How to start with DeFi? 

It is important to do your research about the various aspects of a DeFi protocol.

As you may know in Demat Account, where you need a bank account/UPI to load cash in your trading account to invest money in the stock market, similarly here you need to acquire crypto coins to participate in and interact with various DeFi protocols. Some wallets are on crypto exchanges, where you can purchase crypto coins. Most protocols are built on the Ethereum platform, so it is advisable to start with ERC-20 tokens.


3) DeFi Investment Opportunities -

Now, look at some protocols that make it popular for investments. 


a) DeFi Staking - 

One of the most common crypto investment options is staking. It is essentially a buy-and-stake investment strategy to earn profits in the long run. It involves locking up crypto tokens to validate transactions in the DeFi protocol. You can earn profits from transactions made within the protocol you help validate. Some Crypto staking options can make you more money than traditional savings accounts. It is a good option if you have a large amount of crypto sitting in your wallet and want to put it to good use. Most popular crypto exchanges offer staking services, which can prove profitable, especially now as huge investments are being put into new blockchain protocols.

 

b) DeFi Lending -

Similar to traditional lending, crypto users can earn interest by lending their crypto to borrowers. Decentralised applications, or dApps, connect borrowers to lenders based on loan size and crypto collateral. 

 

c) DeFi Trading - 

You can also earn by trading various DeFi-related crypto on popular crypto exchanges. Subscribe OZGinvest chat to learn more about better offerings.

 

d) Interest in Savings Accounts -

Another investment option in DeFi is to create a crypto savings account. You can earn interest by transferring crypto sitting idle in your wallets to a crypto savings account. DeFi savings accounts can offer higher yields compared to banks' savings accounts. For example, some crypto savings account providers offer flexibility to users by not putting conditions on locking their crypto and allowing them to withdraw whenever they wish.

 

e) DeFi Yield Farming -

Crypto-yield farming is a more complex version of staking, and the term comes from how farmers maximize their yield by switching from one crop to another. Similarly, DeFi yield farming is about rotating your crypto investments to different yield farms. This DeFi protocol uses smart contracts to lock crypto tokens and pay interest.

 

4) What are the Risks? 

Failure among start-ups business is common, so new companies using DeFi technology may not succeed, resulting in a loss of funds. 

Additionally, DeFi protocols do not provide insurance like our traditional banks and NBFC companies in case of theft or if you become a victim of a crypto scam.

 

5)  Important Note: 

Crypto products and NFTs are kind of unregulated and can be highly risky. There may be no regulatory recourse for any loss from such transactions. Every investor must do his/her research or seek independent advice if necessary before initiating any transactions in crypto products and NFTs.
