🥷🏼 Twitter Spaces. Squads x Katana: Where do Katana yields come from?

A few weeks ago we announced an integration with Katana protocol which allows Squads users to earn a yield on crypto directly within Squads without the need to withdraw funds to an individual wallet. Last week we hosted Twitter spaces with Ayush Menon — the founder of Katana protocol, who explained what are the Katana strategies, and how is the yield generated behind the automated sophisticated strategy, and answered a few questions from our community members. We want to thank Ayush for such an interesting and insightful conversation and announce the next Twitter spaces talk with DAO organization platform Sobol this Friday 13th of May at 1 PM EST.
