Decentralized Finance was significant part of the cryptocurrency market this year and a point of great hype for many people. At the moment, around $14 billion is locked there. While this amount is quite significant, it is relatively small when comparing it to the world’s financial system. This is 2% of all the whole cryptocurrency market cap and those are the people who see the potential of this direction for the financial markets.
What came as the result of that? More and more countries are starting to regulate the market. It is likely that certain taxes will be implemented targeting wallets as well as compulsory identification. Binance, according to their memorandum, is likely to share your details with the regulators. Therefore, it raises the question, where should you hold your assets?
There are three choices. The first one is centralized exchanges. However, they are almost the same as the banks you were running away from. Cryptocurrency was supposed to be an alternative but the same problems remain. The second choice is mobile wallets where you could hold some small amounts of your funds. However, the last and your most likely choice is the cold wallet, since the bank is now in your own hands. The problem is that if you choose to trade your assets, you would have to go back to the centralized exchanges and expose your personal wallets for potential taxes and regulations.
However, there is a solution to this problem – DeFi! This is the reason why it was hyped so much. We are personally interested in its benefits and have launched our own platform on December 15th. What is next for the DeFi market? It is likely that many new features will be implemented, such as marginal trading, lending and, I personally believe, it will provide an option to digitalize stocks in the form of security tokens or synthetic assets trading, which you will be able to trade on similar decentralized platforms. We are right now in the 21st century – an era on information. It has just began. My main aim, as an investor, is to follow the trend. DeFi, without a doubt is such trend, the one I will stick to.
