What is decentralized finance?
Decentralized finance refers to the infrastructure and technologies used to disintermediate financial services and transactions. Decentralized finance, also known as DeFi, is a segment of the cryptocurrency market that does not rely on central financial intermediaries. Smart contracts built on top of blockchains take the place of traditional service providers like banks, exchanges, lenders and other financial services providers.
What is a DEX?
A decentralized exchange (DEX) is a peer-to-peer marketplace where transactions occur directly between cryptocurrency traders. The traders are in control of their private keys when transacting on a DEX platform, unlike on centralized exchanges.
How do liquidity pools work?
Liquidity pools operate by users pooling their assets in a DEX’s smart contract to provide liquidity to specific markets. This concept is also known as liquidity mining. These liquidity pools are smart contracts that lock in tokens to ensure liquidity on decentralized exchanges. Users who provide tokens to the smart contract are called liquidity providers and are incentivized for their contribution with rewards. The incentive structures for contributing assets to liquidity pools is what has rapidly drawn users to DeFi protocols.
