Many new users feel overwhelmed when first entering the crypto and DeFi space.

Have you ever heard of Decentralised Finance (DeFi)? It is a rapidly growing blockchain-based movement that offers benefits such as transparency, security, efficiency, and immutability, and is steadily on track to augment traditional financial systems and services. A number of fin-tech organisations are starting to integrate blockchain technology into their existing apps and programs, however, there is still a learning curve to overcome as many users navigate their way through the new world of DeFi technology.

In considering DeFi, many users carry assumptions over from their knowledge of traditional, centralised finance (CeFi) applications, which proves to be unhelpful when trying…


The cryptocurrency market was valued at USD 1.03 billion by 2019 and is projected to reach USD 1.40 billion in 2024.

So, what exactly is cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrency is a digital form of money. The mathematical field of cryptography is used to create the coins, which can then be used to buy goods and services.

Paying with cryptocurrency is as easy as tapping your smartphone wallet to the merchant’s tablet device.

Earlier this year, the US Congress was debating a massive financial package for reviving the pandemic-stricken economy. The House of Democrats in the USA proposed a bill that would enable the creation of a “digital wallet or digital dollar”. Why would they do this? Most probably to create a sovereign cryptocurrency. The world is moving towards a financial ecosystem where sovereign cryptocurrencies will eventually replace traditional paper currencies. Today, many countries have already created their own cryptocurrencies! The most recent being China.

Cryptocurrencies are the latest manifestation in cashless transactions and quite probably, will eventually replace credit and debit cards…

DeFi, or Decentralised Finance, is currently one of the biggest developments in the blockchain and cryptocurrency sector… and for good reason! DeFi uses blockchains, crypto assets, and smart contracts to extend financial services to customers such as loans, investments, payments, derivatives, remittances, etc. In contrast to the decentralisation of money through Bitcoin, DeFi aims for a broader approach of generally decentralising the traditional financial industry.

DeFi is a relatively new concept and an expansion of its application scope rests on the blockchain. …
