DeFi Holdings is a company focused on investing, incubating and managing trading technologies associated with the fast-growing decentralized finance market. Decentralized finance could be considered the next wave of financial innovation on the blockchain. It refers to digital assets, financial smart contracts, protocols and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum and other blockchains. In simpler terms, it is financial software built on the blockchain. Decentralized finance's core selling point is the removal of intermediaries in transactions which in traditional finance provide the trust layer (banks and brokers) in a transaction between two parties. With decentralized finance, users can access the network directly, so there is no need for intermediaries.
The goal of the investment is to give the company's shareholders exposure to the emerging decentralized finance industry. DeFi Holdings has a mandate to secure equity holdings of leading companies, creating new companies in the space, and operating a trading desk for underlying exposure to crypto currencies.
The decentralized finance market represents a paradigm shift in traditional financial derivatives and has created new financial products around staking, yielding and decentralization of permission-less financial infrastructure associated with digital assets.
