Total Volume + Fees
The L2s are heating up! Uniswap just announced that more than 2 million people have used Uniswap on Eth L2 chains. And the markets seem to be cooling off for a bit.
However trading volume But LP profits are still stable with the newly launched WETH/SatoshiVM pool garnering > $2.1 million in fees...with a lot of LPs making 5 figure APYs.
In other news @chef describes their tale of loosing $30k by depositing to an empty BONK/GECKO liquidity pool on Meteora (SOL) and getting arbitraged (rekt) by an MEV bot. It's a good cautionary tale to people looking to LP using two memecoins and not double checking everything you are doing.
Are you looking for more yield on your Uniswap V3 position but short on capital? Maybe your V3 position has been performing well and you want to double down on it? Or maybe you want to use your Uniswap position as collateral for loans?
Introducing: YLDR, a fast growing ecosystem for LP derivative markets, focusing on Uniswap V3 LP positions.
Leverage your LP Positions
Borrow assets using LP positions as collateral
Amplify Your LP Returns
With YLDR, you can now leverage your Uniswap V3 positions to amplify your returns and even make money arbitraging on market conditions based on which asset you borrow.
YLDR is a recently launched two-sided marketplace that is quickly gaining traction, already attracting over $260k in supplied assets collectively on ETH and Arbitrum.
YLDR's intuitive platform makes it easy for LPs to borrow particular assets in accordance to their concentrated Uniswap V3 position.
Arbitrum's low fees has made lending and borrowing appealing, with half of the supply on Arb already borrowed.
This allows you to deposit into relatively safe pools of stable pairs and leverage even more capital towards generating fees. Or place hedges against volatile assets to multiply the gains from the price difference.
YLDR determines a borrow and lending APY based on market demand and fluctuates based on availability of a particular asset.
For example at the time of writing, USDC fetches a very good APY for lenders but for borrowing, it is too expensive.
On the other hand, ETH offers a good borrow APY and is a good choice if you want to leverage for the ETH and Stable pairs pool.
With any market offering leverage, liquidation is important to keep in mind. It's important to limit and control exposure to not lose your position.
When you are about to take a leveraged positioned, YLDR gives a clear breakdown of your liquidation threshold as well as your borrow APY.
The APY on your borrowed assets is a key consideration, as an excessively high rate can erode profits and potentially even cause the position to lose money over time. So it's a good idea to keep a reasonable margin in your LTV and liquidity threshold while at the same time keeping an eye for the fee for borrowing an asset.
One think to consider here is that there is also an opportunity here to arbitrage your CL position based on the split of your provided liquidity, earning multiple times the fees & the price difference appreciation.
Strategies for Bullish or Bearish Outlooks
Let's say you are bullish on ETH and you want to leverage your ETH/USDC position.
If you think ETH will go up ⬆, and you have a position with 40% and 60% USDC, then you will slowly accumulate more ETH. And you also have leveraged your position 3x using YLDR borrowing only USDC.
Now when ETH goes up you make 3 times the rate for both fees and the underlying asset appreciation. And, remember here you borrowed only USDC from YLDR, which means that your borrowed asset has not appreciated
And if you think ETH will go down, you can hedge against ETH, by borrowing only in ETH on YLDR. Since the borrowed asset is down in USDC value, you can exit your position profitably.
Borrow and Supply assets
What's more is that YLDR also allows you to put your Uniswap V3 positions as collateral to borrow any standalone asset like USDT or ETH.
In addition to that, you can also be a supplier of an asset that provides the necessary funds to LPs for their leveraged positions. Depending on some factors, it could be a healthy APY.
Here is an example of the supplying and borrowing rates on YLDR. These can vary by a lot given market demand and supply.
There are quite a few factor when considering leveraging your Uniswap positions. And in certain cases where the market moves in your favor, leveraging your LP can be incredibly profitable. Head on over to their app and see which positions you can leverage and maybe even supply some of your assets to other LPs!
