Decentralized Finance, or DeFi for short, is a brand-new sector in digital finance which includes digital assets, protocols, smart contracts, and dApps built on pubic blockchains.
Decentralization means that there is no single point of failure, as identical records are kept across thousands of computers through a peer-to-peer network. These networks are permissionless, it is also open to anyone — irrespective of their wealth or where they live. And, whereas a bank or a payment processing company can close the account of an unsavory customer, blockchains are censorship resistant.
At the beating heart of the drive toward DeFi are decentralized applications, also called dApps. These plug-and-play tools make it easy for anyone with a smartphone to access financial services at lower costs.
Edge wallet is a blockchain asset management app that leverages various decentralized exchanges and dApps. Paul Puey is a cofounder and CEO of Edge, coming to visit us from their HQ in San Diego to speak about the latest trends in DeFi, the different applications he’s seeing built and how Edge is helping the average person leverage these new financial tools.
