Since setting its ATH price of $44.000, Yearn.finance price has corrected by 70%, falling below $14,000 earlier today
It’s been a tough past few weeks for the DeFi market, especially for coins like Yearn.finance’s YFI token and the Curve DAO Token. Since its all-time high price is $44,000, Yearn.finance price has corrected by 70%, falling below $14,000 earlier today.
Yearn.finance price could slip lower
After predicting the latest leg of the ongoing YFI prediction to $14,000, a trader asserted that the cryptocurrency is on its way to $12,000. As shown in the chart he shared below, YFI falling to $14,000 brings it under an important support level that is suggestive of a further decline to $12,000. The cryptocurrency dropping to $12,000 from current levels will mean it will need to correct 18%.

Despite the clear loss of momentum in the price of YFI, analysts remain more optimistic than ever about the project.
Andrew Kang, the founder of Mechanism Capital, recently noted that those that think Yearn.finance is now a valueless project due to declining yields are missing the forest for the tree. He highlighted that the project’s developers have a series of strategies to roll out that will allow it to generate relative value over other DeFi platforms.
The argument that YFI / Yearn value is dependant on crazy yields is missing the forest for the trees.
Yield opportunities continue to grow
– 10x-100x leveraged short DAI
– Basis/Funding trades
– UNI Farming
– BAL Farming
– L1/L2 Liquidity Bridging

This is Yearn.finance’s longer-term outlook. On a short-term basis, Yearn.finance developers have begun the development process for “v2 Vaults.” These new Vaults purportedly will be much more scalable and profitable than the previous iterations.
The launch of Vaults should allow more value to be put in the hands of YFI holders. This should entice investment in the cryptocurrency despite it already dropping over 65% from its all-time high set just weeks ago.
