Yearn Finance Taps into Crypto’s Unit Bias With Woofy Token

1 Mins read

Woofys can be created by “woofing ” YFI tokens into WOOFY at a rate of 1:1,000,000. Since the release of the alternative token, the price of YFI saw a swift rise to new all-time highs.

Yearn Launches Same Token, Just Smaller

A common critique of Yearn Finance’s YFI lies in the dollar price of the token. As only 36,666 tokens exist, the price per coin can seem too high for some retail investors.

This phenomenon is known as unit bias, as the price per coin shouldn’t factor into the decision-making process of any investor. The coins represent a percentage in ownership of the protocol’s entire supply; the actual number of coins doesn’t matter.

Yearn Finance decided to put unit bias to the test by releasing Woofy as an alternative token to YFI. This doesn’t add any supply to YFI but rather represents a converted version of YFI tokens in much smaller units. The name Woofy comes from the current trend of dog-named coins started by the rising popularity of Dogecoin.

Since the release of Woofy, Yearn’s YFI has seen a sharp rise in price up to $90,000, more than a 40% increase in a few days. Woofy is currently trading at $0,08 and managed to be part of the top 10 most traded coins on Uniswap’s new v3 .

Banteg, one of the developers behind Yearn, has also announced Woofy would soon be available on other compatible networks like BSC or Polygon.
