Why It Matters: Yearn.finance is an aggregator service for decentralized finance (DeFi) investors, using automation to allow them to maximize profits from yield farming.
The project — formerly known as iEarn — is the brainchild of Andre Cronjewho recently announced his departure from DeFi.
Yearn.finance on Tuesday retweeted a post that noted the project has generated more than $100 million in revenue despite Crone’s departure from the project a year ago.
Andre Cronje left Yearn over a year ago, and since then the project has generated $100m+ in revenue and stood up profit sharing to partners.
Yearn is far bigger than any one person, thanks to Andre. https://t.co/TO51NvqqWT
