Yieldly (YLDY), launched on June 5, 2021, the first decentralized finance platform built on the Algorand blockchain, a proof-of-stake, fully decentralized, secure, and scalable blockchain founded by Silvio Micali in 2017. Already with $13.5 million in Algorand’s ALGO staked, putting Yieldly in the top 35 DeFi protocols by yield TVL according to Defillama.com.
Yieldly recently successfully passed a security audit by Halborn that is used by BlockFi, Coinbase, and Stellar.
Yieldly is simple to use once you are set up. It is also inexpensive and fast to move funds to your account as the Algorand blockchain doesn’t rely on mining.
VLookup is a useful function for searching through a spreadsheet and getting information for specific tasks. I have found INDEX and MATCH combined as useful and much less restrictive.

With the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum bringing attention back to the defi space, companies are looking for ways of incorporating that technology into our everyday lives. Splinterlands, a new card battle game is using that technology by giving players real world value to their game. They do that through the use of NFTs or Non-fungible tokens or ERC-721.
NFTs are tokens that unlike Bitcoin, are of unique value. The same reason two cars might not have the same value, even if they are the same make and model. Think baseball cards, comic books, or Pokemon cards.
I didn’t win the Yieldly lottery this week. What I did win was my YLDY rewards for entering the lottery by staking ALGO.
Last week, I entered Yieldly’s no-loss lottery with 3.78 ALGO. I wrote about this new decentralized finance (DeFi) application built on the Algorand blockchain here:
After successfully staking those ALGO, I went back and staked more, making a total of 17.47 ALGO staked. This gave me 17.47 lottery tickets that didn’t show up until after the drawing. After doing some research, I had found out that you have to leave your ALGO staked until after…
Getting started in blockchain can be overwhelming. Everyone has an opinion on the best chain, language, or tools. Not knowing where to look or who to ask. Someone trying to sell you their blockchain class for thousands of dollars. This past year has really opened up the use of webinars and most importantly free webinars. Algorand is getting out there and providing a lot of education in this way.
If you are like me, you have limited time and limited resources. You have some coding skills to get going but need that little help to figure out where to go…
