Yearn proposes “buyback and build” strategy for YFI holders


The Yearn.finance community is introducing a proposal to reform the current token economics of YFI. Popularly called “buyback and build,” the proposal aims to bolster the project’s treasury while also generating value for all stakeholders. Its list of authors includes Yearn core developers Banteg, Tracheopteryx and Lehnberg, as well as Gabriel Shapiro, partner at BSV Law and occasional Yearn contributor.

Currently, Yearn.finance uses a staking and dividends model. Holders must place their tokens in the yGov contract and receive a portion of the revenue generated by its yield strategies. This mechanism is somewhat similar to traditional dividends.

An alternative method of value capture used by some, like Maker, sees the protocol buyback tokens on the open market and then “burn” or retire them. This mechanism creates buying pressure on the token’s price, ideally resulting in a tight coupling between the protocol’s success and its token’s price — and finally, stakeholders’ wealth. This kind of strategy has gained significant prominence
