I've put $7000 into 7 DeFi Platforms [Week #2]

I've put $7000 into 7 DeFi Platforms [Week #2]

By Brawnd0 | CryptoLetter | 28 Jul 2020

Hey everyone. Two weeks ago I've put ~$7000 across various DeFi platforms depositing different types of assets. 

See my first post here.

First, I'll paste in a screenshot from my sheet and then explain what's been going on.


This screenshot slightly differs from the original one from the first week. 


  • Fixed ROI calculations
  • Total accumulated rewards in Week #2 include the amount from Week #1, and this pattern will continue


  • For now, I only track ROI in USD, however, I noted down the amounts of tokens I started with. I will include a bigger summary re; token % gain in Week #4 
  • There are 4 factors that are the result of the ROI: 1) price appreciation 2) supply appreciation 3) lending/LP fees 4) extra tokens from incentive programs
  • This experiment isn't made to show which platform is better/worse as I have chosen different asset types for each platform. It's obvious that these days token appreciation itself (ie. $LEND/Aave) will outperform stablecoin lending. 

Key Results:

  • Best ROI comes from AMPL, where most of the gain comes from daily rebases
  • KyberDAO entered the negative ROI, simply due to a token price decrease. I still can't claim rewards from staking it. 
  • Happy to see $7000 turning into a bit over $10,000 - I don't think tho it will continue to grow at this pace from now on

Any other interesting data you'd like me to pull off from my sheet? Let me know.
