In our book “Fit for DeFi” you will learn everything you need to know about Decentralized Finance to be prepared for the DeFi future!
In the DeFi book, we start with a broad overview of the DeFi space, examining what exactly DeFi is and isn’t. Then we look at the history of DeFi and give an overview of the different DeFi categories that are currently bustling on the different blockchains. Also, in our DeFi book we highlight the key differences between DeFi and TradFi (Traditional Finance) and provide an in-depth understanding of the opportunities and risks of decentralized finance.
We then move on to the core of the DeFi book: We deal in detail with the most important mechanisms and core principles that underlie all DeFi protocols. For example, we examine the different building blocks of DeFi applications and look at how they interact to create entirely new financial services. Or we delve in detail into various incentive structures employed by the most successful DeFi protocols.
Once we have that basic understanding, we move on to the hands-on portion of the book, where we look at three specific DeFi protocols: Uniswap (a decentralized exchange), Aave (a decentralized credit and lending solution), and Unslashed Finance (a decentralized insurance protocol). In all three deep dives, we not only examine in detail how the different protocols work, but I also demonstrate with many screenshots how you can best use these applications in practice. Of course, you will learn many practical tips and tricks along the way which you can directly try out yourself on-chain. And don’t worry if you don’t have a DeFi wallet yet: In the book “Fit for DeFi” I show you step by step how to set up your own DeFi wallet to successfully start your DeFi journey.
