When you deposit into a Squirrel.Finance insured farm you are depositing into an insured (“wrapped”) version of an existing bsc farm.

Cake farm deposits into Pancake’s pool to farm CAKE + bonus NUTS

Each insured farm is covered by NUTS collateral which pays out automatically to users if the underlying farm has any withdrawal issues (such as “rugs” etc.)

Example 1:
User deposits 10 CAKE into Cake Farm, they then unstake a day later & receive their 10 CAKE back. In this case no NUTS compensation is needed.

Example 2: User deposits 10 CAKE into Cake Farm, but when they come to unstake PancakeSwap’s farm has lost their CAKE (e.g. rug or…

An ecosystem to simple & secure farming.

📈 Origin Story

Squirrel Finance platform launched on Ethereum in 2020 with the rise of DeFi farming. The problem introduced was some of these experimental farming projects can leave unsavvy farmers exposed if something were to go wrong. Because of the crazy APR % some of these can offer in the first few days, many users completely neglect to account for the possible risks introduced (Yolo-farming). Insure was designed to mitigate this by providing farm insurance cover, e.g. compensation should something go wrong whilst farming.

However the tokenomics of NUTS on eth was not fitting with the current landscape, besides the coverage it…


Below outlines our plan to shortly launch an improved v2 of our platform on the growing BSC chain & the plan for eth redemption of existing tokens:

Whats happening?
With the recent rise of yield farming on BSC we believe there is a grand opportunity for our DeFi insurance platform to thrive with new tokenomics. These powerful tokenomics along with the catalyst of a new launch & vast amount of new farms available to cover give Squirrel a great opportunity to expand.

New tokenomics? Why not just update the current token on eth? The existing NUTS token had a fixed…

Marketing updates 🌎

Following on from last weeks article, continued trialling some more marketing to help kickstart things, and looking at price since last month seems we are making steady progress in growing. Last week did an additional £120 worth of twitters ads but instead of promoting account (for 30 more followers) was a sponsored tweet to get clicks to Squirrel.Finance homepage, roughly same price per engagement as last week (£3.58) but if they land on…

Welcome back to another weekly project update, thanks to everyone who gave feedback on the previous weeks 👍

Marketing updates 🌎

As mentioned in last week’s article, will be continuing new efforts to grow community & adoption of the two products. In the past week have trialled two concepts, the first being an arbitrary NUTS airdrop to recently active addresses (idea being they see 2 NUTS in their etherscan and check out the project) first trialled with 50 addresses, but since the only cost is the gas we can trial more in future to…

Progress last week 📢

Now that both products have left beta, current focus is on improving & marketing the ecosystem to help adoption of Stash & Insure. Last week (after fixing some MetaMask v9 connection issues) started to reach out to some youtube/twitter people to look for some promotion options to get us back on the radar. Also posted in /r/cryptomoonshots afew days ago and as well as this also updated the outdated “About” medium article to…

Second Stash Plugin Live 🎉

Last week we released our second plugin you can optionally add to your Stash! This plugin allows you to stake Eth into the Insure dapp (providing eth collateral for BarnBridge farm) directly from your Stash & earn BOND. So if you’re already using eth to farm Insure you might as well move (when gas is low) and farm from your Stash to better secure your assets! To add a new DeFi plugin is…

Second Stash Plugin 🚧

In last week’s article I mentioned development of the second stash plugin (farming BOND with USDC via Insure) however unfortunately found that the current version of Insure doesn’t support USDC farming via smart contracts, so a plugin (which is a smart contract) wouldn’t work. Small temporary setback but a similar plugin can & has been developed this week: providing eth collateral to Insure for the USDC farm. …
