CEO of Ethereum-focused data analytics firm Nansen, Alex Svanevik, noted on Oct. 17 that a wallet his company has labeled as that of Polychain Capital has just purchased YFI for the first time.

Crypto derivatives tracker ByBt reports that the funding rates of the YFI perpetual futures markets on Huobi and FTX currently are negative.
The funding rate is the recurring fee that long positions pay short positions to normalize the price of the future to the underlying market.
A negative funding rate suggests that shorts are still more aggressive than longs.
It is likely that the average YFI perpetual future holder on these exchanges is net short, not long as Polychain may be.
