I want to give you a breakdown of one of the most bullish plays in DeFi 2.0:


Too many DeFi people still think the concept is hard to understand.

Instead of telling them NGMI, we should strive to get everybody on board.

It's $TIME (🎩,🎩) for a THREAD

$TIME is a fork of the successful project @OlympusDAO ($OHM).

$TIME is on the Avalance network ($AVAX) founded by the chad, @danielesesta and his team.

Right now, you get 71,208% APY for staking $TIME.

Too good to be true?

Let's dig in!

Okey, but let's take one step back.

Why was $TIME created in the first place?

Dollar-pegged stablecoins have become an essential part of crypto due to their stability.

But the dollar is controlled by the US gov. and the FED.

This means a depreciation of USD also means a depreciation of these stablecoins.

The $TIME token aims to solve this by creating a non-pegged stablecoin.

Instead of being backed by $USD, the TIME token is instead backed by several assets ($MIM, $TIME-AVAX LP tokens ++).

This means that 1 $TIME has an intrinsic value that it can't fall below.

Right now the intrinsic value of $TIME is $1,138.

But the price is $8,350 which means it's trading at a 7.3x premium.

And why wouldn't the price be high if you can stake for 71K % APY?

Most cryptocurrencies have either an infinite supply cap, or a fixed supply.

Rebase tokens (like $TIME) are adjusted by an algorithm, either expanding or contracting the supply.

So if #BTC is digital gold, $TIME is algorithmic gold.

On Wonderland you can do 3 things:

1. Stake
2. Bond
3. Sell

Staking and minting are considered beneficial to the protocol, while selling is considered detrimental.

The best scenario is that we stake --> APY goes up
The worst scenario is when we sell --> APY goes down

The treasury balance of Wonderland increases when people purchase bonds

If the treasury increases, the intrinsic value ($1,138) goes up

If the treasury decreases, the intrinsic value goes down

You stake if the ROI for staking > mint
You bond if the ROI for staking < mint

If the market price of $TIME spikes up, the algorithm mints more $TIME.

If the market price of $TIME spikes down, the algorithm burns $TIME.

The incentives in this system are designed to make the protocol grow.

$TIME can't be evaluated by looking at market cap & charts.

Here is what people don't understand and why people think $TIME and @Wonderland_fi is a ponzi:

The APY for staking is 71,200%.

That would normally mean that if you had $1,000 today, you would have $712,000 in 1 year.

But that's not the case for $TIME.

Let me explain...

The APY is only telling you how much your $TIME balance will increase based on the minting schedule.

So if you buy 1 $TIME today you might have 712 $TIME tokens in 1 year, but there would probably also be many more $TIME tokens in circulation.

If the price of an $TIME continues to rise, you would see crazy returns.

And even if the price stays flat or drops some you’d see pretty great gains, since the additional number of $TIME you’re receiving may outpace the decreasing price.

Let's say you buy 1 TIME for $8,350 now and the market decides that in 1 year time, the intrinsic value of TIME will be $10.

Assuming a daily compound interest rate of 2%, your balance would grow to about 1377 TIME by the end of the year, which is worth around $13,770.

This is still a $5,420 profit (65% gain).

So the reason you are paying a 7.3x premium for $TIME now, is that you do it in exchange for a long-term benefit.

What will be the intrinsic value in 1 year? We don't know yet.

This is game theory and this is why I wanted to be a part of it.

Massive upside, but limited downside IMO.

How can the staking rewards have 71K % APY?

If the protocol fails to achieve a certain number of bond sales (depending on the number of $TIME staked), the APY of 71K% cannot be guaranteed.

In fact, you will see that the APY fluctuates quite a bit.

I remember the APY was around 30K% APY a month ago.

You've learned the basics, it's $TIME to learn staking:

1. Buy $AVAX
2. Connect your MM to Trader Joe
3. Buy $TIME with your $AVAX
4. Go to app.wonderland.money/stake#/stake
5. Stake your $TIME --> get MEMO

My brother @takegreenpill has a step by step🧡:

But as always it gets crazier in DeFi.

You're not happy with 71,000% APY, are you anon?

You may actually use leverage to your position to get more $TIME = more $TIME staked = potentially higher rewards (or loss).


1. Go to Borrow on Abracadabra

2. Go to "Wrap"
3. Wrap your MEMO into wMEMO
4. Change your wMEMO to the stablecoin $MIM
5. Use your $MIM to buy $TIME

Choose "Change leverage" and choose your risk level.

You may loop it 10x and you can choose your liquidation %.

Be careful. This may be a huge extra risk!

If the whole community lost their trust in $TIME there would only be the intrinsic value left.

My main concern is therefore a bank run (everybody gets out at the same time).

Other than that I feel this is huge gameplay and too big to sleep on.

This is not financial advice, but if you choose to try $TIME:

Start with a small amount in order to feel more comfortable.

See how it works.

If it feels okay, maybe buy some more.

If not, just get out.

Yes, $TIME may be risky.

But so is staying in fiat.

Staking $TIME is a huge asymmetrical bet, and every crypto portfolio should have at least a small exposure to the magic that happens in Wonderland.

Btw, here's a staking/minting calculator you can use:

A Stablecoin Overview Thread

Looking to spread your risk?

In this thread, I will show you places that you can gain passive income with APY ranging from:

-10% to 160% from stablecoins only.

I'll look at both decentralized and centralized exchanges.


1. Anchor Protocol

19.5% APY on $UST --> read my guide here:

You may increase your APY to 40-60% by using:

-Mirror Protocol --> read my guide here:

-Spectrum Protocol --> read my guide here:

Or if you're a degen you can use Anchor Protocol with leverage and get 160% on stablecoins!

This DeFi hack is probably my most popular thread, so check out how you can do it here:

I've covered Anchor Protocol in these 4 threads, so let's move on.

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 firstπŸ‘†

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 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 onπŸ‘‡

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.

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 πŸ‘‡πŸš¨

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.
