An overview of the Yield Monitor application. (Beta)

DeFi – and crypto assets as a whole – can be volatile. It’s exciting to see your portfolio rising in value, but more data and clarity should be available about how your portfolio value is increasing (or decreasing). Through data, we can identify how specific assets are performing, which gives us more contextual awareness of liquidity pool and yield farm performance. Armed with this information, we believe DeFi users can leverage our multi-chain database and portfolio tools to make more informed financial decisions.

An Overview:
We hope to support investors and DeFi ecosystems by adding value through accurate data, portfolio-tracking tools, and charts to help users better visualize and understand their DeFi investments. Yield Monitor primarily tracks single assets and liquidity pools. Where applicable, our charts will show users:

  • Asset or LP Token Price in $USD
  • Total Holdings Value in $USD
  • Amount of Assets or LP Tokens Owned

When available, additional information may include:

  • Expanded Liquidity Pool Details
  • Links to Token Prices, Contracts
  • LP Token’s Individual Asset Ratios
  • Impermanent Loss Calculator / Examples
  • Order Book & Trade Volume
  • List of Tracked Liquidity Pools
  • List of Tracked Yield Farms

Yield Monitor should be considered in BETA and we suggest that Yield Monitor be a single tool among many in your overall DeFi toolkit. Nothing referenced within Yield Monitor should be considered investment advice, and we encourage all users to read our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

How We Calculate LP Token Prices

Liquidity pools are dynamic and range in complexity based on individual protocols, contracts, etc. When we integrate protocols, we make as-needed adjustments based on these variables. There’s really no “one size fits all” formula. However, we start at a relatively universal foundation for basic LP Token price calculation. This is commonly found in many DeFi documentations.

Price of 1 LP Token = Total Value of Liquidity Pool / Circulating Supply of LP Tokens

Some variables that may impact the data when calculating include: the number of decimals in a token (some don’t even use decimals), the value in $USD vs. token, the router, the amount of liquidity in a particular pool. While the basic formula begins as shown above, each calculation does have unique variables that may impact the reported price. Yield Monitor focuses on calculating LP Token prices using $USD values (instead of token values). For clarity:

Price of 1 LP Token = Total $USD Value of Liquidity Pool / Circulating Supply of LP Tokens

You can find price and token information about liquidity pools through tools like Yield Monitor or by going to block explorers like EtherScan directly. Additionally, DeFi protocols may offer this data via their own analytics pages.

Creating your Yield Monitor account.

Yield Monitor Registration Screen Documentation

To create an account, users can select the “Create Account” button on the home screen. Additionally, users can select the “Login” button across the top navigation bar, and then choose the “Create Account” option on the following screen.

Both options will take you to the Registration page.

Adjusting your account settings, email preferences, etc. (Planned Feature)

Yield Monitor User Account Preferences

Within account settings, registered users can adjust their login email address, change their password, add and remove tracked wallets, and adjust various communication preferences, including:

  • alerts for changes in portfolio value (10% +/-)
  • alerts for new DeFi tracking integrations
  • messages related to product and tooling updates
  • security alerts for account login and password changes
  • notifications for account wallet additions or removals

Tracking your wallet, adding a new wallet, etc.

Adding A Wallet

Throughout Yield Monitor, users will find “Track Your Wallet” or “View Portfolio” buttons that bring (Logged In) users to this page. Here, users can select from existing tracked wallets they’ve previously added. All tracked wallets are stored for future use unless a user chooses to remove the wallet from their account.

In this screen, we see that this registered and logged-in user can select from four existing tracked wallets in their account. Once selected, the user will see their Portfolio page.

Adding A Wallet

In this screen, a user can add a new wallet address for portfolio tracking. Simple select the “Add a New Wallet” tab and paste your wallet address. Users do not need to connect their wallets — Yield Monitor is currently read-only. Yield Monitor has no control over assets held within users’ wallets.

