Curve Finance, which offers deep liquidity pools for trading pegged assets like sBTC and WBTC as well as stablecoins, just released its new governance token CRV. In light of this, DeFi Dad shows how he became a Curve LP earning the new CRV token, including how he considers lending idle assets with DeFi Score, how that leads him to a yield bouncer like yearn.finance, and why he eventually chose to deposit stablecoins in the Curve Y Pool (https://www.curve.fi/iearn/deposit).
DeFi Dad walks us through the following:
1️⃣ How to compare DeFi lending rates and why Curve Y made sense
2️⃣ How to deposit into the Curve Y Pool and become an LP
3️⃣ How to stake a Curve LP token and earn CRV
4️⃣ Recap of risks
