What does Decentralized Finance (DeFi) mean?

DeFi Insights by DezentralizedFinance.com

 

In simple words, decentralized finance or DeFI is a concept where traditional financial services (lending, trading, borrowing etc.) and products are available to use on a public decentralized blockchain. It is open to any individual and avoiding to go through middlemen like corporations, banks or brokerage firms. When you use a bank or trading account you need a government-issued ID, your social security number and proof of address.

At the moment (regulation is moving slowly) you don’t need these attributes in the DeFi world. More specifically, in the DeFi world you can use these financial services via using and trusting a digital blockchain-based smart contract. You believe in code and less in people. In the DeFi system, software written on blockchains makes it possible for buyers and sellers and lenders and borrowers to interact peer-to-peer without a middleman.

The financial world is changing fast, and DeFi will have a massive disruptive impact on that industry in the next decade.

Different technologies and network structures are used to achieve the goal of pure decentralization. As an example, a decentralized system can consist of a mixture of open-source protocols, blockchain, and software.

Smart contracts automate agreements between buyers and sellers or lenders and borrowers to make these new products usable. By design DeFi systems are structured to remove intermediaries between two parties.

TOP 20 DeFi Newsletters & TOP 20 DeFi Podcasts

Top DeFi Newsletters and Podcasts

 

Education is King! Learning about DeFi and Web 3.0 will pay off in the future, as the new basic finance and internet infrastructure is built at the moment. To get a good knowledge base it is important to follow different sources of content.

Therefore DezentralizedFinance.com is updating the DeFi newsletter and DeFi podcast list on a frequent level. Search for newsletter sand podcasts that fit your profile, follow them and learn as much about the new decentralized world as you can. We recommend following a few of these content creators and read or hear the content once a week, maybe on the weekends to stay up to date in the DeFi ecosystem. Podcasts are very easy to consume, also in the car or public transport system. So you can use the time when you move from A to B very effectively.

Next to consuming content, we recommend collecting practical experience by using the DeFi protocols, tools and services. Downloading a wallet, connecting a wallet with a DeFi application and being active with your tokens (farming, lending or liquidity providing) can bring you more than reading a whole crypto book.

As we are pretty early in the DeFi development we recommend only using very small amounts of tokens when you test the applications. Please also read our Risk Disclaimer, as it is possible to lose 100% of the used tokens. Crypto is a high-risk asset.

Back to the DeFi content. DezentralizedFinance.com will summarize the content of different DeFi newsletter editions in our DeFi Newsletter Aggregator. You can sign up for the DeFi newsletter aggregator here. The DeFi news aggregator will be published every 7-14 days.

I am looking forward to your feedback about our DeFi newsletters & podcasts database and the unique DeFi providers if you have gathered experience. Our databases are updated regularly.
