As Bancor’s $FARM Pool surpasses Uniswap on liquidity depth, Harvest points its Buyback Mechanism to Bancor
Dear Farmers and Bancorians,
Today we have exciting news for both communities. Harvest has officially pointed its buyback mechanism over to Bancor. This results in constant buying pressure of the $FARM token, happening right at Bancor.
A short story on Harvest’s buyback mechanism:
For most farming strategies (vaults), Harvest Finance has a rule that 70% of profits go directly to stakers, with the remaining 30% going to FARM buyback. Harvest then uses that 30% to purchase $FARM on the open market.
Till now, Harvest was purchasing $FARM on Uniswap as it had the deepest $FARM liquidity pool. With Bancor’s Community effort (1, 2), Bancor’s $FARM / $BNT pool has become the deepest one, making it economically attractive for Harvest to switch over its buyback mechanism.
Harvest purchases $FARM from the open market, with trades frequently happening throughout the day.
Head over to the bottom of the farmdashboard.xyz to see all on-chain trades involving $FARM.
Buybacks on Uniswap have been marked by the 🚜 icon so far and in a few days, this tracker will also show buybacks on Bancor marked with that icon.
We are excited to see Bancor DAO succeeding on this mission.
