The process in which you put your assets to work to generate returns is called Yield Farming. Being a yield farmer means that you are actively looking for the best strategy to maximize your profit from your initial funds. Such a strategy requires you to adjust your position from week to week, finding the pool that is offering the best annual returns (APY) at the given time. Usually, the percentage of returns is directly proportional to the risk of the pool. However, like with any other investment your strategy needs to be crafted around handling the risks.
