For months, the DeFi space has been making a name for its self as being one of the hottest decentralized services in the cryptocurrency space. DeFi Pulse, a dedicated DeFi tracking index has shown an increase of over 9 billion dollars in value locked in DeFi contracts since the start of 2020.The rise of DeFi can be attributed to a multitude of reasons ranging from its low barrier of entry to its speculative hype. DeFi, or decentralized finance, offers financial services that were otherwise provided through traditional financial institutions to anyone with little more than an internet connection.
The DeFi space as it stands today includes projects which support varying forms of staking, farming, and lending. Currently, the primary marketplace for nearly all DeFi projects is UniSwap, a decentralized cryptocurrency exchange well known for topping some of the largest centralized exchanges. A recent report from the popular crypto news outlet “CoinDesk” reported how Uniswap logged in a whopping 1 billion dollars in 24-hour trading volume. These surprising figures surpassed even those coming from CoinBase Pro, the U. S’s largest centralized cryptocurrency exchange.
While DeFi has shown much promise in a relatively short period of time, its infancy has revealed a few growing pains in the form of fraudulent actors trying to take advantage of the hype. In just the past few months alone, crypto headlines have been riddled with stories of deliberate and accidental code exploits in DeFi smart contracts and even complete liquidation of team tokens on Uniswap. While this does damper the DeFi image, growing pains should be expected in any new decentralized technology. This now leaves us with a lingering multi-billion-dollar question, “how can DeFi mature and flourish from its minefield era to the next frontier in decentralization?”
While this may seem like a daunting question, the answer is surprisingly quite simple…
