The areas of blockchain application have seen numerous developments in recent years, giving rise to a multitude of decentralized applications, the so-called dApps, aimed at the innovation of different business solutions that will gradually replace traditional ones, reaching a mainstream scenario.
So far, the one that has distinguished itself more than the others is related to the birth of platforms in the decentralized financial world, which offer users various groundbreaking services related to Lending & Borrowing, Margin Trading, Derivatives, etc.. It is basically still a niche sector, but in rapid expansion and already very valuable, that will give the public additional opportunities in the next 10 years, at least. At the moment there are few realities that have a large slice of the market, making it a very concentrated market.
Among them, those that behave more like leaders are Maker, Uniswap and Synthetix, depending on the function they perform within the ecosystem.
This exponential trend related to the speed of development, besides being difficult to understand for those who are not yet part of this world, needs to be supported by solid information networks that aim to facilitate the dissemination of real-time news concerning every type of event that happens in the DeFi world. Data is becoming increasingly important in today’s society and will continue to deeply characterize history, as it already has, to the extent that it has been described as digital gold. The data set is the solid basis of information whose quality and reliability depends only on what is used to construct it.
The following is a list of the various platforms that work towards the proper disclosure of facts that are up to date with the course of events.
The main channels of communication are currently Twitter, Medium and Telegram, where it is possible to follow the continuous updates while remaining in direct connection with the accounts related to each company. Each of the three brings a different added value to the community that is dependent on the features and peculiarities that the social network offers to users.
Additionally, there are different realities immersed in the world of decentralized finance and even if they operate in different ways they all have a common purpose, which is to inform their audience about the events that characterize every day the DeFi environment.
The most complete is surely The Cryptonomist, an exhaustive blog, that besides covering generic topics about the blockchain, deals specifically with the writing of articles related to the various DeFi projects. These articles, thanks to their simplicity and efficiency, are able to reach a much wider audience than its competitors, an audience which includes both experts and newcomers in the field.
The Cryptonomist will soon launch, within its platform, a section entirely dedicated to the analysis of the different aspects born thanks to the development of DeFi which take advantage of this technology to bring improvements in their fields of application.
Next is The Defiant, essentially a content platform for decentralized finance; it takes care of all the aspects related to DeFi and analyzes the main developments that this niche sector offers to its users, while at the same time following the very rapid changes in the areas of crypto and finance.
DeFi Prime, on the other hand, provides analysis and information services to the DeFi community; its goal is to be a news centre dedicated to DeFi aimed at educating and connecting its users.
On the home page of its website, there are different sections and each of them deals with different types of information. It is possible for example to stay informed about all DeFi projects related to the various areas such as Analytics, Asset Management Tools, Insurance, Derivatives etc, those recently added to the network or upcoming events related to the DeFi world.
DeFi Pulseis the main website for real-time analysis of DeFi protocols divided into categories according to their function: Lending, DEXs, Derivatives, Payments and Asset Management.
It also offers a ranking service related to the complete list of all platforms, calculating the total value locked in the smart contracts of each of them, consisting of the total balance of ETH and ERC20 tokens.
Finally, both Coingecko and CoinMarketCap offer all the information necessary for a correct investigation of DEFI, the token related to a project that derives from the geographical area of South East Asia engaged in the field of FinTech.
