A $6.8 billion pension fund based in Virginia plans to start investing in crypto lending markets. The Fairfax County Retirement Systems recently received approval from its board of trustees to begin investing in yield farming. The decision comes despite crypto lending being at the center of this year’s credit crisis in digital asset markets, which has landed retail investors with heavy losses and bankrupted several companies. “Some of the yields that you’re able to achieve in a yield farming strategy are really attractive because some of the people have stepped back from that space,” said Kath ..read more

But it also depends on whether the crypto institutions involved are established players or ex ..read more
