Anchor protocol

Anchor is the biggest savings protocol in Terra, with a TVL of 16 billion. Anchor’s deposit side allows users to deposit UST for a yield of roughly 20%. In contrast to other Defi protocols, the yield provided by the anchor is in UST itself and does not fluctuate.

Anchor provides depositors with these stable yields using a combination of different things. The interest rate from the borrowing side, the yield from staked bAssets such as bLuna and bETH, and the yield reserves.

Anchor was giving out this consistent yield for the past year, and on its birthday, it announced they are going cross-chain to Avalanche.
