DeFi - The Gateway to Decentralized Finance

Decentralized Finance (DeFi) represents a powerful shift in the financial system, moving away from traditional, centralized financial systems towards a decentralized model enabled by blockchain technology.

Despite the potential benefits and freedom associated with decentralized finance, it is not without its risks.
