YIP 32: Remove YFI burning Source

AuthorSunil Srivatsa

Simple Summary

Remove YFI burning from the protocol.


YFI represents a claim on Yearn protocol fees. To claim fees, YFI can either be burned or staked in the governance pool.

This YIP is to decide whether or not to keep the burning mechanism.


It makes no sense to burn because the price of YFI will always be higher than the claimable fee value. This is because YFI represents current assets in the fee pool plus future expected cashflows. Staking is just obviously better.

FOR: Remove YFI burning from the protocol.

AGAINST: No change (start burning YFI for fees).
