Our featured pool this week is Yearn USD Market Making. This opportunity acts as a high-risk, savings account denominated in USD and works well for investors who want stablecoins pegged to USD. Risks include multiple smart contract dependencies and exposure to centralized fiat stablecoins. Your yield comes from earning protocol incentives and fees investors pay when trading between hyUSD and eUSD stablecoins on Ethereum. The yield can change depending on transaction volume and value.
