After an exciting monthly community call, it is time to wrap up some of the events that took place this week for those unable to attend. Read all about what we’ve achieved this week below:

New Auto-Compounding Strategies

This week we’ve added 3 new Pangolin strategies to our wide array of options when it comes to Snowball Earn and the pools we offer. They are the following:

These 3 UST pools allow stablecoin fans on Avalanche to pick their preference; the UST-USDC pool can provide great yield with near-zero risk of impermanent loss, while the other two pools allow you to gain exposure to Avalanche’s native asset, or Pangolin’s very own governance token.

We also integrated Vector into Snowball Earn this week, which allows users to make the most out of the platform already building on top of Platypus’s pools. These contribute to some of the best stablecoin rates we have available, meaning you should definitely check out them out!

April Fools!

We had some fun with our April 1st post this year, and wanted to let everyone know that unequivocally, without a shadow of a doubt, this was a joke. Or was it?

In all seriousness, we do have some exciting updates in the works to further decentralize our pool harvesting process and thus increase the frequency of harvests, particularly on pools with a smaller amount of TVL. Some of this info was shared briefly during this month’s community call, so if you’d like more alpha like this make sure to tune in next time!

OpenSwap Partnership

This week we’ve partnered with OpenSwap to bring the SNOB token to new heights while aiding them in the creation of a more open, decentralized, and fluid multi-chain ecosystem. Read more about their platform and what this means for Snowball in our article here!
