Until recently, the powers of compounding interest were reserved for traditional finance. Now, using Beefy.Finance, you can use the power of compounding interest to increase the yield of your xMARK-USDC LP on the Polygon Network. DinoSwap.Exchange is currently the largest LP token farm for XMARK — USDC on Polygon.

● By compounding interest earned via farming directly into your xMARK-USDC LP, the interest earned grows exponentially.

● Beefy.Finance will autocompound xMARK-USDC LP by selling the DINO rewards earned from farming and selling it for more xMARK-USDC LP.

● Users who autocompound their rewards on Beefy.Finance will see massive gain to their harvests. At the time of writing, an improvement from 400% APY to 8,450% APY is possible.

Keep in mind that APY is variable and constantly changing

About Benchmark Protocol

Benchmark Protocol mitigates liquidation events and hedges risk with the MARK token; a supply elastic, stablecoin-alternative that connects traditional capital markets to DeFi. The protocol operates as a rules-based utility that dynamically adjusts supply based on the CBOE volatility index (VXX) and deviations from the target metric — equal to 1 Special Drawing Rights (SDR) unit. Employing the SDR creates a larger use case rather than exposure to just one currency; the application of this creates a larger user base and delineated exposure to markets around the world. The DeFi space needs a collateral utility that retains its efficacy and increases inherent, baseline liquidity during periods of high volatility. Benchmark is built on the Ethereum blockchain. The MARK token is the native asset in the Benchmark network and provides only the utility value available to it through the Benchmark network.
