DeFi News

Decentralized finance, also known as DeFi, is a sector within the overall cryptocurrency and blockchain industry focused on providing a decentralized version of mainstream financial opportunities. In the mainstream world, financial institutions offer customers access to opportunities such as cash storage and loans. However, these offerings are governed by centralized entities.

With the help of distributed ledger technology, or DLT, DeFi solutions offer a number of the same opportunities, but they are controlled by a large number of participants who abide by rules enforced by smart contracts. DeFi solutions also often give greater flexibility in terms of users’ ability to store and control their own assets. Additionally, decentralized exchanges, or DEXs, further decentralize digital asset trading, in contrast to trading on centralized digital asset platforms.
