7 min readFeb 6, 2023

Before the year 2022 ended, we launched a 30-question exam that revolves around DeFi and the Hakka ecosystem, to test our community’s knowledge.

Out of the 300+ participants of the test, 2 users got a perfect score of 30/30, earning them 50,000 HAKKA token rewards each.

For this time only, we will be revealing the key answers to the quiz, even explaining some of the questions that our community got confused bout.

The answers are in bold letters.

1. What does “DeFi” mean in crypto terminology?

DeFi or Decentralized Finance is a more open, transparent, and inclusive financial system that is achieved through the deployment of decentralized, blockchain-based technologies.

It includes a variety of financial services and products, such as lending and borrowing, trading, insurance, and more, all of which are based on decentralized networks and permit peer-to-peer exchanges without the use of middlemen.

Regardless of location, credit history, or financial situation, anyone with an internet connection can access financial services thanks to DeFi.

2. What is one of the main use cases of DeFi?

Lending, borrowing, and staking are some of the most common features of a DeFi.

3. What does “DAO” mean in crypto?

Decentralized Autonomous Organization is the abbreviation for DAO.

This particular sort of organization is governed by smart contracts, which are computer programs that are coded as rules and run on a blockchain network.

A DAO runs on a decentralized network and is autonomous, meaning it is run by its members in accordance with its rules and code rather than being managed by a central organization or person.

Owners of the DAO’s tokens hold the right to vote on proposals and control the DAO’s course of action.

DAOs can offer a new degree of accountability and efficiency compared to traditional organizations since they are transparent because all transactions and operations are recorded on a public ledger.

4. How many products does Hakka Finance have?

Currently, there are 7 Hakka products that are active: iGain IG, iGain IRS, Hakka Intelligence, 3F Mutual, BlackHoleSwap, Hakka Harvester, and Hakka Play-to-Earn.

5. What is the main token of the Hakka ecosystem that also grants you ownership of the Hakka Guild Bank assets?

The HAKKA token is the main token that administers the Hakka Finance ecosystem. This token also has an intrinsic value in a form of ETH, MKR, BHSc, and USDC, which can be realized when burned in the Hakka Guild Bank.

6. What is 3F Mutual?

3F Mutual is an insurance platform that hedges your positions against MakerDAO’s shutdown and DAI de-pegging.

7. Which of the following blockchains are Hakka Finance products not available?

8. Which Hakka Finance product fixes DeFi lending/borrowing interest rates?

iGain IRS is a Hakka Finance product that hedges fluctuating interest rates in DeFi.

The iGain IRS platform uses LONG and SHORT derivative tokens to keep your rates stable, despite the market volatility.

9. What kind of derivative token do you need to buy if you don’t want your stablecoins lending rates to decrease on iGain IRS?

When wanting to fix your lending interest rates on iGain IRS, you would need to buy SHORT tokens, so that whenever the lending APR (annual percentage rate) goes down, you will still earn from your SHORT tokens, thereby covering the losses you would have incurred.

On the other hand, buying LONG tokens is necessary to keep your borrowing interest rates stable, because you wouldn’t want your rates to go higher.

10. What is the token granting you voting power in the Hakka Finance DAO?

The sHAKKA is the governance token of Hakka Finance, and this token gives you the power to vote on the Hakka DAO and decide the future of Hakka through its Snapshot website.

12. If you stake the official token of Hakka Finance, which token will you get in exchange?

The official and main token of Hakka Finance is the HAKKA token. When staked in the Hakka Finance server, HAKKA produces sHAKKA, which is the governance token of the Hakka ecosystem.

13. Which on-chain event will trigger 3F Mutual to release all the ETH in its pool to all its active stakeholders?

If MakerDAO officially declares an Emergency Shutdown, the 3F Mutual smart contract will be automatically triggered to release ETH to those with active 3F Mutual insurance.

14. What is impermanent loss?

Impermanent loss happens when the value of the tokens you put in a liquidity pool is lower compared to when you just held them.

Most of the DeFi liquidity pools today are powered by Automated Market Maker, which is simply a mechanism that follows the formula, x * y = k.

16. Which one is not an example of a derivative?

Futures, Options, and Swaps are some of the most common types of derivatives in the financial market.

Spot, on the other hand, is the opposite of a derivative since the asset you are buying is not derived from other assets.

17. True or False: HAKKA Token holders can burn their tokens in exchange for ETH in the Guild Bank.

This one is true. The HAKKA token has an intrinsic value supported by ETH, MKR, BHSc, and USDC, that can be realized when burned in the Guild Bank.

Impermanent loss is a common occurrence in liquidity pools, but with iGain IG, the most common culprit can now be avoided.
