Yeti Finance is a cutting edge decentralized borrowing protocol built on Avalanche that allows users to borrow up to 11x against LP tokens, staked assets like Liquid AVAX, and base assets like WETH - and over 20x on yield-bearing stablecoins.
Users continue earning farming and staking rewards when these assets are deposited onto Yeti Finance’s platform, opening up numerous leveraged farming strategies.
Borrowers receive YUSD (an over-collateralized USD stablecoin) at a minimum ratio of 1 YUSD to 1.1 USD in collateral. Users will then be able to use the YUSD to purchase additional assets, hedge their position, or provide liquidity for additional rewards.
Yeti Finance also offers cross-margining, something the majority of borrowing protocols don't have. In simple terms, users on Yeti Finance can open up a borrowing position on their entire portfolio instead of just a single asset.
Cross-margining makes borrowing against volatile assets much safer as multiple assets can serve as collateral for your loan instead of just one, greatly reducing the risk of liquidations due to asset volatility and flash crashes.
Yeti Finance is a quantum leap forward in the stablecoin/lending landscape.
NOTE: A new borrowing model is now in effect as of November 2nd, 2022. These changes include a reduction of one-time borrowing fees and and introduction of a 0.5% starting interest rate for new and existing borrowers. Read more here.
