Cream Finance’s token Fundamentals

Cream Finance is a decentralized lending protocol part of the Yearn Finance ecosystem. It is a permissionless, open-source, and blockchain agnostic protocol. The lending platform’s triple-digit bull run takes cues from the Iron Bank’s recent announcement of an airdrop of IB tokens.

Cream Finance did not have a very good 2021, as hackers targeted the platform three times. The last attack, in late Oct, cost the protocol $130 million. Overall, Cream Finance lost $186 million in 2021, and the platform’s price action suffered as well.

For example, when Cream Finance announced discovering an exploit on Oct 27, CREAM’s prices plummeted more than 30% in a day. However, the upcoming airdrop of Iron Bank tokens for CREAM holders has reignited investor interest in the lending platform.

The Iron Bank is the new protocol front-end for the central bank of Yearn Finance. Andre Cronje, ve(3,3) tokenomics and Yearn Finance founder, created the Iron Bank. The protocol powers many of the highest yield pools on Convex Finance. Iron Bank mints ib-tokens, ‘Iron Bank’ labeled token minted from various sources.

CREAM token holders would receive IB token distribution. The airdrop would come in the form of ‘4-year locked veIB on Fantom Opera. ‘Users who stake their CREAM tokens for an extended lock-in period would be eligible for the airdrop.

As users have to stake their CREAM tokens for an extended period, it would reduce the Cream Finance token’s active supply, theoretically leading to an increase in its price.
