What Is DeFi?


Today, I’m going to discuss decentralized finance, better known as “DeFi”. I’ll define the term, go through the ins and outs, and tell you why you should pay attention to DeFi.

We’ll also answer the following questions, including:

What is “DeFi”?

  • “DeFi” stands for decentralized finance, which is a growing movement towards an open and globally deregulated financial system.
  • DeFi is an open alternative to every financial service you use today.

What makes DeFi better than traditional/centralized finance or CeFi?

  • DeFi application platforms, known as Dapps, are not managed by an institution or its employees. The rules are written in the code behind the smart contracts on the blockchain and are mostly written with Etherum.
  • These smart contracts have the ability to run themselves with no human intervention. This automated capability reduces transaction costs, increases transaction speed and eliminates the most unreliable and error prone element of traditional contracts, the human factor.

Why is DeFi important?

  • Decentralized finance platforms are currently playing catch up against traditional
    centralized platforms, but it is only a matter of time before everything becomes
  • Alternative lending and borrowing solutions thru Dapps can be used to bypass poor
    credit scores by using crypto to borrow more crypto. The usefulness of Dapps is growing
    rapidly, with more and more people in the millennial and Gen Z demographic.