Reading Portfolio Chart Cards

Logged-in users with tracked wallets can view visual charts that offer better context about their asset performance. We can consider portfolio charts to be a more advanced feature for Registered Users compared to our standard Liquidity Pool Charts or Yield Farm Charts, which are available to everyone.

In this image, we’re looking at three hypothetical liquidity pools across different networks and protocols. In the cards, we see that the user can toggle different points of data:

  • The price of the LP Token (in $USD)
  • The $USD value of their entire investment
  • The amount of LP Tokens they holdd
Yield Monitor Portfolio Cards Documentation

In the mock-up reference above, we can see three liquidity pool holdings in this user’s tracked wallet. The first card shows us the Banana-BUSD pool on ApeSwap in the Binance network. We can see:

  • LP Token Price
  • % change in price over the chart’s default timespan
  • Colored chart graphs reflecting:
    • LP Token Price
    • $USD Value of that user’s holdings
    • Amount of LP Tokens they hold

Just like our standard Liquidity Pool Charts, we see the six icons below the chart that will take users to the Expanded Details page. Each icon reflects a different tracked data point related to the pool, like:

  • Expanded Pool Details (Page)  view
  • General Information (Tab)  view
  • LP Token Ratio (Tab)  view
  • Impermanent Loss Calculation (Tab)  view
  • Order Book (Tab)  view
  • Tracked Pools List (Tab)  view
  • Tracked Farms List (Tab)  view

Below the icons, we can also see a preview of other tracked liquidity pools across different DeFi protocols for each particular asset pair. For example, in our first card (Banana-BUSD), we see this pairing is also available on PancakeSwap and Sushi Swap. This offers a quick glimpse at other opportunities for investors looking to expand their portfolio footprint.

If a user holds the LP Token across multiple protocols, we’ll show that data on the card. You can see an example here, in the middle of the page. In this hypothetical WBTC.e — USDC pool, the investor holds most of their LP Tokens in Pangolin. But, we also see they have a small amount with Trader Joe and Lydia Finance, too.

What’s Ahead: Multi-Chain Portfolio Dashboard (In Progress)

The portfolio dashboard is the true data hub of Yield Monitor. Here, DeFi investors can get a detailed sense of their overall portfolio positions across all tracked mainnets and protocols. Users can toggle tracked wallets on and off to understand what wallets hold specific value, and dive deeper into Recent Transactions, liquidity pool, yield farm, and lending positions — and more.

Users can choose to activate or deactivate various data, like the Portfolio Value by Network chart, which offers USD-based portfolio value by each network. In this example, we see the user has chosen to view their portfolio values across the Avalanche, Ethereum, and Fantom networks.

Yield Monitor Portfolio Dashboard

In this second image, we can see the user has expanded the details for their four tracked wallets. We can see they’ve deactivated one, so the portfolio dashboard is showing the asset data for the three actively tracked wallets. Yield Monitor also shows the user what networks each wallet holds assets within. For example, we see that the user’s first wallet has assets on the Algorand, Binance, and Etheruem networks.

Additionally, we see the user has expanded the Avalanche (AVAX) Asset Holdings list. Here, Yield Monitor provides users with a detailed breakdown of their investment positions: single assets, liquidity pools, yield farming, lending, etc.

From there, users can choose to view details about each item if they desire. For example, viewing details about a liquidity pool will take users to the Expanded Details page.

Yield Monitor Portfolio Dashboard Documentation

What’s Ahead: Multi-Chain Transaction History (Planned Feature)

We hope to offer users an immense amount of value with a multi-wallet Transaction History page in the future. Building on the momentum of the Portfolio Dashboard, an aggregated, multi-wallet source for on-chain activity will help investors track and manage their DeFi portfolios and, we hope, annual transactional, PNL, tax-related reporting.

