About Moralis

Moralis is the premier Web3 development platform. As such, Moralis is the quickest way for developers to prototype, develop, and deploy their dApps, DeFi projects, or Web3 apps. On average, Moralis cuts the typical development time by 87%. Specifically, Moralis does this by giving developers access to a powerful backend blockchain infrastructure with just a few snippets of code. This means that developers do not need to build their Web3 infrastructure from scratch. Instead, they can focus on the essentials of creating a great dApp.

What’s more, Moralis is built to be cross-chain compatible. This means participants can easily create cross-chain dApps, and do things like build Avalanche dApps, connect to Polygon nodes, deploy BEP20 tokens, create a DEX and much more — from one single Web3 platform.

About Yield Yak

Yield Yak is a DeFi protocol on the Avalanche Blockchain which focuses on optimising yields across the entire Avalanche ecosystem. It consists of a handful of core products. Namely, a DEX aggregator, Yield Optimizer and Auto-compounder. It is one of the first and among the largest native protocols and prides itself on being a community driven project.

Yield Yak supports dozens of platforms for auto-compounding, and has also developed single-asset lending optimisation strategies, where single-assets were ‘folded’ multiple times in order to maximize yield on lending platforms such as Benqi, AAVE, and Trader Joe. Yield Yak’s platform is natively built for the Avalanche blockchain.

Finally, the YAK token, whose utility is to earn platform fees generated by the platform as well as to shape its future as a governance token, had 75% of its supply airdropped to early platform users.
