Alpha Finance – a leveraged yield aggregator – has launched its second product “Alpha Homora“, designed to make leveraged yield farming simple and unlock various yield farming enhancements.

Their first product was “Alpha Lending”, launched in September 2020 on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC).  The team has previously described their new product as “dYdX for yield farming on Uniswap“.  Alpha Finance is backed by prominent investors in the space such as The Spartan Group, Multicoin Capital, and DeFiance Capital.

At launch, there will be four supported pools on Alpha Homora for users to deposit into.

These pools correspond with the current incentivized pools on Uniswap. Once live, users can farm with 3x leverage and automate the re-investing of their profits from farming.

Alpha Homora features four distinct actors:

  • Yield Farmers
  • ETH lenders
  • Liquidators
  • Bounty hunters

To learn about how each user type, read the full official blog post on Alpha Homora here. The mainnet launch occurred this Thursday, Oct. 8th, showcasing its ecosystem of DeFi products, building first on Binance Smart Chain and now on Ethereum. The team believes that the future of yield farming will be cross-chain and automated, so they are set on creating the toolset that will enable users to attain optimal multi-chain alpha.

ALPHA Token

ALPHA is the native governance token of Alpha Finance Labs. It is currently unlisted but will be available on Binance starting tomorrow, October 10th, 2020.
