Yield farming is a new investment structure that allows investors to earn interest on their crypto holdings. This ‘crypto holding’ is called stake, it’s a certain amount of crypto you lock up. This is quite similar to how you get interest on deposit from your savings at a traditional bank.
Crypto yield farming is a lending protocol that allows users to deposit cryptocurrencies into a lending contract and receive interest payments in return. The protocol uses a decentralized app (dApp), making it easier for users to find and use. Crypto yield farming is designed to provide an alternative to traditional banking services and help people earn money from their cryptocurrencies.

There are various types of yield farming;

  1. Liquidity Provider: In the DeFi space, coins are used as a form of liquidity. This allows for quick trades and the smooth functioning of the Defi network. People in the DeFi space provide their coins for the functioning of the liquidity pool. The usage of the DeFi network incurs fees from the users, and the fees are used to pay liquidity providers for staking their own tokens.
  2. Lending: This type of yield farming is done by investors who have tokens to lend; they lend out their crypto to traders by means of a smart contract to earn yields from interest paid on the loan.
  3. Borrowing: Literally, this sounds like a synonym for lending. However, in the crypto sphere this is different. In yield farming, investors can use a particular token as a collateral to get another token.
  4. Staking: There are basically two types of staking, first is the proof-of-stake on the blockchain. This type of staking, users are paid interest when they pledge their token to a blockchain to provide security. The second type of staking is when you stake tokens profited from supplying a DEX with liquidity. While there are risks associated with this type of yield farming, it has the potential to be very profitable.
