What is DeFi?

DeFi is short for “decentralized finance” and represents equivalents to financial instruments such as trading, borrowing or lending, with the distinction that they are running exclusively on the blockchain through one or multiple interconnected smart contracts.

DeFi products are seen as potential replacements for traditional finance, thanks to their abilities of offering the same features, but operating 24/7, at lower cost and without requiring human intervention.
