yAxis launches three new yield generating vaults that are asset-based on Ethereum mainnet. With the addition of the tricrypto2, cvxETH, and FRAX vaults, the DAO-directed, multi-asset, meta yield aggregator now boasts a total of seven distinct vaults into which users can deposit their digital assets.
- 3 new vaults launched on Ethereum Mainnet.
- Tricrypto2, CvxETH, FRAX asset-based vaults.
- Gas-free auto-compounding.
- Vaults built on top of the Convex Finance DeFi Protocol.
- Industry-leading APRs.
- Battle-tested vault architecture.
- Code scrutinized by 2 comprehensive audits reviews.
yAxis Vaults Offers
Simply put, yAxis builds on top of the hugely successful Convex Finance protocol. By depositing digital assets into yAxis vaults, users tap into a reliable revenue model and receive a healthy dose of yAxis rewards on top. However, arguably of more importance, vault users also benefit from the yAxis Auto Compound function.
Save Gas Fees with yAxis Auto Compound
The yAxis protocol pools users’ funds, deposits them into the respective Convex pools, regularly harvests the rewards, and automatically compounds them. This auto compounding feature helps save significantly on gas fees and increases earning potential.
Harvests occur three times every month, so the savings on gas add up quickly. yAxis handles all the compounding autonomously, allowing users to sit back and watch their capital grow.
Don’t Forget Voting Power!
Another key feature of the vaults is yAxis native governance token, yAxis. By locking yAxis tokens into the protocol, users gain Voting Power in the form of veYAxis (voting escrow yAxis).
Voting Power is a key component in many vault yield generating functions. First up, “Personal Boost Multipliers (PBM)”.
A PBM represents a personalized “BOOST” to vault reward APRs. With yAxis PBM, users can receive a 2.5x boost on their rewards. For example, a minimum vault reward APR of 10% coupled with a MAX 2.5x Boost would result in a 25% Reward APR.
veYAXIS: DeFi Governance Token on Steroids
Locking up yAxis tokens allows users to participate in competitive DAO-directed reward distribution. Users with veYAXIS get to vote on how yAxis rewards are directed across the various vaults. Think of a seven-way vault Tug-of-War with yAxis tokens as the prize. This “gamification” of reward distribution has led to ever-increasing amounts of yAxis being locked into governance contracts. At the time of writing, over 44% of the circulating supply of yAxis is locked into governance.
The multifaceted utility of the yAxis token has been turning heads in the crypto space, with Defi Pulse describing the token as a “DeFi Gov token on steroids.” TheDefiant recently highlighted yAxis as an early mover on the locked governance token model.
A Vision Into The Future
yAxis spokesperson MrMister, said of the vault launch, “We are thrilled to be launching three new yAxis vaults on Ethereum mainnet. When we first envisioned the yAxis project, one of our main objectives was to create a protocol with an underlying architecture that would rapidly deploy many vaults and strategies. With the smooth deployment of the Tricrypto2, CvxETH, FRAX vaults, the team feels that the initial vision has nearly come to fruition and that our original design choices have been justified.”
MrMister continued, “What’s exciting is now that we have a proven and reliable model for vault expansion, it’s time to branch out and deploy onto other chains. With that being said, our next milestone is the deployment of our battle-tested vault architecture onto the fast-growing, low-fee Avalanche network. See you there.”
