3. BPT Farming with balancer pools

What is BPT? : First “Balancer Pool Token” is not the same as Balancer Token, Balancer Pool Token represent your share ownership on a balancer pool, each pool have a different BPT token with a custom contract address, you get BPT after add liquidity to any balancer pool, you can transfer that token as a erc20 token, also if you lose your BTP you will lose all your funds on the pool!.

This is a risk pool. Funds are added into a balancer liquidity pool. Your funds will be used on market exchanges and there is a possibility of impermanent loss, but you will be rewarded with swap fees too and it can reduce losses or increase your earning if all go ok. When you add funds into a balancer pool, u will be rewarded with BPT (Balancer pool token). You will use that BPT to stake on https://yfv.finance/

3. YFV vault, vUSD and vETH


Information about vaults will be updated here when more technical details and concept of Value Vaults will be introduced

vUSD and vETH

YFV created 2 new tokens with elastic supply called vUSD and vETH. This is an experimental protocol mashing up the current most exciting innovations in the DeFi world. Following Ampleforth elastic supply models, vUSD and vETH will expand and contract supply in response to market conditions, to target 1 USD per vUSD and 1 ETH per vETH.

vUSD and vETH will be used in the whole ecosystem, in the subsequent step of the road map, to set up Vault, pay rewards, stake etc….

There will be a total of 1,000,000 vUSD and 1000 vETH distributed to all pools according to their percentage. When farmers harvest YFV, vUSD and vETH will be harvested at the same rate as well.

After all the pools have been exhausted, vUSD and vETH will use an oracle price feed as determined by the governance of YFV. The rebase will use the UniswapV2_VUSD+YCRVUSD Liquidity Pool and UniswapV2_vETH +YCRvETH Liquidity Pool as the oracle for the price with a target of 1USD = vUSD and 1ETH = vETH.

In addition, rebase events occur once every 24 hours.
