Snowball Weekly Newsletter — 21/04/2022

Welcome to another weekly newsletter from Snowball! We’ve had many updates with regards to Snowball Earn, the direction we’re taking with future product launches, as well as a shiny new landing page to show off. Read all about these below:

BenQi Pools Update

With BenQi’s latest addition of native assets, such as USDC and USDT (different from the old bridged USDC.e and USDT.e we are all accustomed to), we now have new lending markets to fold and auto-compound our lineup of pools on Snowball Earn.

These new pools are currently yielding significantly more than their bridged counterparts; definitely worth to check out here.

We’re Evolving!

Our core strategist Jomari released a new article this week detailing some changes we’re making to our team. These include how we plan on organizing ourselves to maintain the projects we’ve launched thus far, as well as to continue pushing innovation into the Avalanche ecosystem.

There’s even some hidden alpha to be had in there. Check out the article here and feel free to reach to us through our community channels if you have questions about what’s to come!
