DeFi Growth

Despite Bitcoin experiencing exceptional growth this year, most of the talk has been around DeFi. Decentralized finance is cutting out centralized parties in finance, and introduces peer-to-peer ecosystems through smart contracts. With over one billion people being unbanked around the world, DeFi is creating “open finance,” and is offering game changing protocols in areas like lending. As mentioned in a previous report, the DeFi markets have seen unprecedented growth since 2017. According to DeFi Pulse, a $4 market in August 2017 is now valued at nearly $8 billion.
