But first of all, what is Farming?
Farming, also known as Yield Farming, is a term that refers to users trying to generate as much profit as possible from their crypto assets by providing liquidity to DeFi protocols.
In the concept of Yield Farming, Liquidity Providers will supply a pair of tokens in the Liquidity Pool and receive a special token call as an LP token in return, to know how much liquidity they have added to the pool. A liquidity pool is simply a smart contract that contains tokens in it. These pools allow users to borrow, lend or trade between tokens. By doing so, they are going to earn passive income from transaction fees, and interest from lenders. Users can even stake Liquidity Pool tokens to earn extra yield. Extra yield is frequently distributed by local tokens of DeFi protocols. In previous articles, we mentioned How to farm on Trader Joe.
