Despite Short-Term Outlook, Yearn.finance’s (YFI) Macro Prospects are Ultra Bullish

Other 2020/10/16 23:00 by Cole Petersen

Yearn.finance’s short-term outlook has been grave, with bears being in full control of its price action as buying pressure begins drying up.

The cryptocurrency’s recent descent has come about due to a myriad of different factors, including heightened founder risk, a fractured community, as well as the overall downturn in the DeFi sector.

Additionally, relatively low rates being provided to liquidity providers has caused the yVaults to see incredibly low usage, which has also struck a blow to the embattled Yearn ecosystem.

Analysts are now noting that despite the short-term outlook of YFI being somewhat grave, there’s still a strong bull case to be made for its macro outlook.

One analyst compared the money locked within DeFi to that locked within traditional finance initiatives that provide yields on deposits, noting that the masses will likely eventually turn towards platforms like Yearn.finance (YFI) and Aave.

Yearn.finance Continues Drifting Lower as DeFi Downtrend Persists

At the time of writing, Yearn.finance’s YFI governance token is trading down nearly 3% at its current price of $14,200.

Yesterday, bulls attempted to reverse its downtrend when they pushed it up towards $16,000, but the immense selling pressure seen by the aggregated market due to funds being locked within OKEx struck a serious blow to its market structure.

It dropped as low as $13,600 before finding some support and is continuing to see some slight weakness today.

The entire DeFi market is continuing to struggle to gain momentum, as sellers have been in firm control of the aggregated market throughout the past few days and weeks.

Until this sector begins trending higher, there’s a strong possibility that further downside is imminent.

Traditional Investors Could Fuel a Macro Rise in YFI’s Price

One trader believes that although the Yearn.finance token’s short-term outlook is somewhat grave, its macro outlook is still bright.

He contends that the ultra-low yields in traditional finance will drive investors towards DeFi, which will primarily benefit Aave and YFI.

“In the U.S. alone, there’s about $5.04 trillion locked into accounts paying the astonishing yields shown below. Total crypto market cap = 1/13th that amount ($369.5 billion). We are where the masses soon will gather. Long AAVE. Long YFI.”

The Yearn ecosystem does have some stellar developers helping to push new products down the pipeline, which could help incubate further adoption that drives Yearn.finance’s YFI token price higher.
