Yam farming was a spectacular failure

This week’s Everipedia Digest takes a look at the Yam farming fiasco.

Only hours after Yam.Finance launched their YAM token, compatible DeFi projects saw double-digit gains. However, the prosperity was short-lived as an unforeseen bug crashed the whole thing.

The rest of the newsletter is focused on general DeFi items, because crypto hasn’t seen a boom like this since the ICO craze of 2017.

The YFI token got some wind at its back when a Binance listing facilitated a 50% surge. The token is famous for running up 70x in less than a week.

While everyone is praying for a layer 2 solution to lower gas fees and congestion on Ethereum, Everipedia has been developing DeFi primitives on EOS. ​

Everipedia is developing prediction markets, synthetic assets, lending markets, leverage and much more.