Yield Monitor Transaction History Documentation

Users will be able to access Transactional History from their Dashboard. Depending on the user’s Tracked Wallets and on-chain investment activity, various information will be available, including:

  • actively tracked (toggle) wallet addresses
  • total portfolio value across all tracked protocols
  • breakdown of investments across pools, farms, lending, etc.
  • a search and filter bar to help parse desired transactions
  • chronological order of aggregated and/or single wallet transactions
  • links to transaction ID and wallet address indicator
  • specific information related to each transaction

Eventually we hope to offer some type of exportable documentation to help users with transactional/annual investing reporting.

What’s Ahead: Trade Router (Planned Feature)

This is an in-progress feature and is not currently available. Thanks for your patience and support. More content and information will be coming soon.

Tracked Assets & Pools — Personal Favorites List

Soon, logged-in users will have the ability to sort and save desired liquidity pool pairs to a “Favorites List” inside their account. We hope this will be an advantageous watchlist style feature for DeFi users who may be interested in a particular investment in the future, or a particular protocol they want to watch perform over time.

The mock up below shows our first iteration, which will show users a top-level view of data, including:

  • The Liquidity Pool + Tokens
  • The Network
  • The Protocol
  • Recent APR

Users will have the ability to quickly “add to favorites” via the heart icon. Additionally, the button on the right side of each row will take users to the Expanded Details page for that particular asset pair.

Yield Monitor User Favorites List

For users who may want a fun way to randomize their search, we’ve created the “LFG” button, shown at the top. Clicking this will let Yield Monitor randomly pick a liquidity pool from among our 50,000+ tracked pools to show to the user.

Performance Leaderboards (Planned Feature)

Yield Monitor tracks a significant amount of on-chain asset data. Naturally, we think investors would find a leaderboard-style page beneficial. From here, users would be able to filter through tracked liquidity pools, yield farms, lending protocols and, eventually, single assets (tokens) and filter based on various performance metrics. Links to Expanded Details pages would be offered for more data and tracking.

Yield Monitor Performance Leaderboard Sample

Liquidity Pool Charts: Overview

One of our first offerings, the liquidity pool charts page is a pillar of our DeFi data lineup. We’re extremely proud to have been one of the first DeFi products to offer visual charts reflecting the price and performance of LP Tokens.

Standard Liquidity Pool Charts
Yield Monitor Onboarding Browser Tutorial — Network, Protocol, Price
Yield Monitor Onboarding Browser Tutorial — Standard Pool Chart Card — Token Chart

The mock-up above shows a hypothetical screen of various pools from six different mainnets and protocols. Each card contains the same information:

  • The network and protocol
  • The current LP Token price and recent performance
  • A visual price chart
  • The LP Token Price “Shorthand”

And links to the Expanded Details page, where use can view tabbed content containing additional data, like:

  • General Information (Tab)  view
  • LP Token Ratio (Tab)  view
  • Impermanent Loss Calculation (Tab)  view
  • Order Book (Tab)  view
  • Tracked Pools List (Tab)  view
  • Tracked Farms List (Tab)  view

LP Token Price “Shorthand”

Sometimes the price of an LP Token can be quite low. When this occurs, we use a way to “shorthand” the price shown on the liquidity pool data cards. This prevents many characters (zeroes) from appearing on the card and impacting the design/readability across the page.

An example mock up is shown in the image. On the first (left) card, we’re looking at a standard two-token liquidity pool card. We see the price shown is the price of 1 LP Token. We can understand that the price of 1 LP Token is $42.91.

Yield Monitor LP Token Price "Shorthand" Button
Yield Monitor Onboarding Browser Tutorial — Standard Pool Chart Card — Buttons

On the second (right) liquidity pool card, we can see the card shows a price of $0.0021 for the LP Token. But we see a note underneath that indicates we’ve “shorthanded” the price — by 0.10M. (“0.10M LP Token”).

To find the LP Token price, we divide the shown price by the “shorthand” note.

