Is DeFi Changing the Face of Global Finance?


With the high level of distrust in the traditional global banking system, there is a need for an immediate change. Community-powered global banking appears to be the best solution for the problem at hand. Here, people can be in charge of their financial activities without relying on corporate entities and third parties.

The advent of blockchain technology and decentralized finance (DeFi) is revolutionizing the banking and financial industry. By harnessing the power of DeFi technology, organizations can offer an all-inclusive financial product that will be available worldwide. This is astounding progress in cross-border financial services.

The market value of the decentralized finance (DeFi) market was $13 billion as of December 2020. In March 2021, the DeFi market value had risen to an astronomical value of $93 billion. This is evidence that the global population is gradually leaning towards democratizing finance and making it accessible to everyone. The current global lending market is expected to hit $9.77 trillion by the year 2025 at a CAGR of 6%. With the current growth in the global lending market, more people need to access these financial products. However, several problems have bedeviled the current traditional global financial system, thus cutting off many people worldwide.

In the current global banking system, very few people have access to readily available lending, borrowing, and investing financial products. With a community-powered global banking system in place, pooled lending, borrowing, and investing products will be accessible to everyone worldwide. The world needs an inclusive and efficient global DeFi alternative to our traditional financial products. Some of the glaring challenges facing traditional banking include the following:

  • Poorly serviced global market
  • The high propensity of human error and fraud
  • Excessive fees and high inefficiencies, etc
