Why you NEED to start farming DPI on Harvest Finance. #CropSpotter

So you’re looking for a good pool to farm on? Well Harvest Finance has got you covered. The pool I have got my heart set on, and for good reason, is the DPI-ETH strategy on Harvest Finance.

What is Defi Pulse Index?

Defi Pulse Index, also known as DPI as its ticker, is a token based on Ethereum. It’s created by Token Sets. Defi Pulse Index tracks the performance of DeFi assets on the market.


The DeFi Pulse Index is a digital asset index designed to track tokens’ performance within the Decentralized Finance industry. The index is weighted based on the value of each token’s circulating supply. The DeFi Pulse Index aims to track projects in Decentralized Finance that have significant usage and show a commitment to ongoing maintenance and development.



Make sure you know the risks with DeFI. Smart Contract exploits (rugpulls, rapid minting of tokens, rugpulls), impermanent loss, Fake Tokens, Phishing Scams and fake DEX’s and Sites, etc. DYOR!

How to get started

If I was rich enough to afford the ridiculous gas fees on Ethereum, I would have gladly shown you how to do this with real money, but since I can’t I will still show it to you but without that. Should be the same thing though. 


The ETH-DPI Liquidity Pool is on Uniswap, so go to https://app.uniswap.org/#/swap and make sure to bookmark it so you know it's the real one!


Step 1: 

If you have enough DPI and ETH to start then this step does not apply to you. However, if you don't have DPI and just ETH. You need to swap some of that ETH (or whatever token) in your wallet for DPI. 

Go to: https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/defipulse-index and then copy the contract address. This is so you know that you are 100 % swapping for the right token and not a fake ERC-20 token. This happens a lot.

Click Select a token, then insert that contract address you just copied from Coingecko and it should look like this:


Click Import, and you should see a screen popup:


As I mentioned before, fake Ethereum tokens can be created to imitate projects. So click the “I understand” and then click Import. Now, your screen should look like this:


Make sure to connect your wallet if you haven't already. 


If you haven't swapped for this pair before you will have to approve the smart contract, and then swap. Both of these cost gas, so make sure you have enough gas, for both of these transactions.

Congratulations! You have now swapped for DPI! Now it’s time to add liquidity.

Step 2: 

Now it’s time to add liquidity! Go to the Pool page of Uniswap at the top left of your screen or just click here: https://app.uniswap.org/#/pool


Click add liquidity, and insert the DPI contract address or search for DPI and Ethereum. 

Now add however many of the DPI and ETH tokens in it. Tip: Make sure you have enough gas for like 5 more transactions, because it gets intense soon.


Yours should look like this! You will have to approve your ETH Contract and your DPI Contract again, just like when you swapped. After you have paid for both transactions you are done with Step 2! Finally. When both transactions confirm you will now receive ETH-DPI LP tokens.

Step 3: 

Now that you have your ETH-DPI tokens and have spent a lot on gas fees, go to Harvest.Finance and stake those lovely ETH-DPI tokens at 46.85 % APY (at the time of writing this)


Why should you put your money into the DPI-ETH strategy?

I’m glad you asked! Well, DPI is short for Defi Pulse Index, this coin is provided by Token Sets. Defi Pulse tracks the rankings and analytics for the top DeFi projects. https://defipulse.com/

Defi Pulse Index, includes multiple popular coins that have been gamechangers in DeFi. As of the time of writing there is:

- 0.226269 AAVE TOKEN

- 5.24827 UNISWAP


- 0.016625 MAKER

- 0.076752 COMPOUND

- 0.000553 YEARN.FINANCE

- 22.971029 LOOPRIN

- 16.238306 REN

- 0.199025 BALANCER


- 0.286472 META

Per DeFi Pulse Index Token.*


Or you can read it here: https://www.tokensets.com/portfolio/dpi


That isn't the only reason. DPI makes it easier than ever to dip your toes in the DeFi space without holding various tokens. DPI has had a very speedy increase in price due to the various tokens in this protocol going up. If you ask me I would rather hold DPI and ETH rather than just the one token. 


Who is this strategy for?

I would definitely recommend this strategy for a Bull, because it consists of Ethereum and a coin that mirrors various assets, it has a reasonable APY and I would definitely say this project is good for long term.

If we look at mine, you can see that I have $62.88 worth of assets in my wallet and $32.73 in Compound.finance. My initial investment of $8 worth of COMP is now worth $32.73 so that's amazing!

If you click on the wallet it will show you your assets.
