What if you could 2-3x your DeFi yield on stablecoins without using leverage?

Let's say you have $100K

Normally you would get 20% APY = $120K

But why not get 40-60% APY? = $140 - $160K

Too many people are sleeping on free $$$

Let me guide you through it step-by-step

To understand how this works, we have to say hello to the Terra Ecosystem and their protocols called @anchor_protocol & @mirror_protocol

You can read my full thread about Anchor Protocol here:

Read the thread about Anchor first, then move on👇

Now that you understand Anchor Protocol, it's time to learn about Mirror Protocol.

Mirror is a DeFi protocol that enables the creation of synthetic assets called Mirrored Assets (mAssets).

mAssets mimic the price behavior of real-world assets.



To just give you an example of mTSLA:

You can get 36% APY for just holding mTSLA in Mirror Protocol + the real-life price appreciation.

Imagine if you bought mTSLA when the price was approx. $550 in May (it's $1,077 now).

That's a 98% increase + your 36% APY!

Why would you own real stocks if you can own mirrored stocks and get paid big time for it?

I've sold all of my IRL stocks.

Anyway, let's move on.

Because what we want is to have a safe strategy that gives you great APY whether the mAsset goes up or down in price.

So how can you make sure you always win?


You go both long and short with equal amounts of money.

This wouldn't work at your stock broker, but let's look at the screenshot below.

If you wanted to go both long and short on Facebook, you would...

just need to buy equal amounts of FB-shares and get a guaranteed return of 30.5% (23% long / 38% short).

In fact, your return will increase to 41% in total and not 30.5% and I'll explain why very soon.

This is a step-by-step thread, so it's about time to guide you through

So to use this strategy you need $UST.

In this example, I use $100K as the total amount. But it works equally well with $100 in total.

Step 1: Create a Terra wallet: station.terra.money

Step 2: Buy $UST on Kucoin, Coinbase, Uniswap, or via Anchor Protocol

Step 3: Connect your wallet to Anchor Protocol

Step 4: Deposit 50% of your total in Anchor Protocol, in this example $50,000.

You'll now have 44,444 aUST (equals $50,000 UST since 1 aUST = 1.125 UST).

You'll see why aUST matter soon.

Step 6: Go to Mirror Protocol: terra.mirror.finance and connect your wallet

Step 7: Go to "Farm" and sort with APR. You'll quickly see that mTWTR gives the best total yield at the moment.

However, these rates can vary and what I like to do is to...

check mirrortracker.info/charts/histori…

Here you can see which assets that has a more stable APR.

It's worth mentioning that I myself prefer rather stable assets like big tech stocks and gold/silver due to less volatility.

I stay away from mAssets like RobinHood (mHOOD).

Step 8: Let's pick mTWTR.

We start this strategy by shorting Twitter.

In step 4 you deposited $50,000 into Anchor Protocol which equals 44,444 aUST.

The beauty of this is that you can use your aUST as collateral to short mTWTR instead of using $UST.

In other words we're going to short Twitter which gives you 41% APY!

Set your collateral ratio to 200%. This will give you 461,85 shares of mTWTR.

2 weeks later you'll get back $26,236 UST which you can...

deposit straight back into Anchor.

So in 2 weeks, you have $50,000 + $26,236 in Anchor working for you (yield upon yield)!

Step 9: You should still have 50,000 $UST in your wallet.

Buy 461.85 mTWTR-shares for $UST here: terra.mirror.finance/trade#buy

Congratulations, you're now delta neutral and it doesn't matter if the price goes up/down.

Step 10: But since we already own mTWTR, why not profit some more from it?

Let's enter the long farm for mTWTR to gain some extra APY.

Pair your 461.86 mTWTR-shares with 26,328 $UST and click confirm.

For those of you that feel this was too much math, don't fear.

Just enter all the numbers in this calculator and you will get everything you need:


Choose "File --> make a copy"

To summarize:

1. You have 100,000 $UST

2. 50,000 $UST goes into Anchor (44,444 aUST)

3. 44,444 aUST goes to shorting mTWTR

4. You buy equal amount of mTWTR (approx. 25,000 $UST

5. Your pair your long mTWTR with approx. 25,000 $UST

Let's look at your passive income 👇

Your first $50K in Anchor earns you 41% since you short mTWTR with these 50K through 44,444 aUST.

