Where do you get your yield?

Title, but give some specifics! I’m curious where everybody gets their yield. With relatively “safe” sources like Aave not paying much in interest, I’ve gone to some slightly stranger places to get decent yield.

While not too wild, Beefy has some decent single-sided vaults depending on the chain. Reaper and Granary both have some pretty good yields on Optimism too.

One of my favorites has been Impermax, which does leveraged yield farming on several chains. It’s got a bunch of different pairs so you can spread things out. The APRs on some of the assets can stay pretty high for a while, and I have even started looking through their deprecated pairs that have some really good APRs on positions that I guess people just forgot they had open. For instance there are some really good yields on ETH and stables on deprecated pairs on Arbitrum and Fantom.

A few others are [Market.xyz]( which has sporadically good yields if you’re not working with huge size. And Acryptos is on a bunch of chains where you can often find 5-10% on ETH and stables.

Where else?

  1. Gains network is a decentralized leverage trading platform (perhaps you’ve heard of one of its competitors GMX?). Its DAI vault on polygon is paying 16% APY and on Arbitrum its 22%. All comes from trading fees from its platform – all paid out in DAI, not fake token inflation. The APYs will come back down to sane numbers once more people stake and rewards get spread to more people, but it usually sits around 8-10%.

    Link to vaults if you interested: https://gains.trade/vault
    Of course, recommend you read the docs & ask questions in telegram/discord so you are familiar with it all first

  2. Mostly on stargate finance. I mean that one that’s a fork of compound finance. DAFI protocol too. Do so some farming on beefy sometimes, but not with funds that can kill me.

  3. All of my LPs have been absolutely decimated during this bear market. I was mostly using beefy with vaults from BeethovenX on FTM chain.

    Very depressing.

  4. Arbitrum, Metis and OP mainly. A lot of revenue sharing protocols are emerging so only looking for “real yield’ whenever I can.

  5. Have been LP’ing on Hyphen (Biconomy) with stables, also Velodrome on stable pairs and lastly Perpetual Protocol has launched their fee sharing feature (you need to hold and lock the $PERP token though) with pretty good APR

  6. For relatively small amounts (under 10 000 $) I use single staked vaults on Tarot (FTM). Nothing better can find. Sometimes borrow on GEIST and lend on TAROT. But You need to menage positions manually and periodically move funds between vaults for better yield. FTM fees allow to do it at low cost.

  7. Beefy works great but I don’t have any pool open there anymore, only on uni with sylo/eth lp.
    The bear market didn’t do much good to most LP positions.

  8. I’m still using Aave a lot. It’s one of the most reliable platforms rn. On Optimism, I’m mainly using Curve and Beefy. I’m also using Dafi and Sphere on Polygon. I wasn’t aware of Granary and Reaper. Which one do you prefer? I’ll take a look at Market xyz.

  9. DeltaPrime on Avalanche has good yield options.

    Up to 5x leverage borrowing USDC or AVAX, can only be used on selected protocols though. I’m running 50% APY at the moment mostly through USDC-AVAX LP

  10. Sorry to break it to ya but the days of high yields on risk adverse assets is gone. Maybe blips will appear but nothing like the year long we had

  11. Trader Joe mostly, I really love the work they are putting into that projects in the avax chain, overall they have been doing great expanding to other branches but their yield is pretty good.
