Hot Financial Stocks To Buy Right Now

Decentralized finance, also known as DeFi, is a blockchain-based finance form that does not depend on central financial intermediaries such as exchanges, banks, or brokerages to provide traditional instruments. Instead, it utilizes blockchain's smart contracts, with Ethereum being at the top of the list.

DeFi platforms allow people to borrow or lend funds from others, trade cryptocurrencies, insure against risks, and use derivatives to speculate the price movements on a set of assets. It also allows users to generate interest in savings-like accounts.

For many startups, Ethereum (ETH) was the go-to network for decentralized finance applications. That was naturally due to Ethereum's advantage of being a first-mover. And not to forget, ETH played a foundational role in the 2017 and 2018 token sale bonanza. 

Even today, it still serves as one of the backbones of many crypto projects. 

This year, however, all that changed in the DeFi sector. After a blockbuster 2020, the DeFi market grew by leaps, increasing the total locked value by over 50 times within 12 months. 

However, this market is not a single entity. Instead, it's a loose structure of interrelated projects, such as yield farming, lending, and algorithmic trading.
