Decentralized Finance As a New Financial Sector 做為一個新金融領域的「去中心化金融」

Nowadays, decentralized finance (DeFi) is becoming one of the leading narratives for promising blockchain use-cases. It is not surprising as more than 85% of all cryptocurrencies market cap is already allocated to coins and tokens representing an industry of decentralized finance.


The DeFi sector will see the future of financial services in a digital light, the same as traditional finance through financial technologies (FinTech). Both financial sectors aim to reinvent financial services as automated software products with programmed business logic.


The trust source of DeFi is public blockchains while the trust source of traditional finance is public governance frameworks composed of laws, licensed financial institutions and financial authorities.


The DeFi sector is a more open system with almost no entry barriers as everybody who has programming skills can build financial services on top of public blockchains. In contrast, the tradition financial sector has massive entry barriers.
