Decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol Yearn Finance has finally launched its long-awaited version 2 vaults but details are still scarce. Meanwhile, its native YFI token has jumped around 15% in price.

As part of a wider redesign for Yearn Finance, the v2 vaults have gone live today amid little fanfare and few details, aside from a short but colorful video clip.

Earning strategies on the existing v1 vaults have been a bit lackluster recently, causing liquidity on the platform to dwindle. Yearn hopes that the new strategies will rejuvenate the ecosystem and bring the farmers flooding back.

One of the impendent consultants for the Vyper smart contract programming language added that the v2 vaults have been in the making for four months and have undergone eight design iterations.

New Yearn Finance Vaults

Currently, Yearn Finance’s website is still showing the v1 vaults, of which curve.fi/BUSD is the best-performing, yielding around 20% per year.

A snapshot of some of the new vaults was posted by DeFi and Ethereum enthusiast ‘Calamenium;’

At first glance, there doesn’t appear to be much of a difference between v1 and v2 vault yields.

However, the Chainlink vault is once again live, a yHegic vault was added, and a SushiSwap v2 vault is available that, according to the screenshot, was showing a negative yield. The highly anticipated next iteration of the yETH vault was nowhere to be seen.

With nothing ‘official’ from Yearn Finance itself explaining the new vaults, it appears that yield farmers will have to wait a little longer. Developer ‘Vasa’ did say he was working on three of them at the moment.

Garnering more attention at the moment is the Yearn buyback and build proposal which might involve minting more YFI.

Naturally, it will all be decided through a governance vote. Founder Andre Cronje’s Twitter feed has been a mess of memes over the past day or so, but one Tweet did stick out;

Cronje also unleashed a monumental rant at the DeFi community last week as the scene started to resemble a circus.

YFI Price Update

The heightened activity around the protocol has lifted token prices for YFI, which is up around 15% over the past 24 hours.

From an intraday low of around $34,000, YFI surged to $40,000 at the time of press.

The primary attraction of YFI is its extremely low supply, so the premise of minting more may not be favorable to many who are invested in it.

[Press Release – Los Angeles, California, 8th May, 2021]

Iconic Brazilian footballer Pelé will be immortalized in NFT form on May 8.

The legendary striker, named FIFA World Player of the Century, is getting the tokenized treatment with the release of a licensed aNFT – authenticated non-fungible token – exclusively on the Ethernity Chain at 12pm EST.

The coveted collection features several aNFTs of the soccer star, the result of a collaboration between Visual Lab and Rafa Zabala, whose credits include The Hobbit and Planet of the Apes.

The digital presentation includes “THE KING OF FOOTBALL,” an immersive video tracing the player’s humble origins on the streets of Brazil to a packed stadium witnessing his brilliance. The eponymous “Pelé” aNFT, meanwhile, is represented by a hyper-realistic digital bronze bust of the star in his heyday.

As part of the Pelé aNFT collection, Ethernity will be releasing multi-pack trading cards that make a nod to the player’s Panini trading cards of the past.

Ethernity’s special digital trading cards include “Gilded Bicycle Pelé,” which showcases the player executing his signature bicycle kick. The limited edition cards will be part of the Ethernity Cards and Packs Collection launching this summer, 2021.

90% of aNFT sales will go to The Pelé Foundation, a charitable organization that strives to empower young people facing poverty around the world.

Ethernity’s recent Muhammad Ali aNFT auction, which raised over $550,000, also resulted in a significant donation being made to the Muhammad Ali Foundation.

Crypto Banter Will Give Away Over $500K To 10 Eligible Community Members

Republished by Plato

Published

[Press Release – Cape Town, South Africa, 8th May, 2021]

Banter Bags is a unique project in the cryptocurrency world that aims to give back to its community. What initially started as a $10,000 community giveaway is now worth over $500.000. Ten eligible community members will be chosen randomly to receive their share of the spoils once the Crypto Banter Youtube channel surpasses 250,00 subscribers.

The Banter Bags Giveaway is an event created by Ran Neuner, host of CNBC Crypto Trader and founder of Crypto Banter on Youtube. The initial objective was to reward active participation in the community and generate more engagement with the daily streams but as the investments started to grow it became a mechanism to really change some community member lives.

