Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and Traditional Finance (TradFi)

Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and Traditional Finance (TradFi)

There is a core need for an open, transparent, and secure financial system and that TradFi simply doesn’t provide that. Essentially, DeFi positions itself as an alternative to the banking system we currently have.

One of the arguments for DeFi is that because it is a blockchain-based concept, it is outside of governmental and regulatory control.

This has a strong appeal to those who are concerned about what we have learned about personal data collection by commercial entities and governments.

DeFi answers the desire for data security and privacy.

DeFi Vs TradFi

DeFi Vs TradFi

1. In DeFi the public blockchain is the source of trust, whereas in TradFi it is regulatory bodies that are the source of trust.

2. DeFi is gaining traction because it is open and transparent, and there are fewer barriers to accessing it. The opposite is true of TradFi, especially in terms of the barriers to access, which leaves billions of people unbanked worldwide.

3. TradFi has its hands tied by regulatory forces, which makes it extremely difficult for its institutions to act with the same agility as DeFi projects.

Use Cases For DeFi: Banking

Use Cases For DeFi: Banking

Unlike TradFi, DeFi projects are able to offer banking without borders. TradFi struggles with this, and as mentioned before, this has left billions globally without a banking service. DeFi’s use of blockchain technology overcomes that issue and allows people in developing countries and remote areas access to banking via their mobile phones.

Use Cases For DeFi: Circumventing Oppressive governments

Use Cases For DeFi: Circumventing Oppressive governments

Oppressive governments are prone to issuing bans and restrictions on financial movement. TradFi can’t offer solutions, but again, because DeFi uses the blockchain and associated tools, it is able to circumvent government restrictions and provide uncensored global financial services.

Creative Finance

Creative Finance

There is a level of creativity in DeFi projects in terms of developing new features and functions. In the past TradFi had a monopoly on financial products, but even those products associated with TradFi can be moved over onto the blockchain, giving DeFi another advantage.

Challenges Faced by DeFi

Challenges Faced by DeFi

The biggest challenge with De Fi is getting the general public to trust the idea of unregulated open-source code.

Cryptocurrency doesn’t yet have mass adoption and there is widespread mistrust of it, which bleeds over into the DeFi sector by association. There are fears about hacks among other things. Indeed, the DeFi tech is still in its infancy, with much work to be done to make it more trustworthy for a wider audience beyond DeFi fans.

The Bottom Line

The Bottom Line

Ultimately, DeFi has a way to go, but it undoubtedly has potential, and certainly as a way to give more people access to banking services. If it works hard on scalability, security, and liquidity, it has a real opportunity to replace TradFi.
