Week 18 — See you in 2021! The Year of the Bull 🐃

By Farmer Chad | | 30 Dec 2020

🎄 We hope you had a great and merry Christmas filled with joy, ♋ 69 and 🌿 420. While 2020 has been a quirky year for many, our farming cooperative is gearing up to provide bountiful yields for 2021, the year of the bull 🐃.

⚙️ As we continue to see the money printer go brrrr, we will do our part to kick off the roaring 20s of crypto by continuing to compound and decentralize our industrial scale cooperative — Harvest will continue to work hard by generating the best yields for its humble farmers.

👪 Since many farmers are busy with spending quality time with their families, we will be keeping this week’s update concise and as digestible as a Christmas Hot Chocolate.

👇 Read on for our Week 18 Updates!


💹 Exchange Expansion

💱 While the holidays are typically a time to slow down, our rate of exchanges listings continue to speed up. This week, we are excited to announce FARM being added to the exchange TokenLon! As we frequently mention, we love our Chinese and Asian farmhands, and TokenLon is a reliable exchange in the region for all farmers to now participate in trading FARM!

🌃 The next Great Conjunction

🌠 Similar to the Christmas Star and the Great Conjunction that was seen globally last week, we are beginning a new era for farming and farmers everywhere. The last Great Conjunction most similar to last week occured in 1405 — it symbolized the end of Europe’s Dark Ages and the beginning of the Renaissance. We believe that we are entering a new period of stability and revival for crypto and hope our contributions will play a small part in the Renaissance of money.

🤗 While 2020 came with many surprises, we hope that uniting with other farmers was a silver lining for you and hope that you have found the Harvest community to be a rewarding endeavour. It has given us great joy meeting so many like-minded individuals and cannot wait to see what’s next for the FARM community in 2021.

👋 See you next year!
