At 17:00 UTC time on August 11, the DeFi project announced that it will soon launch YAM tokens. YAM borrows from YFI's distribution model, and distributes YAM tokens through eight mortgage pools (WETH, COMP, MKR, YFI, SNX, LEND, LINK, AMPL). The team does not reserve any tokens and distributes them completely to the community. , but the contract is not audited.

YAM’s staking pool generated more than $15,000 worth of transaction fees within a few hours of its launch.

Jinse Finance’s exclusive analysis of Paypal’s cautious attitude towards “competing products” has “objective reasons” and subjectively should seek a change: Paypal’s chief financial officer expressed “more caution” and “not interested” in cryptocurrencies in an interview, the objective reasons There is, and it is quite tenable-the volatility of cryptocurrencies is too strong, which indeed expresses the concerns of many people. But the objective reasons for the attitude towards cryptocurrencies may not be enough. Subjectively, Paypal has been challenged by cryptocurrencies. Compared with PayPal, the handling fee of cryptocurrency is almost "free". In this case, Paypal also modified its service policy to increase transaction fees, causing more users to turn to cryptocurrency. Paypal’s business growth also seems to be lagging behind cryptocurrency-related services. Previously, Square Cash, an encrypted currency mobile payment application developed by Square, grew faster than PayPal’s Venmo, which also confirms this. Facing the challenge of "competing products", improving the competitiveness of traditional payment companies is already an important issue in front of them. Although the popularity of cryptocurrencies is not high, traditional companies should also carry out or accelerate the strategic layout of blockchain to improve security. Significant improvements have been made in performance, speed, and reduction of intermediary costs. [2018/5/17]

Then the YAM price took off and rose to $150. However, at 18:00 UTC on August 12, was found to have a loophole in the elastic supply adjustment contract, which resulted in the minting of a large number of additional tokens during the elastic supply adjustment (rebase), and a total of about 700,000 US dollars of yCRV was locked. The team appeals to Yam token holders to vote through emergency proposals to fix the bug by entrusting Yam Finance. It is required to entrust about 160,000 YAM votes through until 7:00 am UTC time on August 13.

Because there are a lot of YAM in the Uniswap liquidity pool, they need to unstake and transfer, which causes Uniswap’s Ethereum fees to surge, reaching a small peak at 20:00 UTC on August 12, and reaching a peak around 7:00 UTC on August 13. highest value.

But YAM's problems don't stop there. Although the team successfully announced the submission of a governance proposal at 07:27 UTC on August 13 to fix the bug before rebase at 08:00. However, due to potential defects, at 08:00 UTC on August 13, the core developer of Yam Finance, belmore, announced on Twitter that the repair failed. Uniswap transaction fees started to drop after peaking.

If you stretch the time, you will find that Uniswap’s fees on August 12-13 have increased significantly compared to usual. Total Uniswap fees reached nearly $100,000 in an hour. Uniswap, on the other hand, had an hourly fee of less than $10,000 for most of July. the

The latest news is that the blockchain security company PeckShield officially completed the security audit of the YAM 2.0 migration smart contract on August 19. Yam Finance plans to migrate the YAM 1.0 contract to YAM 2.0, and the YAM tokens of the currency holders will be mapped 1:1, in preparation for the restart of YAM.

The madness brought by YAM and DeFi has made the total daily transaction fee of Ethereum exceed the historical high during the ICO period. People will naturally compare DeFi and ICO.

Unlike ICO, investors need to interact with complex DeFi smart contracts. This, coupled with high fees, makes it difficult for retail investors to participate in the DeFi boom. Ethereum must have a solution to reduce transaction fees, otherwise DeFi will become a whale game.
