discover some of them below:

The Opportunities and Downsides of Yield Farming & DeFi

Fantastic, now that you are more familiar with how exactly yield farming is working, the first question coming into our mind is what are the main advantages of yield farming?

There is an opportunity of passive income that could be evaluated to a hundred times higher than traditional financing. Yield farmers rewards are often higher than staking, where APY can reach triple digits. Those returns can be boosted with liquidity mining, which makes yield farming extremely popular.

One of the downsides of high-yield harvesting strategies is the risk of liquidation. In case of an asset dropping in value, the gains might be wiped out and the collateral is put at risk for liquidation. This is without mentioning that some lending protocols require up to 200% of the value borrowed to be deposited as collateral. Yield farming relies on smarts contracts and DeFi protocols that could be subject to attacks and hacks. Users should also keep in mind the well-known and high risk volatility of the crypto market — the latter also goes for the entire DeFi ecosystem.

Yield farming requires an extremely well-thought and complex strategy. It might be a difficult task to evaluate and manage the risks effectively without close and very often manual monitoring of all market factors and situations. As things currently stand, investors are left without well-collected data and analysis that would help them in making the best investment decisions. As such, many question whether the rewards are worth the risk, which in turn great impacts and slows institutional and mainstream adoption.
