UI Issue with Governance Vault v1

There is currently an issue with VALUE DeFi Governance Vault.

The team are aware of the 0 VALUE reward bug. Please don’t claim/exit your staked YFV from gov vault now. The team are investigating the issue.

Your VALUE is not gone. It’s a UI bug, it will be handled soon.

If you have already claimed your rewards (or exited) and got 0 VALUE, you will get the VALUE rewards automatically airdropped to your address.

Airdrops will take place on Wednesday October 14th 2020.

Don’t worry nothing is lost and you don’t have to do anything else.

From the innovative spirit from both the developers and the community, the protocol has expanded beyond simple yield farming to offering a suite of products to cover the full DeFi spectrum.

As such, while the team have achieved no insignificant status as a successful YFI fork, the team have decided it is time to move beyond the connotations and trappings of “YFValue”.

Today (6th October 2020), YFValue Protocol will rebrand to:

Contract addresses for YFV, Value, vUSD, vETH

The new pools have started to pay out the new tokens Value, vUSD, vETH as rewards. Please see the contract addresess for these tokens below:


Value: https://etherscan.io/address/0x49e833337ece7afe375e44f4e3e8481029218e5c

vUSD: https://etherscan.io/address/0x1B8E12F839BD4e73A47adDF76cF7F0097d74c14C

Cant see the tokens you’ve claimed in your wallet?

Your wallet, e.g. Metamask may not yet know what the name of these new tokens are yet, so you need to tell it.

For Metamask, just select ‘Add token’ and enter one of the addresses above.

You will then see the balance appear in your wallet.

Staking Pool V2 – Rewards have now stopped

Update: Rewards for this pool have now closed. You should unstake and claim your rewards. Remember Value, vUSD, vETH will be returned to your wallet, if you cant see them ensure you have added the new token addresses.


Users staking in this pool can unstake and claim all back to their wallets or ‘exit and stake to Governance vault’

The pool is still available on the http://yfv.finance however this may be moved to the legacy page in the near future.

YFV Legacy Pools Close on October 1st 2020


Why are my rewards from the Legacy pools gone?

The team drained all the rewards that were left unclaimed in the old legacy pools. Due to people staying in the pools, these pools kept running and minted and emitted 1% of the normal emission. Closing the pools would mean all funds were unable to be withdrawed. The team had found a way to solve this by draining the rewards and no longer letting the legacy pools to be able to mint. This was done to allow them to leave the pools open past the original oct 1 cutoff (therefore the 1 october withdraw deadline is no longer needed).

Now nobody will be at risk of losing their liquidity because they accidentally didn’t claim it before that date. This was a good move, but it required them to remove all YFV from the pools and move it to the insurance fund (which is under control of multisig).

Those rewards should be claimable – you rightly earned them. They will be airdropped back to your wallet at a later date. (TBA) So you wont have to pas gas fees to claim!

— End of Update —

The pools that opened when YFV launched have now stopped paying rewards. If you are staking in any of the legacy pools (see screenshot below) you should now go to the YFV site and click on the ‘Legacy’ link, you should see all the old legacy pools here.

Most of the legacy staking pools now have a new pool set up, if this is the case then you should see an option to ‘Transfer to farm new VALUE pool’. If this option is not available then you should unstake and claim your rewards.

You have until October 1st 2020 to claim your rewards, after this date you risk losing all funds in the pools.