The next 50K $UST you'll earn 27%.

This means that you earn (41% + 27% / 2) = 34% APY

After 2 weeks you get back your short sell of $26,236 $UST which means...

that you've spent approx. $75K on this strategy (100K - 26K).

The 26K $UST you get back you just put back into Anchor Protocol and you can repeat what we've just done.

But since the initial capital decreases our yield increases from 34% to 45,33%.

If you've made it so far, you're going to be a winner in DeFi.

Maybe it seems complicated, but trust me it's way easier to do this than you think.

You just have to try.

So bookmark this thread and use it when you implement the strategy.

And to answer a question that I know will come:

"This strategy isn't new" - No, it isn't, but I believe more people should use it. I feel no one is talking about this, and they should.

Btw, you should look for long/short-farms that have over 20% APY. Why?


if the interest rate is below 20% you're better off with Anchor Protocol alone.

And if you want to do a delta neutral strategy and skip long-farming, just borrow the mAsset instead of buying it.

PS! I have not forgotten you that wait for the aUST-$MIM thread...

that will give you 160% APY by using leverage. I will update you asap on Twitter with a GIGA-thread!

@snor0105 Hey, @mirror_protocol

When will you integrate your mAssets with @NexusProtocol ?

Yesterday I posted a thread called:

"What if you could 2-3x your DeFi yield on stablecoins without using leverage?"

I forgot to mention that you can improve your gains even more by using @SpecProtocol !

+I want to talk a little bit about risks

Ready to earn more $$$?

In case you missed the thread, here it is:

Make sure you read that one first👆

Just to clarify yesterday's thread, what I actually described was 2 different strategies:

1. Delta Neutral (no IL)
2. Delta Neutral Yield Optimizer (IL may occur)

IL means impermanent loss and I'll get back to this later in the thread.

But for now, let's do a quick recap of the 2 different strategies:

Delta Neutral (no IL):

1. We start by depositing 50% on Anchor
2. Then we short the mAsset (eg. mTWTR) by using our aUST (44,4K)

What if I told you that it's possible to get 160% APY (yearly interest rate) on a stablecoin?

Let's say you have $100K.

One year later that would turn into $260,000 while you do nothing.

A deep dive into how you can do this yourself & how this is bullish for crypto.

Let me present Anchor Protocol which works as a savings bank.

You deposit the stablecoin $UST.

In return, you get a 19,5% interest rate.

$1 UST = $1 USD.

I've explained everything here:

But you wanted 160% APY, didn't you, anon?

Read on 👇🚨

When you deposit $UST on Anchor Protocol, you get aUST.

aUST is a yield-bearing-collateral.

1 aUST = 1.12 $UST

Back to our numbers.

If you have $100,000 $UST and deposit this on @anchor_protocol, you'll get 89,286 aUST back.

So how do you go from 19,5% to 160% APY?

I deposited $216,000 into Anchor Protocol.

A thread that will give you a deep dive into how a crypto savings account can generate $3,500 passive income per month (19,5% APY).

Earlier on I’ve heard about people receiving 10-12% APY on stablecoins.

In my mind that sounded awesome.

If you’re a hardcore crypto-dude reading this, remember I made my wealth in the stock market where 10% per year is what’s expected long-term.

As I started to dig deeper into stablecoins I found Anchor Protocol which is a part of the Terra Ecosystem (the biggest coin per market cap is $LUNA).

Anchor Protocol is a protocol that promises a stable savings rate between 19-20% per year on their own stablecoin $UST.

I reached financial independence and quit my 9-5 job this week at 33 years old to work with my own projects.

A thread with lessons about:

One day in 2018 when I was in my 9-5 cubicle, I thought to myself while I stared out of the window:

How could I continue waking up every morning and be totally unexcited about everything I was going to do day after day?

This led me to Google:

“How to quit my job forever”.
You know the rest of the story.

Early Retirement Extreme and Mr. Money Mustache are the first pages popping up.

I read everything in a couple of days.

There was really no way back.

WTF, could I quit my job in a couple of years by investing?
