——
Jake Chervinsky, general counsel to Compound Labs, comes to the Bankless State of the Nation to talk about the inevitable war between nation-state regulators, and DeFi applications.

Jake thinks there’s a world where we’re forced to disclose every single wallet and financial transaction we ever make on Ethereum.

This seems like a direct attack on the Bankless Nation!

How to Buy the DeFi Pulse Index by TokenSets

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVou8QNABxE
๐Ÿ“บ This is a Bankless Tutorial powered by DeFi Dad. Subscribe to DeFi Tutorials by DeFi Dad on YouTube by going to: http://defidad.com/

TokenSets is a popular DeFi project that offers Sets (ERC20 tokens) which provide exposure to trading strategies, including social trading sets executed by human traders vs robo sets executed by hard coded strategies. TokenSets has partnered with DeFi Pulse to release a new Portfolio Set, which is a basket of the top 10 blue chip DeFi tokens, weighted by circulating supply x token price. This is a great way to gain exposure to the upside of DeFi without all the time and effort of buying, selling, and reallocating tokens in portfolio. With high gas prices, this also saves on lots of expensive transactions to trade the 10 underlying tokens.

DeFi Dad walks us through the following:
1๏ธโƒฃ What are TokenSets and how do they work
2๏ธโƒฃ How to buy the DeFi Pulse Index Set
3๏ธโƒฃ Recap of Risks

This is not financial advice and you should approach all DeFi applications, wallets, and protocols with caution. Please be aware there is always risk in using DeFi, including technical risks (ie smart contracts hacks), financial risks (ie liquidity crises), potentially admin risk (admin key compromise, governance vulnerabilities) and the risk of a pegged asset like a stablecoin failing. It is also risky to use leverage because you can amplify your losses with larger positions.

26 – Investing in DeFi Paradigms | Charlie Noyes

What are the paradigms for investing in DeFi?

Charlie is an exceptionally bright & thoughtful investor in crypto assets at Paradigm…one of the leading investment firms in the crypto space. We talk institutions, yield farming, and DeFi protocols…and then we get into one of our favorite subjects.

Is ETH money?

Or rather, does ETH need to be money in order to secure itself?

What is dirty little secret many Ethereans and Bitcoiners don’t admit? Why is moneyness and security two sides of the same coin? Why won’t transaction fees secure Bitcoin?

This episode goes from great…to amazing. You won’t find this depth of discussion anywhere else. Stay tuned to the very end to catch the conversation on economic security.

We cover:

Starting in crypto at age 11
Gen Z and crypto
How Institutions see crypto
Futility tokens are futile
Is Uniswap the last word on AMMs?
RAI vs DAI
Money gams & accounting tricks
Yield farming for yield farming sake
Why we’re not in a bubble yet
Why Ether has to be money (or bust)
Cosmos and Ethereum alternatives
Not bullish on Eth2 timeline
Join us next Monday for a fresh episode!

19 – DeFi vs Banks | Hasu

Hasu is a free-thinker. A truth seeker. A rare voice in crypto. He’s not afraid to push back on tribal dogma. He breaks rank with Bitcoiners on some topics and Ethereans on others. Yet he still considers himself a member of both tribes and respects the mysticism (and even dogma) of these deeply social systems.

In the spirit of Satoshi he’s pseudonymous. We don’t know his actual identity. But we know who he is from his body of writing that has influenced our thinking on many crypto topics.

What does he think about Ethereum?

About crypto banks?

About DeFi?

We covered it all:

– Hasu’s fave writers
– Body and Spirit of crypto networks
– Is Hasu an Etherean?
– Why Bitcoin might not survive
– How Maker is like a central bank
– Is EIP1559 bullish for ETH?
– The best Rick & Morty episode
– Join us next Monday for a fresh episode!

How to Farm Yield with Stablecoins Using Curve Finance

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGxTwm-rf1s
This video tutorial is about how to earn market-making fees as an LP (liquidity provider) in Curve. This is another example of how to “farm yield” in DeFi by depositing your stablecoins, letting others swap between the stablecoins in Curve, and earning a % of trade fees.

DeFi Dad walks us through the following:
🌀What is Curve and how does it work as a stablecoin DEX, earning yield for LPs (aka yield farmers)
🌀Which of the stablecoin pools might I choose to be an LP
🌀How to deposit stablecoins into a pool and become an LP
🌀How to withdraw stablecoins whenever you like
🌀The risks of being a Curve yield farmer

Curve Finance is a stablecoin DEX that allows traders to swap nearly 1:1 between the most liquid stablecoins on Ethereum: DAI, USDC, USDT, sUSD, BUSD, PAX, and BUSD. The goal of Curve is to provide permissionless trading of these stablecoins. You can imagine holding DAI, but wanting to trade into USDT to lend on Compound and earn COMP. You’d go to Curve first and swap DAI for USDT.

To learn more and try Curve yourself, go to: https://www.curve.fi/

So what do they see in our future?

Going Bankless with Compound | Robert Leshner

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rg4PF0z2dLU
Your savings account, your high-yield bank deposits, a CD. Can we replace these bank functions with a protocol?

Compound seems to think so. Compound is a two-sized money robot that provides borrowing and lending to create something new: interest. Learn what it does, why it’s powerful, and how it’s evolving as we talk with Robert Leshner. We even ask if there’s a way for the community to get its hand on some Comp tokens and start shaping the future of the protocol.

How to Use TokenSets as a DeFi Stop-Loss [video]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlNAkpy90Do
Learn about a concept DeFi Dad recently posted about where you’d use TokenSets as a DeFi stop-loss. The idea is that if you want exposure to a TokenSet trading strategy (ideally a Robo Set) and if that criteria for a rebalance from ETH to a stablecoin is nearly met, you can buy a Set like ETH 20 Moving Average Crossover Yield and allow the Set to act like a stop-loss, selling out of ETH if the price were to fall.

Be aware there’s always risk with smart contracts when you use a DeFi app like TokenSets and you should also think about the possibility that ETH could draw down in price, cause the Set to rebalance from 100% ETH to 100% cUSDC, and then move upwards before the Set can buy back ETH, meaning you’re now buying back ETH at a higher price. That being said, check out the historical performance of ETH20SMACO Yield by going to determine whether this might work for you. It’s much simpler than setting a stop-loss because you can leave your ETH in this Set in the hope it might outperform holding ETH.

Disclaimer & Risks: This is not financial advice and you should approach all DeFi applications with caution. TokenSets comes with smart contract risk and there’s no guarantee that putting your money into a Set will outperform simply holding ETH.

How to DAI-Cost-Average (DCA) into ETH Using dca.land

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSSlUYCo5OA
Learn about a new DeFi app to apply a dollar-cost-averaging strategy (DCA). DCA is a popular strategy where you invest a fixed amount regularly (ie. weekly/monthly) regardless of market conditions. Instead of having to trust an exchange or use dollars, we use a trustless application built on Ethereum called dca.land and we spend a fixed amount of DAI buying ETH.

Check out how DeFi Dad schedules dca.land to purchase 70 DAI of ETH every week!

*Just a reminder, this is not financial advice and you should approach all DeFi applications with caution. dca.land is a new application and its code has not been audited.
