2021- the Year of the Metal Ox — is upon us, and it’s time to re-evaluate how the message of Harvest Finance is being delivered.

Yield farming has exploded in popularity over the last few months, but despite this, it’s still a relatively small niche in the wider cryptosphere. The concepts and processes that enable high APYs are complex and murky, so it’s not always easy for newcomers (or even old-hands) to understand what’s going on.

To help with our goal of making yield farming easy and accessible, we are asking our community to come up with a range of marketing materials that will help explain in a clear and concise manner how Harvest Finance works.

We value creativity, clarity and quality!

Things we are particularly interested in are:

Explainer Videos — short videos that explain how Harvest works and why it is an important piece of the defi puzzle.

Some ideas to get you started:

  • Noob tutorials explaining how to interact with the site , how to deposit , what is APY/APR etc.
  • What is Harvest Finance
  • Why farm at Harvest Finance?

Gabriel Haines put out a nice video a few months ago, but now it’s a little outdated (defi moves fast), so we need something fresh.

Infographics + Visuals — visual explanations of different process

Things we would like to see:

  • Explanations for the main features of Harvest
  • How profit share works (inc. compounding explanation)
  • How different strategies work
  • How emissions work
  • Timelock feature
  • DoHardWork
  • P/E ratio (with comparison where applicable to other projects?)

Here are some previous infographics created by humble farmers. Pretty slick — but can you do better?

Gabriel Haines strikes again!

Nice one Grimbles!

The creation of top-notch informative material forms Part 1 of the marketing contest. Once this stage has concluded, we will run Part 2, which involves spreading the knowledge to all corners of the cryptosphere!📣

We welcome and encourage organic marketing efforts spearheaded by our community of hard-working yield farmers. So if you have solid defi knowledge, understand how Harvest works, and can communicate this effectively, you will be rewarded for your efforts.
