Benefits of using Yearn with Argent
Earning with Yearn through Argent is unique because of its:
- Simplicity: Only one transaction required. (No need for a separate approval).
- Security: No infinite token approvals; you automatically only approve what you need to spend. You also have peace of mind that you're interacting with the right contracts.
We've launched with 7 Vaults (USDC, DAI, SNX, 1INCH, YFI, WBTC, USDT, UNI, ETH).
Why Yearn matters
Yearn has grown at a monumental pace since its launch in early 2020. Yearn makes it easy for anyone to "yield farm" (trying to maximize the return on your assets by utilizing multiple DeFi protocols). Yearn compare their approach to passive investing.
There's also a big benefit when it comes to Ethereum network fees ('gas'). Gas is "socialized" across everyone using that Vault making it much more economical for the average user.
Strategies are proposed by the community and voted on by Yearn's governance.
With V2, each Vault can employ multiple strategies, whereas V1 Vaults used just one each.
