Yields & Points Aggregation

On-chain Yields

Marked by Ethereum’s successful transition from Proof-of-Work (”PoW”) to Proof-of-Stake (”PoS”), we are witnessing the birth of a robust on-chain yield market, and the explosion of yield-bearing assets leveraging multiple sources of yields on-chain, including staking & re-staking yields, lending yields, RWA yields, and their combinations.

For example, Ethena provides a combination of yields from:

  • Ethereum PoS yield

  • Lending yield from funding perpetual futures positions

A lot of Defi projects are coming up with yield vaults to aggregate multiple sources of yields.

Airdrops and Points Are Another Source of Yield

In addition, more and more projects are adopting airdrop and point systems to reward early eco-system contributors. The Points are expected to turn into tokens after their TGE.

For example, Eigenlayer Restakers via Ether.Fi have received multiple rounds of airdrops, including:

  • Altlayer Airdrop

  • Omni Airdrop

  • Ether.Fi Airdrop Season 1

  • Eigen Stakedrop Season 1

  • And more AVSs (Actively Validated Services powered by Eigenlayer) are expected to provide rewards to restakers in the future

Thus the airdrops and points create another source of meaningful yield for Latch users.

All-in-One APY Aggregation

While all these yields, airdrops, and points are great, it could be troublesome to track, manage and calculate. Latch helps you aggregate all of them in one place, to track and manage your overall returns easily.

Latch also helps you calculate the overall expected APY, factoring into points and future airdrops, by sourcing pre-market trading data from leading platforms (e.g. Pendle).

Once the airdrop points have turned into claimable tokens, you will have the option to simply add the airdrops to your Latch balance, or to claim the tokens to your wallet.
