Yield Farming Sector up 8% according to CryptoSlate data
The market sector has seen big gains led by low-cap token Landshare, a DeFi protocol allowing investors to flip houses on-chain.
Yield farming platforms and protocols surged 8% over the last 24 hours, with a total sector market cap now north of $10 billion.
What are yield farming coins?
The yield farming token sector refers to a subset of the decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem that focuses on providing incentives to users for providing liquidity to various DeFi protocols.
Yield farming tokens are typically governance tokens that provide holders with voting rights and a share of the fees generated by the protocol. These tokens can be earned by staking or providing liquidity to various DeFi platforms, which in turn allows users to earn a yield on their investment.
The rally has benefited mid-cap tokens like Uniswap and Aave, up 3.7% and 4.3%, respectively, but it has not necessarily come from them.
Up much more are lower-cap tokens like Landshare.
House flipping on-chain
The sector rally appears to be mostly led by the newly launched project Landshare, a token fully integrated with the Binance Smart Chain, which has surged +44% in the last 24 hours.
The project allows for tokenized real estate assets to be flipped on-chain, a platform that merges the capabilities of DeFi and real estate investment, a platform that offers direct exposure to assets on-chain like Tokenized Assets and Crowdfunded House Flipping.
