What is Beefy Finance?

Beefy Finance is a Multi-Chain Yield Optimizer platform that allows its users to earn compound interest on their crypto holdings. It helps maximize the user rewards from various liquidity pools, AMMs, etc... through a set of investment strategies enforced by smart contracts.

For those who are unfamiliar, I'll use this example to explain what a yield aggregator protocol is:

The Binance Smart Chain contains a plethora of DeFi applications. Consequently, users are often unsure of which option will give them the best yield. These problems were addressed by Yield Aggregators. As a result, these protocols "aggregate" yield by using a combination of complex strategies that are automatically executed by smart contracts in order to provide users with the highest possible yield. Of these, Beefy Finance is a good example.

When users farm through Yield Aggregators, they can earn interest from the main Liquidity Pools as well as incentives from the Yield Aggregators such as its native tokens (in this case, farming on Beefy Finance will receive BIFI).

Why Beefy Finance?

Most notable about Beefy Finance is its multichain integration, which has already partnered with ten different chains, including Binance Smart Chain and Avalanche, Heco, Polygon, Fantom, Harmony, Arbitrum, Celo, Moonriver and Cronos.

Beefy Finance can provide a simple way for investors to interact with pools, projects, and other yield opportunities without having to constantly make decisions and take manual actions. Hence, it can help you come up with more complicated strategies and more frequent rebalancing.

How does Beefy Finance work?

Valts

Have you ever felt bothered because when you are a farmer on DEXs, you must manually harvest, sell rewards, buy more tokens, and reinvest them continuously?

→ A vault can do all that automatically at a high frequency.

It is a tool that has a specific set of yield farming strategies. Vaults make use of automation to continually invest and reinvest deposited funds, which helps to achieve high levels of compounded interest.

By using a Beefy vault to compound users’ gains, users will save time and pay fewer gas fees by eliminating unnecessary transactions associated with gas costs.  Beefy.Finance does not own user funds staked in vaults. Therefore, users could always withdraw from a vault at any moment in time.

The above picture is illustrative of a different set of vaults that exist on Beefy Finance.  For example, if you own the STARS-BNB LP token and stake it on Beefy Finance, Beefy will provide you the pool with the best optimized yield. In this case, this vault gives you an impressive APY of 4,570% and daily APR of 2.15%.

Summarizing, vaults can:

Efficiently execute yield farming strategies.
Compound rewards into the initially deposited token amount.
Use any asset as liquidity.
Provide one asset as collateral for another.
Manage collateral at a safe level to mitigate liquidation.
Put any asset to work to generate a yield.
Reinvest earned profits.

After depositing tokens into a vault, the user is supplied with vault specific mooTokens which represent their share in the vault. For example, you receive mooBIFI tokens when depositing BIFI into the BIFI Maxi vault.

How are Vaults determined?

Anyone in the Cowmoonity can work together to build new strategies and submit them to governance for voting. Beefy’s team will look at vault requests via an official forum where anyone is free to submit requests.

The Vault Fee Structure

In Beefy, vaults will take 4.5% of the harvest rewards. This 4.5% profit will again be split up into the following categories:

Launch Pool

Beefy Launchpool is the initial vault offering through which Beefy promotes projects on Binance Smart Chain. It will boost certain vaults with the partner token in order to give the best APY to users.

Team

The BIFI team is anonymous. However, we have found two devs (total of 10 developers), which are "@superbeefyboy" and "@beefyfinance".

Investors

Since the BIFI Token Allocation only includes Beefy Team and the Pool’s Liquidity Providers.Therefore, this project has not raised any funds from early investors.

Because Beefy Finance launched on multichain, they have numerous partners on different ecosystems, of which the majority is AMM & DEX, where they have Liquidity Pool that Beefy currently integrates. Some of them are Qi Dao (Polygon), Beethoven (Fantom), BabySwap (Binance Smart Chain), etc.

Moreover, Beefy Finance also integrates with Trust Wallet, one of the most-used wallets, in order to increase their brand awareness
