YIP-72 Passes!Yearn Finance Alpha: Budget Requests & V3Exploit on iEarnYearn’s Graphic Novel!Community and Ecosystem NewsyETH! YIP-72 Passes!veYFI voters have overwhelmingly voted ‘For’ the launch of yETH on the recent snapshot: YIP-72: Launch yETH! Going forward, holders of st-yETH will decide yETH’s future: “yETH is designed to be governed by its token holders who decide on assets to onboard and configure the protocol.”Attention fellow LSD Protocols: The yETH Proposal section, ‘yETH in a nutshell’ has a few points worth noting:yETH’s voting mechanisms encourage inclusivity of additional LSD’s for the yETH’s index, and is poised for the adoption of up to 5 LSDs upon launch (see section 5.4). If you’re a protocol that wants to take this trip with Yearn, all Protocols will have a chance at whitelist per Section 5 (and Section 3.2).How does yETH benefit st-yETH holders?Consider the bribe system for weighting. st-yETH holders get 90% of yield from eth staking, plus swap fees, plus bribe income, making yETH a premier staking derivative option.These features cultivate incentive and potential for other LSD’s to deploy their treasury assets into yETH for direct voting vs paying bribes, further encouraging scaling and investment into yETH. Realized gains, boosted adoption of their own LSD, and distribution of risk?
Moar, please!How does yETH benefit veYFI?yEth will benefit veYFI holders via Vault Performance Fees (10%), and 1% incentive rewards that go to Yearn Treasury, of which a portion are used for YFI buybacks, which is distributed to veYFI holders.

Unfortunately, some Curve pools (y, busd, pax) and v1 and v2 vaults where these LP tokens were deposited, were affected. Some important takeaways from the exploit:The impact constituted ~$11M in drained iearn tokens.iearn predated YFI. All unaudited content was removed from Yearn’s primary site in 2021. This included iearn and v1 vaults.Yearn keeps v1 and v2 sites active so that individuals may withdraw from older, deprecated pools.We highly recommend that you give this thread by Storm a read, as it provides a detailed perspective from inside the War Room, and a look into how teams handle these types of exploits:Although No Yearn Vault or Strategy code was exploited, it’s important to note that utilizing a Yearn vault to wrap a token does not protect you from an issue with the underlying token itself.No Reimbursement Plan has been announced.
More information will be shared when it becomes available.Friendly DeFi Reminder: Legacy contracts cannot be paused, so Users must self exit.
