On the other hand, YFI is a governance token built to reward users who use the yearn.finance Defi protocol created by Andre Cronje. YFI token since its inception has soared from $32 to more than $11700 in just a month and is believed to continue with the surge.

The three key reasons for the massive jump is said to be the release of yInsure Finance, an increase in demand for Defi protocols that recently crossed $15 billion market cap and the hype created by some of the crypto bulls.
