FAQ

What is Extra Finance?
Extra Finance is a community-driven leveraged yield farming (LYF) and lending protocol built on Optimism.
By offering up to 7X leverage, Extra Finance enables users to farm a diverse range of farming pools on Velodrome and other Dexes. Users can customize their farming strategies with options like re-investing, market-neutral, and long/short farming strategies.
In addition to LYF, Extra Finance also functions as a lending protocol. Users can deposit funds into its lending pools to earn interest on their deposited assets. This feature provides users with a way to earn passive income.

Security designs in your smart contract?
Constrained Admin Access
  • No fund withdrawal function is reserved for admin in smart contracts.
  • Multi-sig authentication is implemented for contract configurations, such as parameters like protocol fee, liquidation threshold, reserve rate, etc.
  • Upgrades on contract configurations are subject to a governance process, which includes a set of procedures and guidelines. This process involves multiple levels of review and approval from various stakeholders and serves to ensure transparency and consistency in managing changes to contract configurations.
Price Protection
  • The Time-Weighted Average Price (TWAP) model is implemented in Extra Finance's smart contract to safeguard against abnormal price fluctuations and potential malicious price manipulation.

  • Each transaction made on ExtraFi triggers auto re-investment.
  • In addition, off-chain bots trigger re-investment every 1-2 hours, guaranteeing that re-investment always takes place.
Why is the 'PnL' greater or smaller than the value of 'Farmed'?
The 'PnL' (Profit and Loss) can be greater or smaller than the value of 'Farmed' due to various factors. Here are some reasons:
  1. 1.
    Impermanent Loss: Impermanent loss occurs when the value of the underlying assets in a liquidity pool changes relative to the value of the same assets held outside the pool. If the impermanent loss is significant, it can result in a lower 'PnL' compared to the 'Farmed' value.
  2. 2.
    Price Variation of Underlying Asset(s): The 'PnL' is influenced by the price movement of the underlying asset(s) in the farming position.
  3. 3.
    Borrowing Interest: If you have borrowed assets (leveraged) to participate in the farming position, the interest you need to pay on the borrowed assets will reduce your 'PnL' compared to the 'Farmed' value.
  4. 4.
    Swap Cost: The 'swap cost' refers to the fees charged by DEX and potential slippage when converting your initial deposit into LP tokens. These costs are subtracted from the 'Farmed' value to calculate the 'PnL', so they can impact the final result.
