Anchor Protocol’s Earn Rate Adjusts for the First Time, From 19.4 aan 18% APY

Following the governance vote that aimed to implement a semi-dynamic earn rate for the Anchor Protocol, the decentralized finance (defi) platform’s earn rate adjusted downward for the first time this month. After holding steady with a 19.4% annual percentage yield (APY) since the project started, Anchor Protocol’s earn rate is now roughly 18% APY for the month of May.

Defi Lending Protocol Anchor’s Earn Rate Adjusts Downward

The lending platform Anchor Protocol is the third-largest defi protocol today with $16.5 billion total value locked (TVL). Statistics show that during the last 30 dae, Anchor’s TVL has increased 9.25% since last month.

Around 45 days ago, the team behind the lending protocol aangekondig that a proposal had passed and the decentralized money market would have a fluctuating earn rate. Before the proposal, Anchor users who deposited terrausd (UST) would get a steady 19.4% APY earn rate on their UST deposits every month.

Anchor Protocol's Earn Rate Adjusts for the First Time, From 19.4 to 18% APY
Anchor Protocol’s current APY stats.

Since the governance vote passed, the first semi-dynamic adjustment took place at the start of May, and depositors today are getting roughly around 18% APY. Since the change took place, the earn rate can increase or decrease per period to 1.5% depending on the increase and decreases in yield reserves.

With the current 18% APY, the change means this month, depositors will be getting less than they used to get prior to the adjustment change. Furthermore, in June the earn rate could very well change again depending on the protocol’s yield reserves.

Anchor Protocol now supports two blockchains, as Avalanche support was recently implemented. While $16.27 billion stems from Terra-based tokens, $202.48 million worth of Anchor’s TVL is comprised of Avalanche-based tokens. Currently, there’s $2.9 billion that’s been borrowed from the Anchor Protocol in defi loans.

The Anchor earn rate fluctuation follows the recent defi forex reserve purchases made by the Luna Foundation Guard (LFG). The non-profit organization based in Singapore leverages the reserves to back terrausd (UST) and LFG holds 80,394 BTC miljoen op November $2.89 billion and $100 million in AVAX.

With Anchor Protocol changing its incentives to a semi-dynamic earn rate, it will be interesting to see if it affects the platform’s TVL, which has seen growth month after month. During the past 24 ure, Anchor’s TVL has dropped by 2.89% and this week it’s dipped by 0.66% in die afgelope sewe dae.
