The YFI price drops by 10% over the past 24-hours despite the two main positive fundamental trends as we are reading more in today’s altcoin news.
Despite the resilience in Bitcoin’s price, Yearn.finance had a quite brutal day along with other Defi tokens. The YFI price drops by 10% over the past day, while still being the leading decentralized finance coin based on Ethereum. The cryptocurrency is now trading at $20,900 which is below the all-time high of $44,000. YFI’s price drop came as other Defi tokens underwent a strong pullback between 5-15% thus underperforming Bitcoin and Ethereum and other altcoins. Yearn.finance’s decline came despite the positive fundamental trends in the Defi space currently. Yearn.finance is a decentralized finance protocol that allows users to obtain the biggest returns on their deposits on crypto. It is also expanding into a number of market segments including decentralized exchanges, decentralized insurance, and decentralized lending.

There were a lot of positive announcements and developments for the cryptocurrency and its ecosystem. YFI has the main product dubbed Vaults which has been undergoing upgrades over the past few weeks. yBTC, yETH, and other strategies were rolled out and drew a huge amount of capital from investors that were looking to make profits on their investments. There were some positive announcements as well.
There’s some movement on getting YFI added as collateral for the MakeDAO ecosystem which is a beneficial addition that will allow MakerDAO to gain collateral and will boost the utility for YFI. Developers are working on an upgrade and are also working on its cryptocurrency which makes more room for growth in DeFi. Spencer Noon, the head of DTC Capital commented recently:
“The strong fundamental backdrop to #crypto — which is unlike any bull market previously — is that there are billions of cryptodollars coming on-chain to use #DeFi. Unless that shows signs of slowing, we are on track for a multi-trillion dollar aggregate marketcap for the space.”

There are other trends as well such as positive developmental trends and introducing the scaling solutions which are most likely to boon the Defi trend even further. Yearn.Finance stands to benefit from all of this because it was seen by many as an index play in the decentralized finance space.
