Yield farming can be highly lucrative, but also very risky. The level of impermanent loss can discourage some users. Even with the heightened enthusiasm, the potential for waiting out impermanent loss or aggressive arbitrage is a risk that not all crypto owners are ready to take.
The right tokenomics model, however, can work to create a more stable distribution of wealth. Yield farming is the faster, riskier version of staking. But the concept of passive income may add to the appeal of tokens intended to be included in liquidity pools. We looked at several projects with outstanding tokenomics, which try to achieve better stability while also giving opportunities for yield farming.
Currently, multiple projects are attaching themselves to major algorithmic market-making platforms like Uniswap. But some token-based projects will attempt to differentiate from the multitude of assets created with the sole purpose of simple yield farming.
Wanchain was one of the older tokens, powered by an ICO fundraiser in late 2017. The WAN market price was severely affected by the hype and crash of late 2017, and went on to lose more than 90% of its value.
