IN YOUR OWN WORDS, EXPLAIN DeFi PRODUCTS AND HOW IT IS SHAPING THE PRESENT-DAY FINANCE.

In the simplest English, DeFi means Decentralised Finance. So, when we talk about Decentralization it simply points to a system that allows users across globe to participate in the Blockchain network Investing their funds in a system where they are allowed access and control without an intermediary. Now unlike what we have in a Centralised system where there are entities and top executives who solely take up the responsibility of controlling the system as well as administer user's transactions in their stead. While we run down, understand that the aim of cryptocurrency is to defeat Centralization.

Now, when we talk about DeFi products, we are simply referring to products, tools and applications in the field of finance that advances the technology world by creating a medium of exchange or offering service to users across the globe without necessarily needing a third party to Grace such transaction. Recently, the world has so much advanced technologically that various opportunities can be extracted from all spheres.

DeFi products was established to zero the trust element needed in the centralised technology where we need to have our finances under the custody of third party Who we don't even know just like what we have in CEX and other investment platform. Now Dencentralised finances made possible the creation of products and services while maintaining a reasonable level of decentralization in the system where users have little or no need of a third party and still having a deep sense of transparency and security which tends to lure greater number of users in becoming part of the ecosystem.

we have lots of DeFi projects scattered on the internet like uniswap that facilitates financial decentralization from whence users can lend finances, borrow finances and even earn reasonable interest and make purchases without a central authority and yet have a secured and safe transaction. In all, DeFi products are decentralized projects or platforms that renders financial services without a central authority administering or authorizing such transaction or service. And notably, the aim of building DeFi products is to enhance privacy in user's financial involvement as well as facilitate speed in the financial industry which would have been hindered by the existence of third parties and their protocols thereof.

The speed and height of security which DeFi products uses to offer its services can be attributed to smart contract. By virtue of it, transactions are quickly executed without any form of delay or error. Another exciting feature of DeFi is that users transactions are transparent and can be accessed by users across the globe and in the case of any erroneous transaction, the history of such transaction is being recorded and can be accessed over time.

[1b] EXPLAIN THE BENEFITS OF DeFi PRODUCTS TO CRYPTO USERS.

For this task there's need for me to reiterate some of the points i noted earlier in the previous number. Recall that I earlier wrote about the aim of cryptocurrency being to defeat centralization. Now we are going to outline the benefits of decentralized finance products to cryptocurrency user which include the following:

Transparency

All most every DeFi product i know have this similar feature of transparency. By this i mean to say that every transaction carried out in DeFi is recorded and can be accessed by users at every point in time.
Now the implication of this is that the crypto users who might have carried out one or two transactions on the blockchain can still fall back to those recorded transactions anytime any day in case of an error to rectify his transaction in the system.

0% Trust Element

In a Centralised system where the are top executives who administers users transactions in the system, users pass the hurdles of having to keep their assets under the custody of an entity whom they know nothing about but this is not so in a DeFi as users run their financial services having no need to trust any entity for the safety of their funds.
DeFi products are of great benefit to the cryptocurrency users on this note in that he has no need to trust any external entity relying on their services instead he renders such service all by himself.

Highly secured

The influx of new users in DeFi is as a result of the height of security it offers to users in the finance industry. This is made possible courtesy of cryptography which allows only authorized users access to the funds.
This is so important to the crypto user as he don't need to battle with any fear of loosing the funds in his account to hackers as long as his private keys are well secured.

Cost Effective

DeFi has its own way of boycotting so many rigorous processes as seen in a Centralised system which tends to reduce to costs of transaction in DeFi.
So, as much as users enjoy speed and security of funds and transaction, it also cost him less in a Decentralised Blockchain.

No third party

Far from what is seen in a Centralised system, crypto users need not be under the administration of entities who controls, administers or need authorization to confirm user's transactions instead, DeFi allows its users to control all their activities and since they have their private keys and wallet in their custody, they can control their transactions from anywhere around the world without authorization from intermediaries.

Multiple Services

There are countless products and services which can be implemented with DeFi such as DEX, staking, farming etc. With this, the crypto user is not limited to one service. So he can benefit from as many products and services as he wishes.

Accessibility and user-friendly

The Decentralised Blockchain allowing users around the world to participate wholesomely to the workings of the system points to its Accessibility and the system is designed in such a way that new crypto users can easily master it while offering their products and services.
