Here’s everything you need to know about Yield Farming on Binance…

What is Binance Smart Chain?

 

What is Yield Farming?

In DeFi, yield farming is the concept of making profit on your assets by placing them in interest generating DApps. Yield farming enables users to make passive income on their idle assets, by utilizing the decentralized ecosystem developed on Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, or any other smart blockchains. As a consequence, yield farming is changing how investors HODL in the future.

Yield farming often relies on liquidity pools. Asset holders can provide their liquidity to lending platforms or Decentralized Exchanges (DEX). In return, the liquidity providers earn interest in the form of fees, generated when others access their funds to borrow or exchange tokens.

 

What is Binance Launchpool and How to Yield Farm on Binance?

 

Launchpool allows Binance users to receive new coins in return for staking their BNB, BUSD, and ARPA on the Binance Smart Chain mainnet. The number of tokens users make each day is proportional to the number of tokens they have contributed to the pool vs the total amount of tokens contributed to the pool.

Launchpool will be used to list new tokens to Binance. Farming begins 7 days before the listing, and carries on for a total of 30 days. Farmed coins are paid out daily. The staked coins can be withdrawn at any given point during the 30 days. In this way, BNB, BUSD, and ARPA coin holders are the first to receive any new coins to be launched on Binance.
