Yearn TVL Has Exceeded $2.5b

We are thrilled to announce that total value locked (TVL) across all Yearn products, including yVaults (v1 and v2), iEarn, the Iron Bank, and experimental yVaults has exceeded $2.5b. TVL in Yearn products has seen explosive growth in recent history and shows no signs of slowing down!

We have created yearn.science to track and monitor TVL across Yearn products over time. Check it out here

Launch of Our Weekly yVault Report

We are releasing a weekly yVault report to give more transparency and information regarding our yVaults. We hope to inform end users about current statistics with our yVaults, including most recent APYs, TVL by yVault, and the revenue mix bifurcated between governance, strategists, and depositors by the top performing yVaults. New relevant information will be added to this report as deemed appropriate.

Yearn Strategists Find the Opportunities For You

Yearn yVaults are managed by Strategists who are among the most knowledgeable and advanced users in DeFi. These Strategists divert vault funds to new opportunities as they arise benefiting you the depositor. This week a new yield-farming opportunity quickly emerged and our Strategists were quick to create a new strategy. APR for the new strategy, when initially announced, was as high as 460%. Our v2 yvETH, yvDAI, yvUSDC and yvWBTC vaults had funds diverted to benefit from this new strategy. You can rest assured that Yearn Strategists are at the forefront of DeFi and are allocating your funds as new lucrative opportunities arise.
