Chad issues a Call to Farms

Over the last few weeks the community of humble farmers has produced a few nice looking videos and infographics that help explain what Harvest Finance is all about (see Winners of Part 1).

But now we want to share this knowledge, and will be awarding prizes for the best Twitter marketers and shillanthropists. So you have to be able to consistently and effectively push the narrative of Harvest Finance being the best yield aggregator and draw attention to its key value propositions.

How can you do this? Well, this is really up to you — any strategy goes — but…

We asked our humble farmers to explain some of the finer points of harvesting yields in the fields of defi. As usual, they happily obliged.

There were 2 categories for producing materials to help with marketing and general education around Harvest)— Infographics and Video.

Without further ado, here are the best submissions:

Farmer Chad was full of good ideas to pump $FARM

2021- the Year of the Metal Ox — is upon us, and it’s time to re-evaluate how the message of Harvest Finance is being delivered.

Yield farming has exploded in popularity over the last few months, but despite this, it’s still a relatively small niche in the wider cryptosphere. The concepts and processes that enable high APYs are complex and murky, so it’s not always easy for newcomers (or even old-hands) to understand what’s going on.

To help with our goal of making yield farming easy and accessible, we are asking our community to come up with a range of marketing materials that will help explain in a clear and concise manner how Harvest Finance works.

We value creativity, clarity and quality!

Things we are…

Farmers! The Harvest team thanks you for taking the time to participate in our Creativity Competition, “Surviving a Harsh Winter on the Farm”. Once again, we were astounded by the number of amazing entries that came in.

Chad’s feeling festive- ’tis the season to be jolly — thanks Sumire

The quantity and quality of submissions have certainly increased over the past few iterations of the contest. This time around, we had delicious looking cakes, clever digital art, cute dolls, benevolent charity work, catchy songs and many other amazing entries. Judging had never been so difficult and the team struggled to pick only 50 winners out of the hundreds of submissions. Congratulations to all who scooped some $FARM. For those of you that didn’t win this round, rejoice, for there is a round 4!

Before we get to round 4’s details, we’d like to share some insights on how submissions…

Something a bit different, because it’s been a while!

Recently I took a trip to the wildly under-rated city of Kyiv, Ukraine. I’ll get around to writing about why Ukraine makes sense for outsourcing blockchain dev soon enough, but for now, here are some snapshots of a beautiful place, with friendly people, and a fascinating vibe.

Satoshi Nakamoto, the enigmatic creator of Bitcoin, originally conceived the digital currency as a “peer-to-peer electronic cash system”. Over the years, the narrative has gradually shifted, and today Bitcoin is commonly regarded as a “store of value” or “digital gold”, in no small part due to the high cost and long time it takes to settle Bitcoin transactions.

As a result, various spin-offs with low transaction fees and fast confirmation speeds have been created, of which Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) are among the most prominent.

On first glance, these two cryptocurrencies would appear to be remarkably similar, as…

If you want to know what’s going on within the Ethereum network, then you need to become familiar with block explorers. They are extremely useful tools for checking on the state of the network, individual transfers, contract calls and more. Many also provide details around tokens.

These services are all free to use, which shouldn’t be underestimated, considering the time and expense it takes to maintain and develop. For the last few months, every day, there are 500,000+ transactions on Ethereum. These are all logged by block explorers, and fed back to you in a (relatively) easy to digest format.

0x is one seriously ambitious project. It’s primarily developing a protocol to enable decentralized trading of tokens on Ethereum. It has the potential to become the technical standard delivering seamless interoperability of tokenized value across platforms, geographies, and individuals.

In essence, 0x offers a decentralized exchange plugin for Ethereum-based (d)applications. Once the 0x Protocol has been integrated into a dapp, the dapp has a decentralized exchange function and the dapp’s native token can be easily traded against other ERC-20 tokens that have integrated the plugin and Ethereum.

There is a growing list of Ethereum-based projects that have integrated the 0x Protocol into their dapp, including Maker, Augur, Request Network, Aragon and Dharma. The tokens of these dapps are thus directly tradable against each other. …

Populous is targeting the glamorous world of invoice discounting, by putting the business onto the Ethereum blockchain through a P2P auction-style platform.

It allows invoice sellers access to a global market for liquidity, while providing invoice purchasers transparency, security, and other benefits of the blockchain in their investment. In a nutshell, Populous is a platform that allows invoice sellers to receive short-term loans from investors, utilizing their invoices as collateral.

In order to understand what “invoice discounting” is, it is first important to understand the concept of factoring, which is the more common financial business today.

Invoice factoring is the business where a financial institution provides cash to a company in exchange for ownership of the company’s unpaid invoices, known as receivables…

During the late 2017-early 2018 bull-run, the volume of transactions on the Ethereum blockchain increased to a level where the limitations became painfully apparent.

Transaction costs rose to unreasonable levels as the network couldn’t properly scale to cope with its popularity. This scalability issue has been well-documented within the community, and came as no surprise to certain projects working on second-layer solutions to segregate the bulk of transactions from the main blockchain.

Loom Network is one such project, and they are creating a platform that allows easy development of dApps on their own sidechains, while using the Ethereum network as its base layer. The team describes it as a type of “build your own blockchain” generator. Loom is notable for having released a working…
