There is currently an overwhelming choice when it comes to decentralized finance protocols. One that has taken a slightly different approach to staking and yield farming is Prism Protocol.
Prism is a derivatives protocol that introduces new asset classes in DeFi. It essentially allows users to manage risks associated with volatility and unstable yields in a more capital-efficient manner.
Furthermore, the protocol lets users refract, or split, yield-bearing assets. This offers the following advantages:
- More leverage without liquidation risk
- Options to sell future yields for capital today
- Investing in future yield (lossless investing)
- More liquidity providing possibilities

The yield-bearing assets Prism uses is LUNA, which is split into two tokens, yLuna and pLuna. Yield LUNA (yLuna) represents the yield you get for staking LUNA, while Principle LUNA (pLuna) represents the LUNA itself.
A third token called cLuna is created which can be refracted into the two above.
Furthermore, users can do separate things with their refracted LUNA tokens. One option is to mint pLuna/PRISM liquidity provider tokens. Users can stake them into the DEX as they can with cLuna. PRISM is the native token for the Prism Protocol.
Staking yLuna in Prism Farm is another way to earn yields through PRISM tokens or associated airdrops.
PRISM can also be staked to earn xPrism to be used for additional strategies on the platform. The Terra stablecoin, UST, is another asset that can be used in Prism pools.
Additionally, various Prism Protocol pools were yielding between 5.3% and 14% at the time of writing. There was $619 million in total value locked across Prism vaults and pools according to the dashboard.
It takes 21 days to swap cLuna back into LUNA due to the unstaking period for the underlying LUNA.
ICYMI: @prism_protocol is badass. Refracted LUNA is the sh*t . . . 💯
Let them make your $LUNA work for you.
