The decentralized finance (DeFi) space has continued to grow exponentially, thanks to increasing global interest as well as important new updates.
To keep readers informed, we have listed some of the top DeFi updates of last week. Such DeFi updates include the yield farming program from TrustSwap and CREAM as well as Cardano recently completing its Alonzo upgrade.
1 – TrustSwap and CREAM Finance’s Yield Farming Program
Last week, TrustSwap, in conjunction with CREAM Finance, officially launched yet another yield farming program for SWAP token holders. YIELD is popularly known as a DeFi app specially designed to facilitate easy investment in the decentralized finance space using either crypto or fiat currencies. It is easy to use and requires little or no technological know-how.
The launch of the yield farming program is an exciting opportunity for yield hunters to increase their earnings.
