What is Defi?
Decentralized finance (DeFi) works on a distributed ledger that works on a core principle of removing the mediator to build a decentralized ecosystem where people do not rely on a third part and can carry on with the transaction without paying service charges to the third party. DeFi ensures transparency as all transactions are recorded on public leader that is immutable.
DeFi comes with a handfull of advantages of ensuring high level security due to the the distributed ledger technology that maintains the transparency, the listed advantages fueled the deviation towards DeFi.

In centralised finance (CeFi) the third party completely takes away the tranparency, the conventional trading activities such as marginal trading, lending and borrowing, payments derivatives trading are easily performed with CeFi and DeFi as well. CeFi requires KYC to fully operating all the services and on the other hand DeFi does not requires KYC to access the services instead it requires a unique identification number simply known as key.
