With the DeFi boom in 2020 we have seen the birth of many portals, blogs, forums, Telegram groups and newsletters dedicated entirely to this new niche in the crypto world. The interest in decentralized finance has grown so much that the total value locked, i.e. the total amount of money in DeFi, has exceeded $40 billion. Among the new DeFi projects that have emerged in 2020 there is also a great newsletter that we have been following since the very first time it was sent out since, besides being free, it is one of the best newsletters in the entire crypto world. Who are we talking about? DeFiToday!
DeFiToday – Why follow the newsletter
Being among the first subscribers of this newsletter we can review it in brief, hoping to convince you to subscribe. First of all, DeFiToday usually uses the same layout and content: an intro with general news from the crypto and DeFi world, a part completely dedicated to decentralized finance, technical analysis for bitcoin and Ethereum, the best news of the week and finally some exclusive articles or interviews with well-known names and faces in the crypto sphere or the DeFi niche!
The Opening Piece – This is my favourite part as it analyses the entire crypto sector and everything that happened during the week. The piece is written by ‘Zio Romolo’, one of the best known Italian crypto traders in the world. I remember reading in one of the articles that Zio Romolo, together with a friend who is anonymous for now, predicted the strong rise of bitcoin as early as May 2020, when the sector was in an absolute bearish situation. In short, a visionary trader who can provide insight into the markets even before the trend changes. In recent issues he has also added some much appreciated aphorisms, which are present at the start of each new issue!
DeFi Section – Perhaps the most important section of the entire newsletter, as it is a part that analyses the DeFi for that particular week. Here you can find the total value locked with a screenshot from DeFi Pulse, the number of trades of the main DEXs (Uniswap, 1Inch etc) and the trading volume on the DEXs in the last week. Great for keeping up to date with the DeFi world in a few lines!
Next is a short news section where you can find 5 important news items carefully chosen by the editors. Usually the news are general, both from the DeFi world and the crypto world.
BTC and ETH Technical Analysis – The favourite part of the traders. Analyses are carried out by Zio Romolo and cover the two main cryptocurrencies. There are charts of both bitcoin and Ethereum, with a nice bonus: BTC Options analysis and ETH Options analysis. Great for understanding the trend and areas that act as support or resistance. And believe me, Zio Romolo almost always gets them right! Definitely not to be missed!
Exclusive Interview or Exclusive Piece – This last part is usually occupied by some exclusive article or interview. In recent weeks there have been interviews with DeFi artists, Binance Smart Chain, Bitfinex, Zilliqa and many other big names. A must-see highlight!
Recently the newsletter has also introduced some pieces on NFTs, as the topic is now closely linked to the DeFi world. To subscribe to the newsletter you can go to this link and do so for free. The platform used is SubStack and the newsletter is published weekly! (Friday or Saturday morning)
