In the space of crypto, especially in the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) space, users have to understand the risks of projects and smart contracts before venturing into DeFi. We call this DYOR (do your own research).

General DeFi Risks

DeFi risks encapsulates a wide range of risks such as impermanent loss to risks of falling for scams such as wallet draining, private key being stolen, etc.. Hence, DeFi users have to be careful themselves and learn to educate themselves constantly in this space. You can find a guide to keeping your funds SAFU here.

3rd Party Risks

Frankenstein.finance serves as a yield aggregator by providing vaults which auto-compound rewards. However, vaults do not indicate any partnership or support by Frankenstein.finance. We've mitigated this risk by splitting the vaults into individual yield farms.

Other Risks

  • Smart contract risks, both Frankenstein contracts and third parties our Vaults interact with.
  • Risks in underlying assets and smart contracts.
  • "Impermanent loss" risk.
  • Risk of StableSwap assets losing their pegs.


APRs/returns shown on the UI include the performance and the workers fees, but do not include the other fees (performance, harvest), which will result in a negative return if you enter and exit a position quickly.
High returns/APRs almost certainly mean a high risk. The calculated APR/return depends on the underlying value of the token in the vault and the token(s) being farmed, including FRANK, which can be very volatile and/or inflationary.
