What is Harvest Finance?

Harvest Finance is a yield farming aggregator. It works by letting users pool their funds together, which the protocol then invests into various yield farming strategies to get the best returns according to a pre-programmed strategy. It does so by automatically switching between various DeFi protocols, saving users the hassle of having to chase the highest paying strategies themselves. Doing so reduces gas fees for the individual, as well as helps deliver substantial returns without the need for constantly switching between farming protocols. FARM tokens can also be earned by simply using the platform and depositing various assets.

What to consider when buying Harvest Finance

Yield farming is a particularly high-risk part of the cryptocurrency ecosystem due to potential vulnerabilities in code or unscrupulous developers. This was highlighted in October 2020 when the Harvest Finance was the victim of a hack that saw $24 million stolen from the platform. Before buying FARM tokens, consider the following:
  • Counter-party risk: Harvest Finance is a yield aggregator, which means that it takes users funds and deposits them on various other platforms to earn interest. This means that users’ funds are exposed to several other platforms in addition to Harvest, which may have their own set of vulnerabilities and risks.
  • Competition: Yield aggregators have become a common part of the DeFi landscape, and the tokens associated with them can be highly lucrative. As such, many copycat aggregators have emerged looking to capitalise on the trend. Anyone considering buying FARM tokens should be aware of competitors such as Yearn Finance, 1INCH and Rari Capital.
  • Token supply: FARM tokens can be purchased on the open market or earned by using the platform. Tokens were first distributed on 3 September 2020 via an airdrop, which distributed roughly 180,000 tokens over four weeks. The total supply of tokens is capped at 690,420, which are planned to be distributed via protocol rewards over the first four years of operation.