Speaking of pre-market allocations, the Crypto banter team initially put $10,000 in a public Ethereum address. That money was then invested into allocations, with more investments occurring daily to diversify the portfolio further. Several key investments have noted spectacular returns, including Shopx, Aioz, Refineable and Occam. All of these pre-market allocations have gone up in value by a factor of 100 or more.

As the total value of the Banter Bags now exceeds $500,000, a golden opportunity is created for the community. Once the Youtube channel surpasses 250,000 subscribers, ten community members will earn a Banter Bag with the corresponding spoils. The only requirement to be eligible is to subscribe to Crypto Banter on YouTube and follow the Twitter account. Community members can amplify their chances by following @cryptomanran and @sheldon_sniper on Twitter, by liking/commenting on tweets, and engaging with the two daily streams.

The Crypto Banter team adds:

“It started off as a fun idea of giving $10000 to our community, and as we started to invest, we realized that the community loved the idea of investments in pre-market allocations that we previously off-limits for the average investor. With this in mind, we went all in using our influence to reward our community. It was supposed to be a cool $10,000 giveaway to reward the community, and it has landed up becoming an opportunity to change lives. The channel has exploded since we launched this initiative. We’re up by over 100% on every metric, we gained over 100k subscribers and got over 5m views in the last 28 days. More than that, our community has engaged more. They love the idea that we are giving back to them and that we may at any point change another life.”

Five winners have been randomly selected so far, all of which have an amazing story to share. One of the winners, who goes by the name of Irfan, lost his job and was struggling financially. With a pregnant wife expected to give birth in two months, being announced the winner of a Banter Bag triggered a life-changing event for Irfan. Anyone can go through a similar experience once the remaining Bags are given away to community members.

We also announced that one of the bags will be given to a charity and we are currently looking for a viable option.

XRP, Dogecoin, Cardano Price analysis: 08 May

Republished by Plato

Published

on

Volatility was shrinking in the XRP market and some rangebound movement was predicted moving forward. Buying resumed for Dogecoin as the price overturned $0.69 from resistance to support. Lastly, Cardano presented a few targets above $2 which could be toppled in the coming weeks.

XRP

Source: XRP/USD, TradingView

At the time of writing, the world’s fifth-largest cryptocurrency – XRP was trading within a range of $1.63-$1.53. Bollinger Bands contracted and a volatile market that saw XRP rise from $1.31 to $1.75 was now coming to an end. This suggested some short-term sideways movement. On the other hand, OBV has been on an uptrend since late April and buying pressure has been steadily building up in the market.

If the $1.75-ceiling is toppled, XRP could shoot north of $1.96 and register a new local high. If the market takes a bearish path, $1.31-support could be under the spotlight.

Dogecoin [DOGE]

Dogecoin jumped by 8% in the last 24-hours as the buying frenzy resumed after yesterday’s cooldown. According to the Awesome Oscillator, momentum was with the bulls and the bars switched to green once again. This was widely anticipated as Elon Musk’s Saturday Night Live appearance was now just a few hours away. RSI was also in bullish territory above 65. Even if the index moved in the overbought zone, it would be of little consequence as bullish sentiment alone could drive DOGE.

On the 4-hour timeframe, buyers flipped $0.69-resistance to a region of support. While volumes were yet to reach levels seen a few days ago, this could quickly change in the coming sessions. A bullish outcome could see DOGE rise above $0.80 before a pullback. Once a sell-off occurs, support lines to watch out for include $0.57 and $0.53.

Cardano [ADA]

Source: ADA/USD, TradingView

Since early March, Cardano largely oscillated between the channel $1.48-$1.01. While a breakout did occur a couple of days ago, volumes were distant from levels seen during February. The technicals still highlighted a bullish market and a few Fibonacci levels were plotted on the daily timeframe.

MACD line maintained above the Signal line and its histogram noted a series of green bars. Supertrend Indicator continued to flash a buy signal which would switch to sell at $1.20. A few targets lay at 138.2% ($2.13) and 161.8% ($2.37) Fibonacci levels and these could be toppled in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, volumes must be observed for sharp price movement within the market.
