Degen Tutorial: Earn 60% APR On ATOM With Stride Liquid Staking
DeFi Alpha is a weekly newsletter published for our premium subscribers every Friday, contributed by Defiant Advisor and DeFi investor at 4RC, DeFi Dad, and our Degen in Chief yyctrader. It aims to educate traders, investors, and newcomers about investment opportunities in decentralized finance, as well as provide primers and guides about its emerging platforms.
Two years ago, DeFi investors could easily name every yield farming opportunity without much effort. It was a simpler time, when only a handful of teams had launched with any liquidity to trade, lend, borrow, provide liquidity, or even demonstrate new primitives such as no-loss savings by PoolTogether.
But times have changed! Before the current bear market took hold, DeFi liquidity had grown to hundreds of billions of dollars across Ethereum with new burgeoning DeFi economies taking shape on EVM-compatible chains such as Polygon and Avalanche and non-EVM chains such as Cosmos and Solana. Any given day, a new DeFi or NFT project is launched.
So, after writing and creating countless DeFi guides and tutorials since 2019, we at The Defiant agreed it’s time we publish a more detailed weekly guide on all you need to know to keep up with new and old yield earning opportunities.
This is DeFi Alpha by The Defiant.

📈 Yield Alpha
Each week we will provide options to earn yield on ETH, WBTC, stablecoins, and other major tokens.
Stablecoins - 29.96% APY with the Concentrator Original Vault for the Curve pusd LP
This yield is backed by Curve trading fees + CVX and CRV rewards periodically harvested and compounded into staked cvxCRV. The yield will ultimately be claimed via Concentrator’s aCRV (equal cvxCRV).
To participate, one must first deposit into the Curve pusd LP and then stake the LP here on Concentrator -> Original Vaults -> search pusd -> Deposit. Alternatively, I can skip the Curve deposit and use most any stablecoin with the Concentrator single-asset deposit under Concentrator pusd Original Vault -> Deposit.
ETH - 14.36% APR with the wETH/sETH LP staked in Velodrome on Optimism
This yield is accrued in VELO.
To participate, one must deposit and stake in this wETH + sETH LP.
WBTC - 16.45% projected vAPR with the Curve pBTC LP staked in Convex
AVAX - 6% APR lending sAVAX to the sAVAX/AVAX pool on Platypus via Vector
This yield is issued in VTX, PTP, QI, and AVAX.
To participate, one must deposit into the AVAX Stake option here on Vector.
