What is DeFi?

Decentralized Finance or "DeFi" refers to a range of decentralized protocols building open financial infrastructure. Most of them are built on top of a blockchain and can be executed without the need of a middleman ensuring that the individuals are the sole custodian of their assets at all times. However, it is worth mentioning that there are different levels of decentralization. For example, some protocols have centralized price feeds or a central administer platform. This is why some people prefer to call it open finance.

What can I do with Defire?

Defire allows developers to execute different type of DeFi operations while tracking metrics and transactions over time. With a few lines of code, a developer can borrow a maker loan, lend digital assets to earn interest, trade them on Uniswap or for the best rate and lowest slippage on a DEX aggregator, play the no-loss lottery with PoolTogether, etc.
