Decentralized Finance

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.

The New World Order

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.

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!
