Yearn Finance’s governance token YFI resumed its uptrend on Friday as traders assessed a high-profile investment into its asset management protocol.
On Wednesday, crypto firm Polychain Capital increased its exposure in the YFI market after buying another 141 tokens. According to Messari, the hedge fund had purchased 329 tokens last month, a move that gave it control of 1.6 percent of the total YFI supply, amounting to almost $8.5 million at this writing time.
The news prompted traders to increase their short-term upside bets in the YFI market. The YFI/USD exchange rate was trading at $17,781, up 16 percent on an intraday basis as of Friday. The pair’s gains also came as a part of a technical rebound that started last week when trading at $9,933.
