Popular cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have caught the imagination of the world, even as they remain highly volatile.
Many think of these emerging technologies like crypto coins and Blockchain as the ultimate solution to end the corporatization of the internet, along with being the means to end government intervention on liberty, currency and privacy.
Today, any kind of financial service, like an insurance claim, loan, asset management, or even stock trading requires the go-ahead from banking institutions and other middlemen who can seize your assets if you default even slightly.
Decentralized Finance(DeFi) cuts the middleman and puts everyone on the same platform, with no need for any bank loan officer if one needs to borrow some money.
To run this transparent and secure Blockchain system, there are Stablecoins, cryptocurrency tokens tied to Gold or US Dollars to help avoid volatility.
Blockchain transactions are flexible, transparent, automated and highly efficient. They make no distinction between wealthy people and normal, ordinary customers, and run on open-source software.
This explains the crypto market value of 69 billion USD as of August 2021, all in less than two years. As the total global financial sector hovers around USD 20 trillion, there is a lot of room for crypto growth.
While Decentralized Finance is hot, there are next-level risks due to the highly volatile and instant nature of the digital world. Example: There is no banker or auditor to reverse transactions made in error.
Financial regulators and other entities are moving fast to contain the ‘damage’ on their existing infrastructure with new laws that may be overreaching and controversial.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
