As most not living under a rock will know, cryptocurrency’s chief meme, Dogecoin (DOGE), has been on quite the tear of late. From a price of just $0.005 at the start of the year, the canine-themed coin hit a high of $0.68 last Saturday, May 8th — an increase of 13,500% in a little over five months.

DOGE’s stratospheric rise has outstripped that of even Ether (ETH), which has recently made headlines for its 442% spike, from $738 in January to surpass $4,000 just this week. …


Uniswap V3 launches May 5th, 2021

In a space that has only gained significant traction over the past 12 months, it feels almost anachronistic to be declaring a completely game-changing addition to decentralized finance (DeFi). Declaring it we are, though.

Launching today, May 5th, 2021, Uniswap V3 is set to transform the fundamental infrastructure that underpins automated market makers (AMMs). From liquidity provision to layer 2 scaling and an entirely new base-case for non-fungible tokens (NFTs), there is little that V3 doesn’t switch up.

From pioneer to pioneer

Launched in November 2018, Uniswap V1 was a pioneering decentralized exchange (DEX) that has since set the standard for AMMs. Uniswap and…


Cryptocurrency has myriad potential benefits for users, savers, and investors across the globe. Within developing markets, however, it is frequently argued that blockchain technology and the transparent, digital currency that runs on it has the potential to transform economies beset by unstable national currencies and rampant hyperinflation.

Countries often cited as an ideal use case for crypto include Zimbabwe, which has been plagued by hyperinflation since 2007 (inflation grew 622% in 2020 alone), as well as politically volatile Venezuela, whose bolivar has famously been used as the raw material for handbags worth 10,000 times more as tourist souvenirs than the…


Cryptocurrency has delivered incredible returns for numerous investors in recent years, however, it is not without risks. While technological advancements are making increasingly rare the types of hacks and exploits that colored the early days of crypto trading (Mount Gox’s still unrecovered $45 billion loss a case in point) these incidents do still happen.

The explosion of decentralized finance (DeFi) has also given rise to a plethora of new risks in the cryptocurrency space. …

Since the birth of Bitcoin in the halcyon days of 2009, crypto enthusiasts have been heralding a new era of global finance in which we, the people, could have a working currency all of our own. Free of interference from governments and central banks and based on incorruptible, digital ledger technology, cryptocurrency was set to make a brighter, fairer, more resilient world.

More than a decade later we have seen incredible progress in crypto. Bitcoin (BTC), once roundly mocked by the financial establishment, is now trading at more than $62,000 (as of 13 April 2020) as asset managers and the…


Layer 2 solutions are breathing life into Ethereum’s quest for mass adoption by making the network more scalable, faster, and more affordable than ever: a welcome relief for DeFi traders whose transaction fees have risen significantly over the past year.

In fact, layer 2 solutions are creating conditions that fulfill the entire financial world’s theoretical dream: a nearly frictionless market. The synergy of layer 2 solutions and the rise in nearly fee-free crypto trading could mark a renaissance in DeFi’s short but storied history.

What is layer 2?

Ethereum’s Layer 2 is an umbrella term for a series of scaling innovations like ZK rollups…


In our continuing expansion into the wider reaches of DeFi, YIELD App is pleased to announce that we have seeded $100,000 to a YLD-ETH pool on the QuickSwap exchange, making the YLD token available for trading on leading Ethereum layer 2 blockchain solution, Polygon (formerly known as Matic).

Layer 2 solutions have been frequently touted by Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin as the most practical and immediate solution to Ethereum’s congestion problem until Ethereum 2.0 is completed. …

As we continue our work to widen the reach and deepen the liquidity of the YLD token, YIELD App is thrilled to announce the launch of a YLD-ETH Sushi Onsen liquidity pool, a featured pair on the SushiSwap platform that provides our community with the ability to farm SUSHI tokens in return for staking YLD and ETH on the main SushiSwap platform.

Since its launch in…


New crypto projects, like all startups, need funding to get off the ground. ICOs, or Initial Coin Offerings, have long been a method for fundraising and token distribution. However, during the ICO frenzy of 2018 only 8% of tokens made it to the market stage, thanks in no small part to intervention by regulatory authorities.

Since then, new cryptocurrency companies have explored several other kinds of TGEs, or Token Generation Events, to launch their offerings. …

YIELD App offers the easiest way to invest in DeFi using crypto or traditional currencies, regardless of your financial or technological level of expertise.
