  • YFI/USD renews the uptrend extending the recovery from support at $17,800; all eyes aim for $40,000.

Some people say that the ship that is carrying some decentralized finance tokens like Yearn.finance already sailed. Yearn.finance has, in a short time, made a name for itself in the cryptocurrency industry by becoming the most expensive digital asset, overshadowing Bitcoin’s all-time high of $20,000.

The daily YFI/USD shows that since the DeFi darling token commenced trading on Binance, in August, it has rallied over 80%. An all-time high was traded at $40,000 on August 31, pausing the majestic and drastic price rally. A breakdown followed, forcing the price to plummet massively below $20,000. Support established at $17,800 allowed buyers to find balance and relaunch the ongoing bullish action above $30,000.

The meteoric growth of the YFI token has put the network on everyone’s radar.

Yearn.finance also updated the insurance cover for users earning with various DeFi tokens such as UMA, Uniswap, Synthetix, dForcenet, and Opyn.

Yearn.finance technical analysis

YFI is dancing above $30,000, but it is essential to note the volatility is extremely high. In other words, the price could easily swing up to $40,000 just as fast as it can swing down to $20,000.

However, the 4-hour chart highlights the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the last swing high to $40,000 and a swing low to $11,845 as the initial support. From a technical perspective, YFI/USD is in a bullish phase.
