DeFi Slate Fam:

Navigating Avalanche Rush so far has been well exactly that, a rush. A mania of sorts fueled by speculators hungry for yield amidst the recent crypto dump. 

“When you’re the first wave, the charts don’t matter” is a tweet I saw on Twitter earlier this week referencing the current yield farming craze on Avalanche.

Leading the charge seems to be this new lending and borrowing protocol Benqi with token $QI.

They are the first lending and borrowing protocol to really hit the scene on Avalanche.

Token is up 500%+ while the protocol has $1B+ TVL and borrowers are getting paid to borrow.

Interesting right? Feels like DeFi 2020 again. However, thats the difference. It isn’t 2020 anymore. Yield farmers are smarter, and processes are *slightly* harder.

For example, the Avalanche Bridge is something that many are not yet comfortable with (We did a full blown tutorial recently here).

And adding a new RPC to your metamask isn’t something ALOT of people are used to. 

Well in todays video we set out to make the lending and borrowing process extremely simple for you by bringing on a new friend Luigi, the Head of DeFi at Avalabs, to explain how to use BENQI.

Welcome back to a fun, hot ball of yield farming madness. 

PLEASE be careful and responsible. 

We let you know about this because were active and others in the community are as well, but that doesn’t mean its your lottery ticket!
