My DeFi adventure

How dumb a timing can that be right? Especially when I just blogged about crypto cycle and DCA .  Nevertheless, I think it's a good learning experience and I didn't regret for not sitting on my hands. Let me share some quick takeaways that I have from dabbling in this very intriguing space. (Due to the high gas cost when I started, I migrated most of my funds to Polygon which is a Layer 2 solution to bypass the high gas cost on the Ethereum mainnet.) SushiSwap liquidity mining

The Awakening 2

I wrote at the end of my post The Awakening that I will post Awakening 2 when the crypto market crashes. Regretfully, I have to put up this post sooner than the blink of an eye (it's been less than 3 weeks?!).  I hope my Awakening post didn't cause anyone to chase the ATH. (Let me dig out and flash my blog disclaimer as a shield.)

Making sense of Defi concepts - Liquidation

In this post, I will talk briefly about the main risk of participating in  lending and borrowing Defi protocols  eg. Makerdao, Aave - which is  liquidation  and what can lead to it.

Different spaces but same logics

Defi stands for Decentralized finance. Tradfi stands for Traditional finance. If you are new to cryptocurrency, I would encourage you to read a little more in-depth on Blockchain platforms  here before you get started. Here are my five investment logics:

Making sense of Defi concepts - Yield farming

Making sense of AMM Instead of reading a lengthy write up by me on what is Yield Farming, I think the video by Finematics below would give a much clearer picture. Finematics (Youtube channel) has created many brilliant introductory and explanatory videos on various aspect of cryptocurrency and I would recommend a follow. My notes Liquidity mining - the process of distribution of tokens to users of the protocol. It's additional incentive for yield farmers (these tokens can be staked for additional reward). Leverage - Farmers can deposit their coins as collateral to one of the lending protocols to borrow other coins, they can repeat this procedures. Risks - liquidation risk (from leveraging), smart contract risk, defi specific risks. Crop rotation can help farmers keep up with changes in yields.
