C.R.E.A.M – Crypto Rules Everything Around Me
With the explosion of DeFi products, the C.R.E.A.M Finance ecosystem has attained significant popularity. Additionally, its core is forked over from DeFi protocols – Balancer and Compound. Launched on the 3rd of August this year, C.R.E.A.M Finance is the brainchild of Jeffrey Huang and was initially supposed to be launched on the Binance Smart Chain. However, it was deployed to Ethereum.
YFI’s Price Front:
Despite the fact that several DeFi tokens were on a bullish trend as Bitcoin and Ethereum breached several resistance levels, it was not the case with YFI. The token, which was already on a downtrend, suffered major blows when it neared $13,110. It is important to note that this coincided with the theft on Yearn.Finance Creator, Andre Cronje unaudited, and an incomplete project dubbed Eminence.
Blast from the past: In the last week of September, a vulnerability was exploited on Ethereum-based Eminence which enabled the hacker[s] to siphoned off $15 million. More recently, the victims who were affected by the case, started a crowdfunding campaign wherein they urged the supporters to donate ETH to an address they have set up to fund the lawsuit against Cronje. This further added to the woes of the governance token.
Back to the current price. A week after the lawsuit episode, YFI has sprung back up in action and the latest price action could have been triggered by the C.R.E.A.M Finance announcement. Over the past 24-hours, YFI noted a major 12.27% increase. At the time of writing, it was valued at $15,395 while it held a market cap of $461 million and a 24-hour trading volume of $2.496 billion. Additionally, YFI appeared to be heading for a potential breach of its immediate resistance of $16,000.
