Welcome everyone to another round of Akropolis weekly!

Product 🛠

  • We released a new UI/UX update!

    1. We added an animation on the vesting landing page, check it out here!

    2. We added a reload button and error details to the error curtain 🔄

    3. We added icons for triCrypto and crvIB (Iron Bank) tokens 💰

    4. Yearn recently announced that they are closing V1 vaults, so we have disabled deposits and will be removing them from the interface shortly.

      • Not to worry though, we will be adding additional V2 vaults to the UI!

  • Reminder that the compensation drop page is live! The page is visible only to wallets affected back in November - please go to this page to check.

    • The $AKRO drop only covers 50% of the exploit.

  • We are actively working on the Yearn affiliate program & delegated deposits.

Things still in the works:

  • [in progress] We continue to work on new vault strategies in house and hope to bring in new strategy makers. 🤑

  • BTC strategy on BSC is in the final testing stages - more details to follow

  • We’re continuing to research & work on strategies on Polygon.

  • We are working with existing Yearn community members in the YFI Boarding school! 🎓

  • Again, if you are an interested developer please reach out to us in our discord or telegram channels!!

  • [in progress] We are working on moving away from rewards distributions to users claiming them instead, thus removing the distribution threshold. You will be able to claim unlocked rewards once per two weeks.
