In this article, I will introduce you to Penguin Finance, including the following information:

  • What is Penguin Finance and the PEFI token? How does it work?
  • Specific details about PEFI token and it’s tokenomic including its up-to-date price, key metrics, distribution and use cases.
  • How to get a PEFI? Where to store it?
  • Penguin Finance’s roadmap and updates & details about team, investors and partners.

What is Penguin Finance? 

Penguin Finance is a DeFi project developed on the basis of the Avalanche C - Chain network. In the early stage, the development team focused mainly on Yield Farming products based on Pangolin’s liquidity pool, one of the first Avalanche-based AMM DEX. In the future, Penguin Finance’s Yield Farming can operate on other AMM DEX like Trader Joe or Lydia. 

Penguin Finance is currently in its early stages of development and the project will grow stronger in the DeFi segment with applications such as the Prediction market, NFT + DeFi. 

What is PEFI token?

PEFI serves as a utility token, PEFI holders can stake their tokens to receive staking rewards and fees collected by applications within the Penguin Finance Ecosystem.

How does Penguin Finance work?

Penguin, at the moment, is quite confident that they are providing a more attractive incentive level than the common ground. Besides the ordinary LP stake, Penguin Finance also has Auto-compound, which is a high-performance yield farm utility for the user.

The Deflation Token mechanism is also a bright spot in the way the project works. With the project focusing quite strongly on having a more attractive incentive than other projects, having a deflation mechanism is a wise choice to keep the token price stable. Specifically, if users unstake from the pool early, it will result in a penalty fee and this penalty token will be burned, which is very effective in keeping the project's TVL stable.

The project has bright spots from quite innovative products such as Prediction Market, Competition and NFTs. With the NFTs trend showing signs of heating up recently, plus Penguin Finance aims to combine DeFi + NFTs, this is also a notable highlight of the project.

PEFI Token Allocation

PEFI allocation

Yield farming and staking are the core user-attracting activities of the project; therefore allocating 50% of the total supply for the incentive bonus is an understandable decision.

Another large part of PEFI's allocation is for airdrops to reach more users. According to the project's plan, 25% of the total supply will be distributed in several small key strategic distributions within a time span of 3 years. 

This is a relatively reasonable approach, dividing the distributions and the time frame is long enough to help protect the token price from a supply shock.

In the token allocation of the project, there is no part used for presale activities.

Project Roadmap

Until now, the project has not given a specific schedule for their activities, so we can only know that in the second half of the year, the project will try to accomplish the following objectives:

  • Igloos & Nests V2.
  • Club Penguin.
  • Penguin Arena.
  • Next-gen NFTs.
  • Penguin Finance Merchandise.
  • CEX Listings.
  • Bridging to other chains & mass onboarding.
  • Prediction Markets.
  • Penguin DAO Launch.

It can be seen that the project will have significant strategic goals in the near future. 

  • The first important point is that the launch of special Defi activities such as Club Penguin, Penguin Arena and NFT will help the project stand out and separate itself from other yield farm projects in the market.
  • The second thing of interest is that the project begins to expand to other chains. This is good news for the development of the project, if this goal can be achieved, the ability to reach users will be more vital.

Similar Projects

  • Similar projects on Avalanche: Yield Yak, Snowball.
  • Similar projects on other chains: Solfarm, Yearn Finance.

Currently, 3 projects in Yield Farming are at the top of projects with the largest TVL in the Avalanche ecosystem. While writing this article, Penguin Finance has ceded its position in the top 5 to Snowball. 

Currently, Yield YAK's TVL is 3 times more than the total TVL of Penguin and Snowball combined, showing Yield Yak's superior position. The main reason for this is that currently, the Farming mechanism of Penguin and Snowball can only access the Liquidity Pool on Pangolin (and Pangolin recently lost its leading AMM DEX position to Trader Joe), while Yield Yak has reached out to many other projects in the Avalanche ecosystem.

Is PEFI a good investment?

I hope that you have understood what Penguin Finance is and how Penguin Finance operates with the information mentioned above. This article should give you a deep insight into the project, so there is no financial advice. You should Do Your Own Research before conducting any investment and be responsible for your own fund. 

However, Coin98 will provide some notable points about the project to give you the best overview to make your own decisions.

Penguin Finance is in the group of projects with the highest TVL in Avalanche, so when this ecosystem develops, the top projects will surely attract excellent cash flow.

The Yield Farming segment of Penguin Finance has an attractive advantage with the project’s incentive. Moreover, Yield Farming is an essential piece of the next AMM in the DeFi space, so a project specializing in Yield farms like Penguin Finance will have more potential in the long term.

The future of NFT that the project is aiming for, if successful, will be outstanding. The NFT + DeFi model is a breakthrough in the market, which will enormously help to attract users.

When looking for information, it can be seen that the project currently does not have a clear specific plan with their development steps; this is something that we should pay attention to. Now, the project is slightly incompetent to it’s rivals; all of the confidence is based on the potential. However, the potential is also the risk because the outcome will be awful if the project's development process doesn’t go as planned.

Currently, Penguin Finance’s Pool Farms are only used from Pangolin, limiting the farming option and making the project lose competitive advantage to another competitor in this segment on the Avalanche ecosystem, Yield Yak. However, the project's pool farms will soon expand to other DEXs in the Avalanche ecosystem, such as Trader Joe and Lydia


Penguin products are pretty innovative. The successful combination of NFT + DeFi in the short term and opening more Pool Farms from projects other than Pangolin will increase the transaction volume and Fee for the platform. Along with the Deflation mechanism, the Token price will benefit greatly.
