This week, we’re featuring the Yearn EUR Market Making pool, which generates yield from fees when traders swap between agEUR, EURT, and EURS stablecoins on Ethereum. agEUR is a synthetic version of Euro issued by Angle, while EURT and EURS are centralized stablecoins issued by Tether and Stasis. This pool can be a great way for you to retain exposure to Euros while also acting as a hedge against inflation.
