” They have actually obtained 2.7 M UNI + 165 YFI (+ no CRV) the other day and sent them to Binance/ They have actually paid back 1.3 M UNI given that. Remarkably they hold 14 M Sushi there,” he included.

YFI Capitulation Continues

Market expert Alex Krüger stated that EMN’s failure rippled negativeness throughout Mr. Cronje’s effective Yearn Financing task. He wrote:
” The primary factor IMO was Yearn’s outright neglect around the EMN launch, and how improperly the consequences was managed. Said so when it occurred, not in hindsight later on. Lots of exited/reduced YFI positions since of it.”
The overall worth locked inside the Yearn Financing swimming pool now stands near $600 million, a 40 percent drop from its all-time high.
