Yield-Bearing Vaults (ERC-4626)

What is a yield-bearing Vault?

Vaults are comprised of smart contracts that help DeFi users find the best yield on their crypto tokens through the execution of different strategies that are designed to generate a return through capital movements, auto compounding, and rebalancing. Once tokens are deposited into the Vault, yield-bearing tokens are issued to represent the deposited share of the pool.

About ERC-4626

"ERC-4626: Tokenized Vault Standard" is an Ethereum application developer interface for building token vaults and strategies. It is meant to consolidate and standardize development efforts around “ERC-20 token strategies” such as borrow & lending, farming and staking. Benefits of using this standard include:

  • Improved interoperability of different protocols to ensure an easier experience implementing new yield Vaults into applications by using a single API

  • Standardizing code helps mitigate poorly written smart contracts

  • Access to maximum yield strategies as more and more Vaults are introduced with less developmental overhead

Midas Capital's goal is to help facilitate as many yield-bearing strategies for our users to maximize their investment. Utilizing many popular and top protocols in the space, Midas Capital aims to create easy-to-use functionality in order to achieve this.
