How it ended up




Unfortunately the Optimism chain was having moment and couldn't properly estimate prices. We ended up pretty much exactly at the same amount of money we'd estimated for.
We'll be hanging onto $RING. Price chart has been looking pretty good.

Here's how I'm voting


Assessing the rewards

Not much to assess. We've just gone with the LP with the highest fees, which has two very mainstream tokens: Circle's bridged $USDC and $VELO. It's already got a lot of votes and whilst I would expect those to increase I wouldn't expect them to increase massively.



Those high vAPRs....

Not much of a story this time, more a PSA on doing your basic due diligence.

This isn't anything dodgy about $USDC.e or $USDT it's just there are 257 votes in total on this LP currently. That's really nothing.
We have a very modest veVELO lock and we have nearly 4.5K votes alone.
Luckily Velodrome (and Aerodrome) show you clearly how the vAPR is arrived out right there on the web portal.

How it ended up




So we were pretty close. ~$6 became ~$5.
I'll keep $TN100x as I can track it on Coingecko. As well as $L2VE, which I somehow ended up with some of...

Assessing the rewards

$AERO of course doesn't need any explanation. The other two tokens I've actually voted for before. For a full explanation see my Farmers Markets #1 post https://www.bulbapp.io/p/8e3fb092-03b7-4f67-9009-105e00849275/farmers-markets-1-vote-your-veaero-and-vevelo?s_id=94266de4-e011-4db6-8307-383eb4bea3bf

We'll briefly catch up with how they've faired since we voted for them a couple of weeks ago.

Those high vAPRs....

This epoch's special mention goes to $ROOST.
Both of them.

It's really easy to look at this chart and say: "memecoin in the process of rugging, same old same old."

https://birdeye.so/token/0xE1aBD004250AC8D1F199421d647e01d094FAa180?chain=base

But what you're actually looking at above is the old token. The project has very recently done a token migration (https://medium.com/@roostcoin/everything-you-need-to-know-about-the-roost-relaunch-22549049f7c9) and are in the process of rotating the old tokens out of the market.

Suffice to say it's not gone swimmingly. But these things never do when they're handled by inexperienced people rushing to launch memecoins (which what this lot definitely seem like reading through their X account).
