Episode: #25 - YFI: Farming the farmers
August 10th, 2020
Andre Cronje calls himself just another DeFi dev, but you can't help but wonder, is he's underselling himself with that title?
In a few short months, he single-handedly created a fleet of DeFi yield farming money robots that locked up over $400m in assets in his yearn protocol. He launched a YFI token that grew in value by over 1,000% in its first week, one of the most explosive price charts crypto has ever seen.
No pre-mine, no VC, no founders reward.
Maybe a better title is King of the Yield Farmers. DeFi's Satoshi.
Who is this guy?
What did he build and why is it brilliant?
