The A-Z of (YFI) with veToken in sight

Share this article [YFI] vote-escrow model could be the upgrade that accelerates the DeFi project to value creation despite the market downturn.

According to Messari, the soon-to-be-launched vToken might help optimize the YFI earnings distribution protocol. The crypto intelligence platform explained that the upgrade if implemented, would improve the YFI network health.

Here’s AMBCrypto’s Price Prediction for YFI for 2023-2024

Despite some anticipation for the upgrade, YFI has achieved much per price. In the last 24 hours, YFI lost 2.50% of its value. According to CoinMarketCap, YFI was worth $7,465, at the time of this writing.

Can’t keep up here 

Notably, YFI recorded a 2.54% decline per exchange reserve. According to CryptoQuant, YFI’s exchange reserves were 6,600 at press time.

An assessment of the reserves showed the reserves had been decreasing since 26 June with no end in sight.

However, since the reserves were decreasing, it indicated that fewer YFI investors were selling their holdings. This has, however, not resulted in an opposite trend for the YFI price.

Furthermore, CryptQuant showed that the exchange netflow was at a 4.45% decrease from the previous day. Evidently, YFI was in an extremely volatile state.

There was increased selling pressure from the spot market. The implication of this would not mean good news for YFI investors as increased selling pressure could lead to more price decreases.

HODL still but…

However, the sell-offs did not seem to affect big-bag YFI HODLers. This was revealed by the status of the top 1% addresses. Based on Glassnode data, the YFI supply percentage held by the top 1% addresses remained constant at holding on to the 90% to 95% range. 

This could mean that the top YFI investors were confident of a price rise. While it might not happen soon, it was likely that they were holding for the long term.

With the veToken upgrade in sight, YFI’s development activity seemed to be in line with the protocol distribution. As of this writing, YFI’s development activity metric which had fallen to 3.02 as of 12 October was back up at 4.6.

Due to this increase, it was almost certain that the YFI team had the upgrades in motion. 

Moreover, YFI investors might not expect significant profits in the short term. This was because the Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) ratio was in decline mode.

At press time, the MVRV ratio was -7.27%. With its trend declining, investors might need to count on the vote-escrow and locking launch if there were to be any price uptick.
