Are you tired of struggling to maximize your crypto assets' rewards and managing your investments? Look no further, because YieldVault is here to revolutionize the way you invest.
With YieldVault, you can deposit popular crypto tokens and earn attractive yields without any stress or complexity. Our platform is designed to take care of everything for you - so you can sit back and relax, knowing that your assets are in good hands and generating passive income for you.
What is YieldVault?
With the introduction of DeFiChain's DFIP #245, negative interest rates on DUSD stablecoin loans have been introduced. This has paved the way for YieldVault to take advantage of this unique opportunity to offer attractive rewards to Cake DeFi users. Essentially, YieldVault simplifies the process of earning negative interest rates on DeFiChain, making it easy for you to earn returns without a hassle.
One of the things that sets YieldVault apart from other competing yield generating products is that all transactions happen directly on the blockchain, so you can always verify what's happening with your investments. This level of transparency is crucial when it comes to investing, and we're committed to providing you with complete peace of mind.
How does YieldVault work?
YieldVault supports 5 tokens - BTC, ETH, USDT, USDC, and DFI (the same as the current Lending service, plus DFI as a new addition). Users only need to deposit one kind of token into the new product as collateral. The collateral that's taken as loans in the vault is DFI and another token.
If you invest other coins than DFI, DFI will also be deposited into the vault as collateral (50% of the collateral has to be in DFI based on the mandate to mint DUSD from a vault) – the user does not have to do anything as this is handled by Cake DeFi.
You may choose to receive the same type of cryptocurrency that you've allocated as your preferred payout (e.g., if you allocated BTC, you will receive rewards in BTC). However, to maximize your gains and generate competitive crypto rewards, you should choose Decentralized USD (DUSD) as your preferred rewards payout.
Also, it's important to stress that YieldVault is not a liquidity mining product meaning there is no risk of impermanent loss. Additionally, there is no counterparty risk, as your deposited assets are NOT loaned out to other users or institutional partners. YieldVault also offers higher APY rates than the current Lending service, making it a more obvious choice to generate passive income with.
How are the rewards generated?
Rewards are generated through minted DUSD from the vault, resulting in negative interest rates. Behind the scenes, the DUSD vault houses the collateral and mints new DUSD tokens. A bot will then swap the negatively earned DUSD into the collateral token and DFI (50% each). We would also like to express our gratitude to the community, particularly Kügi, whose script we are utilizing for our own YieldVault mechanism.
The swapped DUSD into the collateral token will be distributed to users as rewards. At launch, YieldVault is expected to offer an APY of up to 12% and will fluctuate with the negative interest rate. It's important to note that there are investment caps when allocating your coins to our YieldVault product. The following caps apply:
- 1000 BTC
- 5000 ETH
- 10 million USDC
- 10 million USDT
However, there is no cap on DFI. We highly recommend acting fast to take advantage of the attractive yields while simultaneously reducing your overall risk.

What are the risks?
YieldVault offers a unique opportunity to profit from negative interest rates on DeFiChain. However, as with any investment opportunity, there are risks involved. Firstly, there are no additional risks associated with receiving DUSD rewards since the product will auto-swap the minted currency. This means that users can earn rewards without any additional risks.
There are two major risks associated with YieldVault: liquidity risk and market risk. Liquidity risk refers to the possibility of vault liquidations, where a portion or all of the user's collateral may be liquidated due to unfavorable market conditions. While we take manual and automated measures to mitigate this risk, there is still a chance that it could (theoretically) occur.
A market risk refers to a potential price risk associated with the principal assets, particularly if Cake DeFi is a counterparty. This is a risk that is present in all investment opportunities, and it's important to keep in mind that the value of your investment can fluctuate.
It's also important to note that YieldVault will be updated or changed once the negative interest rates from DUSD loans stop. This means that the yield generated could be gradually reduced or converted into another yield-generating mechanism. While we do not foresee this to happen in the near future, users should exercise caution and stay informed on any changes or updates that may affect their investments.
