DeFi Yield DuckEDITION #30, 10 February

Is this...a market reversal?!

With Delta.ThetaShare

Hey Moni Maker

Well, degens and fighters of the cryptocurrency front! Hopes are starting to appear, haven't died yet... ugh, I'm looking forward to the new bull run!  

Although the guys from Delta.Theta and Moni Talks are telling me to be careful - or I'll fantasise now and then... old fool... 

This is YieldDuck. Farm Milka Ranch. Let's walk!


Overall Legacy of the Week

So, what am I seeing? Is this a market reversal? Or are the f@cking market makers manipulating the market again to give hope and then shave everyone off and make massive dough on liquidations??? TVL +10% for the week, so fingers crossed and no FUD (and fast food, you already have the big ass).

ETH took up half of the entire race; it is not something unnatural. 

Float of the week: IDEX (+100%) 

BSC plus a billion, but it's gotten kind of boring. 

Gainer of the week: Ola Finance (+197%)

SOLANA is minus 100 million, hmmm. 

Plus of the week: Larix (+22.8%)

And Polygon added over 500 million for the week! Dude, we're glad you're alive.

Consolation of the week: InsurAce (+45.54%)

AVALANCHE  + 1.5b!

Leader of the week: HakuSwap (+1588%)

FANTOM minus half a billion. Time to reload the scary gun.

Opening of the week: KNIGHTS (+11850%) 

Projects' News


Opyn is a decentralised options protocol.  The week announced the closing of a $6.7 million Series A investment round (Paradigm led the round. The protocol cites its capital-efficient options trading structure, which allows users to buy, sell and create options in the form of ERC-20 tokens, as a competitive advantage. While several DeFi-options platforms are under development, no clear leader has emerged yet. Opyn competes in this space with Hegic, Primitive, Charm Finance, Delta.Theta and others.


San Francisco-based Web3 developer Alchemy has raised a further $200 million in investment less than four months after its previous funding round. The latest funding round was led by Lightspeed and Silver Lake, bringing the company's valuation to $10.2 billion. Previous investors such as Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), Coatue and Pantera also participated in the round.
The hack was assessed as a "loss of about $4.3 million, including $4.2 million in ETH and $83k in wBTC", according to CertiK. The attacker transferred "most of his profits to Tornado Cash to launder". The CertiK Incident Response Team (CIRT) noted that the bridge provides a multichain connection between ETH, BSC and Moonriver, and the attack "occurred on a bridge function that is used to wrap and deploy ETH or BSC gas tokens automatically.


More hacking news. This time the victim was Polygon's native stablecoin network protocol, QiDao, whose funds were withdrawn from the Superfluid Westing contract by a hacker. A total of around 13 million in funds were stolen. The protocol team has been quick to report that customer funds are safe and only early investors' funds were affected (right, right). An investigation into the incident is ongoing at the moment.


I'm not Milen Farmer. I'm a Farmer.

And now I'm going to share some interesting farming ideas with you. I've listed them down into three parts by risk profile: low, medium, and high (IT’S REALLY DANGEROUS).

Even though Delta.Theta did a good analysis, DYOR on your part is necessary! DYOR is a f@cking mask when you walk into a store! You can't go into projects without it! Gooooo!

Low Risk
A squadron of llamas will bring you to shores of gold! But first, let's protect ourselves from the motherf@cking printing press!

Medium Risk

Quality farming from Morpheus. Good Morning, Mr. Andersen, welcome to the real world

High Risk

Monsieur, you also can DYOR on this 

Anyway, if you lose the money, don't even think about coming to my ranch. I'll cut your ass off and you won't be able to sit in crypto anymore. All right, I'm kidding. I'm gonna go finish my milk and go to sleep.

Follow my homies everywhere. Otherwise, there won't be any more digests!
