Looking back on this year, Golff continued to make efforts in the business sector, from deploying a single-chain revenue aggregator on Ethereum to developing a multi-chain aggregation ecosystem.

The number of Golff Vaults has increased from 2 at the beginning to the existing 78, including 36 for the Heco version, 34 for the BSC version, and 8 for the ETH version. The ever-growing Golff continues to develop new DeFi strategy protocols, and at the same time, it continues to achieve higher returns for users.
A year without Slack, but safe and zero accidents
DeFi (decentralized finance) is open to everyone, removes middlemen in the financial system and brings a more convenient and faster financial experience. However, the outstanding security issues of smart contracts have become the biggest challenge in the DeFi industry, which inevitably causes users to worry and doubt.
For users, the most important thing is asset security. The Golff team attaches great importance to the safety of the product and the entire ecology. Golff upholds safety as the first principle. Over the past year, there have been zero accidents in safe operation, which effectively protects the interests of users.
The smart contracts of all Golff products have been audited by many security agencies including CertiK, ChainsGuard Technology, KnownSec, PeckShield, and BlockSec to ensure the safety of users’ funds. Golff and these security companies continue to maintain close contact and work together to create a better Defi security environment through friendly cooperation. Recently, Golff joined the CertiK Skynet scanning system, and obtained a comprehensive security score of 94, which is far ahead in the industry.
Golff will continue to serve users with the purpose of security and credibility, and create a DeFi aggregator platform that allows users to rest assured. Strive to create a light, open and free financial world.
Never forget the Vision, look to the future
Everything in the past is a prologue. In the past year, Golff has built a solid technical foundation from scratch, and has gained the friendship from the broad community of users. We dare not say how much we have changed, but because of you, we have grown a lot.
Next year, Golff will not forget our original goals and set off again. We will actively embrace the changes brought by DeFi and continue to make product breakthroughs. A more complete lending system, a richer income aggregation model, a more complete DAO governance model, and a richer Defi product form will all be our next year. Strive for goals. Wish Golff can become the best choice for everyone to enter the Defi world!
