A user, Jsimo01, is confused about their negative APY despite favorable lending and borrowing rates on Aave, and the community, especially EzR3aL, is actively providing support and guidance, including directing the user to the official Aave discord for reliable assistance. There's no identified negative impact from this situation, and the user is advised to verify information through trusted sources like X or Coingecko.

What is this about?

The discussion revolves around a user, Jsimo01, who is experiencing confusion regarding their Annual Percentage Yield (APY). They are puzzled by the fact that their overall APY is negative (-6.86%) despite providing collateral with a healthy factor of 1.3 and earning 0.18% on it, while borrowing at a rate of -4.83% in GHO token.
