Ethereum Yield itself is a yield farming protocol for Ethereum, building on one of the most popular trends in the DeFi movement since it took off early in 2020.
Ethereum Stake closely follows Ethereum Yield in style and substance, copying features such as fee mechanisms which punish “weak hands” and benefit long-term liquidity providers.
Like many DeFi projects, the creators of Ethereum Stake and Ethereum Yield are pseudo-anonymous.
Ethereum Stake is nonetheless described as a direct subsidiary of Ethereum Yield, with the implication that the two projects’ developer teams are the same.
Despite the lack of clear developer identities, the structure of Ethereum Stake disincentivizes exit maneuvers from its team — fees and locked liquidity which its official literature calls “anti-rug mechanisms.”
“Rugs” refer to a popular turn of phrase among cryptocurrency investors which describes the practice of absconding or flooding a coin’s market with liquidity at a certain price point so that the price subsequently crashes. It is akin to “pulling the rug out from” beneath an object.
Ethereum Stake caters to cryptocurrency investors with knowledge of DeFi and its most popular activities — specifically yield farming.
Holders with spare capital can use this as liquidity which they dedicate to the project, earning passive income as a reward and helping to secure its network — a process known as staking.
Ethereum Stake includes mechanisms designed to attract developers’ preferred investor profile, one which will provide liquidity on a long-term basis. Short-term speculators and bots are penalized with extra fees.
Out of the fees charged, a certain percentage is returned to what is called the Ethereum Yield price protection fund, a pool of liquidity designed to support ETHY.
Ethereum Stake is just the first ETHY subsidiary project, with plans for further offerings to benefit a similar investor base.

The native token of Ethereum Stake is ETHYS, a fixed-cap cryptocurrency with a total supply of 500,000 ETHYS.
Of these, 100,000 were distributed via a public presale in late November and early December 2020. Tokens were sold variously at 0.015 ETH and 0.02 ETH per ETHYS.
Once staking itself began, participants could begin earning more ETHYS via staking rewards, subject to time commitment.
Ethereum Stake’s literature states that 80% of tokens allocated to the developer team will go towards staking rewards.
Additional sources of income, such as the “weak hand” tax, will go towards the Ethereum Yield price protection fund, as detailed above.
Ethereum Stake, as its name suggests, gets its protection from user involvement, with staking also helping to protect network security and stability.
The penalty system further helps to incentivize liquidity providers to remain on board for the long term, rather than speculate with ETHYS and cause volatility or liquidity problems.
ETHYS is an ERC-20 standard token running on Ethereum.
