About Convex Finance
Convex is a protocol that simplifies Curve boosting experience in order to maximize yields. Convex allows Curve liquidity providers to earn trading fees and claim boosted CRV without locking CRV themselves. Liquidity providers can receive boosted CRV and liquidity mining rewards with minimal effort.
CONVEX History / Information / Buying / Staking
Convex Finance (CVX), which launched in 2021, is one such platform. It's an incentive-based DeFi project built on top of Curve, a community governed decentralised exchange focusing on stablecoins.
HOW CONVEX WORKS
Convex Finance (CVX) is an inventive DeFi protocol built on top of stablecoin exchange Curve Finance. At its core, Convex rewards Curve liquidity providers and CRV stakers with additional DeFi yields. The aggressive push by Convex to lock up as much Curve liquidity as possible has thrown the protocol into a DeFi war with Yearn Finance. Both projects need all the CRV tokens they can get to keep increasing interest rates for Curve LPs.
