🌊 Deepsea Insights 🌏

With every Rotation, there’s always something interesting going on in the Orca ecosystem…
And this week, trading fees are dominating share of returns for our highest volume pools! That’s a good sign for LPs, earning them attractive yields primarily through trading activity.
Lastly, holding stablecoins? The Hedge and Hubble stable pools are offering attractive yields, but ensure you have ample collateral!
If a brave Shark dives into this Whirlpool and provides liquidity competitively, they stand the opportunity to earn a feast in trading fees! 🦈
