Taking Yield Farming to the Next Level With Animal Farm

sponsored

As a result of DeFi protocols, access to finance has been democratized, allowing anyone with an Internet connection to gain access to opportunities and services. However, they only gained popularity after the ‘DeFi summer of 2020’ and the yield farming craze that followed.

The concept of yield farming has changed the way people view savings by becoming the standard means of generating passive income in the cryptosphere. Consequently, numerous DeFi protocols have developed their architecture and functionalities around yield farming. However, yield farming has remained virtually unchanged over the years despite its value.

Introducing Animal Farm

Animal Farm is a DeFi protocol that is modelled after George Orwell’s novel of the same name that criticizes centralized power. Unlike its competitors, it is the first and only decentralized ownership lending and yield aggregation protocol in the DeFi industry.

The platform uses two native tokens, DOGS ($AFD) *live October 18th*, the reward asset, and PIGS ($AFP), the governance token, which represents the platform’s ownership stake.

Dynamic Supply

In contrast to other DeFi platforms, Animal Farm utilizes a dynamic supply control algorithm. By employing this innovative algorithm, the supply of the DOGS ($AFD) token, which will launch on October 18th, and the PIGS token, is determined in a trustless, decentralized manner.

As a result of the supply control algorithm and tokenomics of DOGS ($AFD) and PIGS ($AFP), the supply is designed to remain stable and even become deflationary during times of low demand, thereby allowing for optimal pricing performance in all market conditions.

$AFP Giveaway – Join the Animal Farm Craze

The Animal Farm team will be conducting a giveaway contest in celebration of the full launch of the protocol on October 18th. After completing a series of tasks, one user will be awarded exactly $5,000 worth of BUSD. In order to avoid adding to the circulating supply of tokens, Animal Farm does not pay for promotion or marketing with native tokens. Therefore, the reward will be in BUSD.

Animal Farm Tokenomics & Reward Model

Launching on October 18th, DOGS ($AFD) has a unique vesting model which does not lock users’ tokens. By instead using a variable tax model, it has created an incentive structure that rewards those who secure profit in the form of BUSD and BNB dividends by staking DOGS ($AFD) instead of selling it on the market.

Stakers in Animal Farm’s ‘DogPound’ have the tax associated with transacting their DOGS ($AFD) reduced at a rate of 1% daily. This model perfectly aligns incentives for optimal performance. It rewards users for removing AFD tokens from circulation while allowing them to earn as the wealthy do by accumulating assets; this allows them to earn a dividend paid out in BNB.

70% of taxes placed on DOGS ($AFD) token transactions are swapped for BNB and paid out to the ‘DogPound’ loyalty staking contract, allowing DOGS ($AFD) stakers to reduce their DOGS ($AFD) transaction tax while earning a high yield BNB dividend.

30% of taxes on transacted DOGS ($AFD) tokens are swapped for BUSD and paid out to the ‘PigPen’ as a high-yield BUSD dividend. The platform owners receive 75% of the fees generated from deposits and withdrawals in BUSD, which are then distributed as a high-yield dividend to $AFP stakers in the PigPen. 25% of fees generated on the platform from deposits and withdrawal fees are utilized to buy DOGS ($AFD) and add AFD/BUSD liquidity, generating a consistent flow of DOGS ($AFD) buy pressure and locked decentralized liquidity.

Whenever $AFP or $AFD tokens are sold, 3% of the transaction is burned, which removes them from circulation forever, making them deflationary.

Higher Yield Through Lending

Decentralized lending is achieved by lending collateralised TVL (Total Value Locked) to Pancakeswap, the largest decentralized exchange on Binance Smart Chain (BSC). Thus, Animal Farm offers low-risk yield aggregation compounded on top of yield natively generated by the protocol. Yield generated through lending to Pancakeswap is converted to BUSD and paid out to ‘PigPen’ stakers. The users gain all the benefits of earning yield on Pancakeswap while earning additional cash flow on Animal Farm with improved incentive structures.

Governance

Not only are stakers of the $AFP token earning platform fees and taxes as owners of the platform, but they also have a vote on future roadmap proposals.

