Alpha Homora Launch

Alpha Homora, which is on Ethereum, is a protocol for leveraging your position in yield farming pools. Alpha Homora is the only leveraged yield farming protocol available in DeFi.

ETH lenders can earn high interest on ETH, and yield farmers can get even higher farming APY from taking on leveraged yield farming positions. Currently, there are more than $5M total value locked on Alpha Homora.

Supported leveraged yield farming pools include

Uniswap

  • WETH / WBTC
  • WETH / USDC
  • WETH / USDT
  • WETH / DAI
  • WETH / YFI

IndexCoop

  • WETH / DPI

SushiSwap

  • WETH / SUSHI

Sneak Peek On The Next Alpha Product

Since Alpha Homora was launched, we were presented with many interesting opportunities to expand the usages of Alpha Homora even further.

One market opportunity that caught our attention is offering a market neutral leveraged position on Alpha Homora. However, instead of limiting to just ETH, which is what Alpha Homora is focused on, we expanded our analysis to building a product that offers leveraged positions on any asset - hence a perpetual swap product - that we plan to launch on both Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain.

For more details, see our full announcement here.

Looking Forward

While we are focusing our engineering and research resources on building the perpetual swap product, we will continue to add yield farming pools on Alpha Homora, drive usage of Alpha Homora, and market these unique use cases and features to the whole DeFi community.
