What is DeFi crypto?

Decentralised Finance (or simply DeFi) refers to an ecosystem of financial applications built to disrupt the financial world. DeFi crypto are the cryptocurrencies that power these DeFi projects.

The DeFi movement was first ignited by the famously known Bitcoin blockchain project. That is, DeFi projects aim to leverage the blockchain technology to transform financial projects to increase trust and transparency through the system.

Most of these DeFi applications are built on-top of the Ethereum network largely because of Ethereum’s powerful smart contract capability. Some popular DeFi projects have been relating to:

Uniswap (UNI)

The Uniswap Protocol (Uniswap) is a trustless, and completely decentralised financial framework. Uniswap is a decentralised exchange hosted on the Ethereum blockchain, as an open source front end. It’s a 100% on-chain market maker allowing the swapping of ERC20 tokens with Ethereum and with the launch of Uniswap V2; ERC20 to ERC20 swaps.

It also allows you to contribute to liquidity pools, and gain commissions from exchange fees as an incentive. Uniswap has experienced exponential growth in the 2nd quarter of 2020 with the emergence of the DeFi industry.

The introduction of the UNI (ERC-20) token serves as the governance token which was distributed to the public enabling shared ownership which will guide the protocol.

yearn.finance Logo

Yearn.finance (YFI)

YFI is a DeFI yeild farming system created to make it easier for users to automate their yield farming strategies.

Yearn.finance (YFI) is an ERC-20 governance token that powers the community governance of the Yearn.Finance system.

Yearn is a collection of DeFi services, intended to act as a simple gateway for the wider DeFi ecosystem. Its highlight is the ability to automatically invest user deposits in the highest-yielding place available in the DeFi ecosystem, through Yearn Vaults. The service doesn't come for free though, as performance fees and other costs are extracted along the way. These fees can be paid to YFI token holders as dividends, in an amount the community of token holders agrees on.

This is where holding YFI governance token can be lucrative as it receives a cut of the fees within the Yearn.Finance platform, and holders can vote to change, increase or add any other mechanisms.

Compound (COMP)

Compound is an algorithmic, autonomous interest rate protocol built for developers, to unlock a universe of open financial applications.

Compound (COMP) is an ERC-20 asset that empowers community governance of the Compound protocol; COMP token-holders and their delegates debate, propose, and vote on all changes to the protocol.

By placing COMP directly into the hands of users and applications, an increasingly large ecosystem will be able to upgrade the protocol, and will be incentivized to collectively steward the protocol into the future with good governance.

Balancer logo

Balancer (BAL)

A Balancer Pool is an automated market maker with certain key properties that cause it to function as a self-balancing weighted portfolio and price sensor.

Balancer turns the concept of an index fund on its head: instead of paying fees to portfolio managers to rebalance your portfolio, you collect fees from traders, who rebalance your portfolio by following arbitrage opportunities.

BAL is the governance token to the Balancer protocol, and are a keyway of decentralizing the governance of the protocol such that it remains resilient over time, and protected from the failure of any single stakeholder.
