1/ In less than 3 weeks, $UMAMI's $USDC vault is already capped at $5.5M😳

Now, that's #RealYeild in action.

Umami Finance is pioneering the institutional adoption of DeFi.

A 🧵about @UmamiFinance and it's innovative PRODUCT.
2/ Here's what I'll cover:

- Overview
- USDC Vault
- Tokenomics
- Team
- Risk
3/ Overview

Umami Finance is a DeFi protocol that uses a delta-neutral strategy to collect yield from GLP and hedges it via @TracerDAO.

Umami's vaults are built using trustless, non-custodian smart contracts hosted on @arbitrum
4/ Their smart contracts have been audited by @ZOKYO_io. And they partnered with @riskharbor for the insurance of their vaults.
5/ Umami's treasury sits at $4.24M, excluding UMAMI and ARBIS token holdings as at end of June.

Most of which they use to tap into yield-producing opportunities, and partner with projects across @arbitrum

6/ USDC Vault

Umami's USDC vault consistently generates real yields by providing liquidity to $GMX leverage perpetual exchange while hedging market volatility.
7/ Generating #RealYield is at the core of Umami's product strategy.

Reason why their $USDC, and upcoming BTC & ETH vaults do not rely on shiny incentives schemes to generate yields.

Rather, they depend on sustainable on-chain revenue streams.
8/ How does USDC Vault work?

When a user deposits $USDC in Umami's USDC vault, they receive $glpUSDC as a fungible receipt token.

The $USDC is then used to mint $GLP (the GMX liquidity provider token), and hedges Tracer's derivatives $3S-BTC/USD+USDC and $3S-ETH/USD+USDC.
9/ $GLP get ETH yields from exchange fees and trader liquidations. Also, it collects $esGMX rewards for additional $ETH yield staked by the USDC vault.

The vault rebounds every 9 hours with the aim of hitting as much delta-neutral exposure as possible.
10/ Tokenomics

- Max Supply: 1,000,000 UMAMI

It is worth noting that the $UMAMI token is not an emission token. It is a protocol governance and fee-generating token.

That said, no new tokens can be minted after it's max supply.
11/ Team

The team is led by @IntrinsicDeFi, alongside Michael E and Alex Golubitsky.

Followed by a cream of bright minds behind Umami's engineering, business, and ,marketing teams.
12/ Risks

The DeFi space is littered with opportunities and risks. It is worth acknowledging the risks.

- Market Risk: This one is general risk in crypto. If the market dips, Umami's will dip with it. Although Umami's treasury is aimed at achieving a 0.5 beta.
13/ That means, UMAMI should underperform on upward moves, and underperform on downward moves.
14/ Umami has been audited, which frees it from smart contract risks. And the Umami DAO is contracted alongside Umami Labs to provide oversight of its Gnosis Safes.

Typo* Overperform on download moves.

That is, If the price of Bitcoin goes up 1%, the value of Umami’s treasury should go up 0.5%. And vice versa,

1/ Velodrome recently surpassed a whopping $100M in TVL!

A fork of Solidly, Velodrome has morphed into a #DeFi sensation with phenomenal growth since its launch in May.

A 🧵about @VelodromeFi and why it's a BIG DEAL.
2/ Velodrome is an AMM built as a central trading and liquidity marketplace on the Optimism ecosystem.

It lets users securely trade digital assets with low slippage and low fees.

1/ Concentrator is arguably the most innovative #DeFi project on Ethereum.

It expands the Curve/Convex ecosystem by helping Convex farmers earn UP TO 50% more with less hassle and gas fees.

A🧵on @0xconcentrator & why its a goldmine. Image
2/ In simple terms, Concentrator is an innovative auto-compounding vault system that enables farmers to concentrate yields from multiple Convex vaults into cvxCRV.

It leverages auto-compounding to grow these returns.
3/ Most auto-compounders in DeFi are based on the Farm and Dump Principle, where users immediately dump their rewards after earnings.

However, Concentrator is leveraging Farm and Hold, by which users hold their rewards, and the system helps them get better returns.
