Cook Finance will use Yield Yak to optimize the returns of the Yield Bearing Stablecoin Index as well as the YAK token’s inclusion in the new Avalanche Ecosystem Index.

What is Cook Finance?

Cook Finance is the first DeFi Index platform to launch on Avalanche. If you’re new to Indexes, an Index allows an investor to gain exposure to multiple diversified assets inside a single portfolio.

Cook Finance Indexes

Recognizing Avalanche’s continued success, low fees and incredibly fast transaction speeds, Cook Finance has released three new indexes: a MegaCap, Stablecoin, and Avalanche Ecosystem Index (AEI). The AEI index gives investors exposure to a wide array of assets within the Avalanche ecosystem, including YAK. The Stablecoin index balances a range of stablecoin asset strategies from Yield Yak to maximize returns.
