Episode 192: The Evolution of Yearn with Tracheopteryx and Facu

This week, Anna and Tarun host Tracheopteryx and Facu, two core devs at Yearn.finance, to take an introductory dive into the past and present of Yearn.

Starting from Yearn’s spontaneous assembly in the Summer of DeFi (2020), Trach & Facu tell their personal stories of how they joined the project and where it got to since. The conversation then moves into the yDAO and its current “Constrained Delegation” model, the “nebulous” concept of Yearn products, the mergers, Andre Cronje’s role in the project and much more.

Thank you to this week’s sponsor, Mina Protocol!

Mina is a layer-one protocol, creating a private gateway between the real world and crypto. The entire chain is around 22kb — even as it scales, thanks to zk-SNARKs,

This protocol replaces the traditional blockchain with a zero-knowledge proof, ensuring a super-light and constant sized chain that allows participants to quickly sync and verify the network.
And snark-powered dapps, called Snapps, allow access to verified real world data from any website for on-chain use.
The ecosystem is growing fast and the mainnet is live – visit minaprotocol.com to find out more.
