In this article we will review existing crypto custody solutions, find common problems and propose a new decentralized approach to crypto custody that addresses common pitfalls of existing systems.

What is crypto custody and why do we need it?

Managing secret keys is hard. They are difficult to remember, easy to lose. They can be stolen, hacked or accidentally revealed to other individuals. Loss of a secret key leads to full loss of access to the user’s account and all funds associated with it. Theft of a secret key allows the perpetrator to steal funds or make other unauthorized operations pretending to come from the account owner.

Those risks and…


By late 2013, it was clear crypto assets would be the future of finance. It was the first time bitcoin crossed $1,000. To the cypherpunks’ chagrin, central banks around the world began publishing warnings to curb the “decentralized genie” threatening the stability of the familiar system. First they ignore you, then they fight.

Bitcoin’s rally stopped short due to a lack of trust and high volatility, rather than any state intervention. That was when people realized crypto assets needed a bridge to financial world, based on our own terms. This was the impetus to create “stable cryptocurrencies,” or stablecoins.

In this article, we’ll explain how Swop.fi pools’ annual percentage yield (APY) is formed and what factors have an impact on it.

On the information page https://swop.fi/info, you can view the annual percentage yield (APY) for each liquidity pool. APY is calculated dynamically, based on current stats. Let’s see what it consists of.

SWOP APY

SWOP APY is an income from SWOP token farming. The farming reward is the most substantial component of liquidity providers’ total income. Please, note that rewards in SWOP tokens are only paid to those liquidity providers who staked their share tokens in the section Investments → Farming.


This article by Inal Kardanov, Waves development advocate, will help you make sense of a new token on Swop.fi, USDC, and start earning on it.

Recently, a second stablecoin pair after USDT/USDN has become available on Swop.fi — USDC/USDN.

I think many of the readers are already familiar with USDN, a stablecoin on the Neutrino protocol available in many pairs on Swop.fi. Just like USDN, USDC has a 1:1 peg to USD. But, unlike USDN, this token, issued on the Ethereum blockchain by Circle and Coinbase, is centralized.

USDC is available in the Waves network thanks to Waves.Exchange gateways. Therefore…


No, we didn’t mix up numbers in the headline. We are really talking about 100%, and now, we’ll tell you how to get it.

Sasha Ivanov already wrote a tweet about achieving this kind of profitability. And now, we’ll take you through all the steps needed to get an APY of 100%+ on a USD deposit.

Step 1. Getting USDT and USDN

To maximize your profits, you need…
