Best DeFi Newsletters of 2020

Decentralized finance has been breaking records in recent weeks. Almost all of the DeFi tokens have increased disproportionately in value from April to date (see Comp, KNC, PNT, RDN, BNT and so on) and the Total Value Locked (TVL) in USD has reached record figures, touching $1.6 billion. These positive pieces of news have attracted the interest of many people who didn’t know the industry, hence we think it’s time to compile a list of Newsletters to follow in this niche sector in order to keep up to date and not miss any DeFi news and/or tutorials. Here it is!

ETHHUB

We believe that DeFi is synonymous with Ethereum, so this newsletter is definitely one of the best around. It focuses on the Ethereum world and offers a weekly overview of everything that happens in the DeFi space. The main website also offers podcasts and guides for both developers and end-users, available at docs.ethhub.io! The newsletter, managed by Anthony Sassano and Eric Conner (two famous names in the field and very active on Twitter) has reached its 119th weekly edition (published on June 22nd) and is a great starting point for anyone interested in this new and rapidly growing world! Cost? Free!

THE DEFIANT

This newsletter is available free of charge, however, to take full advantage of all content it is necessary to subscribe for $10 per month or $100 per year. Free subscribers receive a weekly newsletter, news briefings and a sample of some interviews. Paying subscribers have access to exclusive interviews (with full-text transcript), in-depth content, a private chat and much more. The manager of the newsletter is Camila Russo, another well-known name in DeFi who has also worked as a financial journalist in Bloomberg in the past. A name that can be trusted! 

BANKLESS

As the name suggests, this amazing newsletter was created for those who would like a world without banks. A world where the technology behind cryptocurrencies is in charge. It focuses on Bitcoin, Ethereum, DeFi and everything that revolves around open finance. It’s managed by David Hoffman and Ryan Sean Adams (with the help of some publishers, full list). Here you can find exclusive guides as well as news from the DeFi world. The cost of the newsletter is $12 per month or $115 per year. An investment that we definitely recommend to all those who want to be part of the bankless revolution towards a more decentralized and less controlled future!

WEEK IN ETHEREUM

As can be deduced from the name, this great newsletter briefly summarizes all the weekly news coming from the world of Ethereum. Here you can find useful links every week for learning how to make better use of this technology or perhaps to take advantage of some investment opportunities. Over the last few weeks, the newsletter has divided its news into two sections; one dedicated to ETH1 and the other to ETH2 (which should make its debut in these months, perhaps already after the summer). The newsletter is managed by a person with a great Twitter following: Evan Van Ness. At the moment the subscription is free!

DEFI TUTORIALS

A very nice newsletter that instead of publishing news, it releases step-by-step tutorials (with images) to better understand how to use all DeFi products. At the moment there are some great guides like: ‘How to earn interest on your ETH with MyCrypto’, ‘How to use the Aethereum wallet’, ‘How to use the Zapper.Fi dashboard’, ‘The Ultimate Guide to Uniswap’, ‘The Ultimate Guide to Synthetix’ and much more. The newsletter appears to be managed by the team behind Zapper (the merger of DeFiZap and DeFiSnap we have already talked about), so there are also a lot of tutorials related to this project. It is a free newsletter that is not updated regularly. Worth checking out!

DEFI WEEKLY

This is another great newsletter. It is managed by $KERMAN, a guy who has been in business since an early age and who sold his first company at the age of 20. Subsequently, he decided to actively participate in the crypto and DeFi sector, also starting this newsletter at a cost of $10 per month or $100 per year. It covers various topics and projects such as: How to bring bitcoin to Ethereum, Why invest in ETH, How does Synthetix work, How does Compound’s liquidity mining work and other technical guides to get a better understanding of this space. The newsletter seems to be quite regular (only in June it already has 7 publications).
