This is a proposal to consolidate the two domain names associated with yearn.finance (yearn.finance and ygov.finance) and update the sitemap to improve usability and add security to the platform.
If implemented, the entire yearn.finance ecosystem will be under a single yearn.finance domain name. It will also update the sitemap to be more user friendly, improve security, and increase trust, which will ultimately lead to more investors and more profits for all.
There are currently two different domain names used in the yearn.finance ecosystem:
https://yearn.finance/ which includes Earn, Zap, APR, and Vaults.
– It also includes the subdomain https://gov.yearn.finance/, which can’t even be accessed from the main https://yearn.finance/ page
- https://ygov.finance/ which includes staking (V1 and V2) and voting (V1 and V2)
Having two different domains is confusing and is not user friendly. Having multiple domains also opens up the opportunity for malicious actors to try to scam unwitting users. For example, someone could set up a yearngov.finance page and have a scam staking link.
By consolidating the domain, it will add trust to users that the funds they are depositing is the correct site.
Will defer to community members more experienced in site mapping and UX than me…
- For: Consolidate into one domain and update sitemap
- Against: Leave things as is