The user would note the following:

  • Shown LP price = $0.0021
  • LP Token price “shorthand” = 0.10M
  • Divide 0.0021 / 0.10M (100,000)
  • Actual LP Token price = $0.000000021

Notes regarding calculation factors:

  • If LP Token price is less than 0.0000000000, we multiply the shorthand by a factor in Billions.
  • If LP Token price is less than 0.000000, we multiply the shorthand by a factor in Millions.
  • If LP Token price is less than 0.000, we multiply the shorthand by a factor in Thousands.

When the actual price of an LP token is shown (no calculation required), we note this with “1 LP Token“.

Liquidity Pools: Expanded Details

Liquidity Pool Expanded Details Documentation
Yield Monitor Onboarding Browser Tutorial — LP Token Price Chart
Yield Monitor Onboarding Browser Tutorial — Volume & Fee Charts

For users wanting more information on individual Liquidity Pools, the Expanded Details page will provide a great deal of value. In this mock-up screen, we can see an expanded view of a hypothetical Banana-USDC pool on ApeSwap. A user can view:

  • the current LP Token price,
  • the recent price performance,
  • the price performance of the tokens in the pool,
  • access links to token contract addresses,
  • add the LP Token to their Favorites list, and
  • view various information in the tabbed sections below

Note: To access this page with all tab data, a user must Register and be logged in to their Yield Monitor account. This page shows what a non-logged in user will see.

Asset Trade Ratios

The asset trade ratio is what investors are most likely to see on any decentralized exchange (DEX) chart — it visualizes the change in asset trading ratios within the liquidity pool; how much of asset “A” you’ll receive by swapping asset “B” in a traditional 50-50 liquidity pool. This chart helps investors find strategic, timely moments to trade assets. Additionally, our Asset Ratio pages help DeFi users spot arbitrage trading opportunities.

Yield Monitor Onboarding Browser Tutorial — Asset Trade Ratio

Expanded Details: Single Asset Price Charts

Yield Monitor Onboarding Browser Tutorial — Single Asset Price Chart

Getting single asset price data gives users a more complete view of portfolio performance. We’ve added single asset price charts for each token within the pool to give investors a more complete view from one page.

Liquidity Pools: Expanded Details — General Info Tab

At the bottom of the Expanded Details page, users will find a series of tabbed content. In this General Information Tab, users can find information related to:

  • A recap of the LP Token price chart
  • The breakdown of tokens and quantities that form the LP Token
  • The $USD value of those individual assets

Please note that, in the mock up below, we have removed the Expanded Details large price chart so we can more easily show the tabbed content.

Liquidity Pools: Expanded Details — Impermanent Loss Tab

At the bottom of the Expanded Details page, users will find a series of tabbed content. In this Impermanent Loss Tab, users can find information comparing individual token ownership vs. holding the liquidity pool token. This helps investors understand and quantify impermanent loss. Data within this tab will include:

  • quantity of individual tokens in an LP Token
  • $USD value of tokens
  • change in quantity and $USD value over time
  • option for users to adjust the calculated timeframe
  • final result on estimated impermanent loss

Calculations do not include any applicable trading fees an investor may earn over time by holding the LP Token. These can offset or remove the impacts of impermanent loss.

Please note that, in the mock up below, we have removed the Expanded Details large price chart so we can more easily show the tabbed content.

Protocol Analytics (Planned Feature)

Managing larges amounts of on-chain data is difficult, if not impossible, for many small teams. When data isn’t available, the investors — or, at least, the investor experience — can suffer. Below is a sample of a planned initiative in which Yield Monitor will offer users more aggregated asset data organized by individual protocols.

Yield Monitor Protocol Analytics - Pools Screen

Toggling between liquidity pools and yield farms, investors will be able to see various data related to:

  • the liquidity pool assets
  • the total liquidity
  • current %APR
  • reward token (farms)
  • volume and generated fees (when available)

Additional links will take users to the Expanded Details pages for liquidity pools and yield farms when/where available.
