Decentralized Finance (or DeFi) is an emerging category of financial applications that are being developed on top of trustless networks.
Smart contracts promise a powerful new way of doing business. Yet in the noise of the blockchain and cryptocurrency space, the power of these self-executing contracts pre-programmed into blockchains is sometimes overlooked or altogether misunderstood.
Similar to how the Internet revolutionized the way people process information and connect with one another, smart contracts can fundamentally change the way societies make and keep agreements among individuals and groups.