Sustainability & Performance

With all of the mechanics detailed above, rewarding users for removing $AFP & $AFD tokens from circulation and paying out a dividend for doing so in the non-native token (BUSD & BNB), and dynamic control of the supply based on underlying demand, Animal Farm and it’s native tokens are designed to be the highest performing yield generating assets ever created.

Closing Thoughts

Animal Farm is ready to become one of the leaders in the DeFi world. There is an extensive roadmap, which includes already developed products, generous incentives, an appealing referral program, an elegant user interface, a distinctive architecture, and an innovative yield-generating system that performs at all market levels.

Bank Protests and Holdups Continue to Rise in Lebanon, as Depositors Demand Savings

Bank Holdups and Protests Continue to Rise in Lebanon as Depositors Demand Their Own Savings

On Dec. 17, reports detail that residents in Lebanon have been staging sit-ins and protests at banks in order to access their own savings accounts. Since the economic collapse in 2019, Lebanon’s banks froze Lebanese bank accounts, and a number of branches have remained closed indefinitely. Although a few Lebanese have been forced to fork over their savings, most of the residents have fled or been arrested without any money.

Lebanon Banks Respond to Protests and Gunpoint Requests from People Wanting Their Savings Back

In August 2019, it became apparent to the world that Lebanon was suffering from a liquidity crisis, and there have been many reports that say financial coverups and U.S. sanctions put Lebanon’s economy in a vice grip. It has been reported that by late 2018, a handful of Lebanese commercial banks froze people’s accounts and by the first week of March 2020, Lebanon said it would default on its Eurobond debt.

The country began seeking restructuring agreements. However, Lebanon’s lira rate diverged from the black market rate in August . A report published in August 2022 details that the “black market rate is what the currency is actually worth now.” In June 2022, Bitcoin.com News reported on Lebanon’s inflation rate surging to 211% which highlighted the economist Steve Hanke, who said the country should leverage a currency board.

Bank Holdups and Protests Continue to Rise in Lebanon as Depositors Demand Their Own Savings

On Dec. 17, NPR columnist Ruth Sherlock described how poverty-stricken Lebanese have been outside of banks protesting in order to get access to their own savings accounts. In Tripoli, Lebanon at an IBL Bank branch, Sherlock said a 53-year-old woman named Zahra Khaled sat in a wheelchair and would not leave the bank until the staff gave up her life savings. Sherlock reports that Khaled said the bank had frozen “tens of thousand dollars”.

Sherlock explains that Khaled’s protest was “one of the gentler tactics” and that some are using real or toy guns in order to recover their money. The NPR reporter does note that some Lebanese who resort to this tactic only want “what they are owed.” Countless reports, littered all over the internet, confirm Sherlock’s account that says Lebanese bank accounts have been frozen since 2019, since the onset of Lebanon’s economic collapse. In 2020, angry depositors and protests got so bad that the commercial banks armored the fronts of specific branch buildings with steel and cement walls.

Reuters reported in Sept. 2022 that “bank holdups snowball in Lebanon as depositors demand their own money,” as these types of acts have become a normal occurrence in the country. Reuters elaborated that five depositors held up banks in order to access their own funds and some depositors managed to get around $60K, while some people were taken into custody. In Nov. 2022, Al Jazeera detailed that banks in Lebanon reopened for two weeks. Al Jazeera was told by a Lebanese photographer that he had been waiting for a cheque to be cashed for over two weeks.

Sherlock’s reports stated that Khaled had negotiated for hours with the bank staff but they eventually left. Khaled was then taken out by the Internal Security Forces, Lebanese police who are also known as the ISF. Lebanese depositors have protested at banks such as Bank Audi, IBL Bank and Blom Bank. On Dec. 16, Reuters reported that a U.S. court of appeals has decided that Lebanese commercial banks can be tried outside Lebanon.

What do you think about Sherlock’s report that says Lebanese citizens are resorting to trying to get their funds at gunpoint and assembling protests in front of Lebanon’s commercial banks? Please comment below to let us know your thoughts on this topic.
