Greetings Frentacles of the Tentacult,
Octo fi has been on a mission lately rolling out the best defi has to offer in such a short period.
In the latest release on March 3, 2021 [https://den.octo.fi/p/log](https://) , we saw the release of the first Crosstopus function implemented with the ETH/ BTC pair. The upgrade also saw the addition of more Decentralized Exchanges our tentacles can route through to find the best rates. While we prepare for L2 solutions keeping your tenties peeled for whats in the vault 👀
Speaking of Vaults, that is one thing I would like to see integrated onto the platform. Vaults are pools of funds locked in a smart contract that follow a certain investment strategy, with a goal to provide passive income stream through competitive and risky yield farming strategies. These passive income vehicles are another tool that can be added to your investment strategy. Currently under the "Invest" tab Octo offers, LIquidity pools, Tokensets, Loans, and NFTs. With the addition of vaults, we will continue to add to this aggreg8tor machine!!!
With octo's close relationship with 0xprotocol, I thought it would be a nice token of gratitude and a great matchtopus to integrate the $ZRX vault as our first vault. What is 0xprotocol? 0x is a protocol that facilitates the peer-to-peer exchange of Ethereum-based assets. The protocol serves as an open standard and core DeFi building block for any developer needing exchange functionality. 0x is a pioneer in the defi space and it deserves more credit. Currently the only vault that is offered is through [https://mushrooms.finance/](https://). I love what the Mushrroms finance team has done by giving the 0x community a vault strategy. Currently the "Helvella Fields" vault has ~ $210,000 TVL, offering a 5.64% APR to depositors of the $ZRX token. Depositors are paid out in $mZRX which they can stake in the "Veggie Pizza" farms to earn a 111% APR in Mushrooms.Finance's native token, $MM.
The vault can bring exposure to the octo.fi platform and give the 0x community and Mushrooms Finance community a vault integrated on the best defi aggregator available. Please leave comments and ideas below and Let me know what you think.
