Ethereum Yield has referred to itself as "Ethereum's powerful Yield farming coin," stating that it's designed to maximize returns, reward holders and punish "weak hands." According to its announcement, when users stake
liquidity provider tokens, a percentage of incurred fees are used for price-pumping actions such as liquidating LP tokens and buying back ETHY. The project designed ETHY to be noninflationary, so every time a token is transferred, a fee is charged and awarded to the farmers.
The project relies on

How Is the Ethereum Yield Network Secured?
Ethereum Yield is an ERC-20 token, which means that it relies on the Ethereum
to validate ETHY transactions. Ethereum uses a
algorithm in which miners compete among each other to add new blocks to the blockchain and a majority of all nodes in the network must confirm a record for it to be posted.
The project was launched with centralized governance, but it has stated ETHY token holders will be able to participate in governance and make decisions regarding developer fees, liquidity pools, etc. Despite its centralization, the project has
that its liquidity pools cannot be exploited by the development team because its liquidity is indefinitely locked up in Uniswap. In addition, the team has
ownership over the staking
