🎅 To Humble Farmers across all of the DeFi lands and world,

🎉 Harvest Finance would like to wish you and your family a very happy holiday season! Here at Harvest, we aim to do the hardWork so that humble farmers everywhere can take the time to vacation and spend time with their family — a true form of 🌿 420 and ♋ 69.

🎯 As we continue to reflect on all that has happened this year, our mission remains the same: automatically discover and farm the highest yields in DeFi. It is even more true during the holiday season when there might be other priorities than looking for the juiciest crops.

🤝 In addition to another amazing UI holiday update from our community, we’re excited to be working closer with collaborators such as Dharma who is building the Robinhood for Crypto. We look forward to more collaborations similar to this and our Hoo listing in the new year. Read on to see what’s been going on!


👨‍🏫 Harvest 101: Understanding Profit Share

Image for post

👂 The community has spoken and we are listening! After gathering extensive feedback from our community managers, moderators, and collaborators, Harvest has created an easy to understand guide on the dynamics of Harvest’s revenue generating platform and its profit share pool. The Harvest Cooperative is the first aggregator of its kind to reward its farmers with profits from the farming done. Dive in deeper here!


🎤 AMAs and Podcasts

📹 After collecting all of your questions via Reddit, Harvest met with our friend @GabrielHaines last week for a live stream AMA to spread more knowledge and provide more #BreadForThePeople. It was a great time, and an excellent source of info about what Harvest is and where it’s headed. Don’t worry if you missed the stream, you can click here for a replay!

🥖 And what better way to maximize shouts of #BreadForThePeople? How about appearing on one of cryptos most popular video podcasts, Meet the Nation by our good friends at Bankless! We continued talking up the theme of what makes Harvest so special and different from other projects, and that’s you our community, who contribute so much to the on-going success of the farmlands.

📈 But wait, there’s more! Recently FARM was listed on, a decentralized exchange, and our community manager ‘JB87’ was invited to their Telegram chat for an AMA with their users, many of whom may have never heard of Harvest Finance or the 30% profit share associated with the FARM token. We love these opportunities, so please let us know if you see a project looking to collaborate with a group of hardworking and humble farmers.

🧠 Similar to the creative and artistic skills of our amazing community, we also have stellar technical farmers and builders in our midst. Equally as important as our memes and psyops capabilities, our technical talent has created seamless experiences that make our industrial farming easier and more efficient.

🥇 1st Place Winners:

🤩 We had two submissions that were so great we awarded both 1st place!

⚙️ Our humble farmer affaxltd built a universal converter of tokens across dexes while farmer69420 wrote a utility contract that allows depositing base assets into curve pools and then to Harvest. Without these two contributions, farmers would have to manually do these tasks themselves. With the contributions from affaxltd and farmer69420, we save farmers gas and time by automatically doing it.

🥉 3rd Place Winner:

Third place goes to codinmaster! Farmer codinmaster was also able to make depositing base assets a lot easier for farmers.

Congratulations to all the submissions out there! We will continue to have more jobs coming up paying out rewards! Be on the lookout for future bounties here!


🚜 FARMland Expansion

💱 In last week’s update we announced the listing of FARM on Poloniex, which was followed by the listing on Hoo Exchange. Now to make it even easier for users to participate in the Harvest Finance profit share, the awesome team at Dharma has made it so anyone can buy FARM using fiat from a U.S Bank account. Quick and easy without needing to make multiple swaps, Dharma is a great fit for Harvest’s initiative to be a ‘one click’ investing solution for the mainstream.
