  • Frax; From Delphi Digital (1-2021): "Delphi Ventures has opted to farm the FRAX/USDC pool because we believe it may offer the best risk-adjusted return, even though the base yield is the lowest of the three currently. If the FXS price continues to rise, this strategy will benefit from the resulting higher yields. However, if the price of FXS falls significantly, our downside is capped since we’re staking stable exposure."
