What is DeFi?

DeFi is short for ‘decentralized finance’. It’s an umbrella term for financial services on public blockchains such as Ethereum. DeFi uses emerging technology to remove third parties from financial transactions. You can use DeFi to do most things that you can do with banks, such as borrow, lend, earn insurance, trade assets and more. As well as removing the need for third parties, DeFi is faster and doesn’t require the paperwork associated with traditional banking.

DeFi for Flights FAQS

What is DeFi?

DeFi takes the basic premise of Bitcoin and expands on it. It envisions an entirely decentralised alternative to Wall Street. DeFi uses emerging technology to build a new, internet-native financial system, with the potential to create more open, free and fair financial markets. Because it is decentralized, DeFi is accessible and can benefit anyone with an internet connection.

What is DPI?

Launched in September 2020, DPI is an ERC-20 token built on the Ethereum network and is designed to serve theDeFi sector. DPI can be used to hold popular DeFi tokens within Ethereum’s DeFi ecosystem and can be bought and sold on a number of exchanges.

What are the benefits of DeFi?

DeFi is striving towards a new and revolutionary financial system. Users don’t need to apply or open an account in the same way that traditional banking requires, as you can just gain access by creating a wallet. Because it’s decentralised, users can remain anonymous and move their assets anywhere at any time, without asking for permission or paying expensive fees.

How does DeFi work?

Unlike a traditional bank, there is no application, no forms and no account to open. You can engage with DeFi via software called dapps, which stands for decentralized apps. This software mostly runs on the Ethereum blockchain. You can use DeFi for a number of functions, including: lending out your crypto and earning interest, make peer-to-peer trades of certain crypto assets, or put some of your crypto into ‘savings account’ alternatives to earn better interest rates. But these are just a few examples of the possibilities associated with DeF.
