What is DeFi

DeFi, DEX, Decentralised Financing; are the markets bullish and how can you get in on Uniswap tips


Building a Portfolio

DeFi takes the fact that passive income from the safety of your home has long been considered a myth. Money doesn’t grow on trees and nobody will give it to you for free. The same applies to cryptocurrency and blockchain. While these concepts revolutionize the way we perceive financing, it takes hours of research, hard work, constant monitoring and keeping your eyes on all media and social channels in order to properly navigate through gains and losses, while maintaining impeccable risk management.

Decentralised Financing Explained

DeFi is fulfilling the promise of Blockchain for Decentralised Financing. It is what crypto iusers can unite behind, since DeFi At the moment, decentralised exchanges are all based on the ETH (Etherium) blockchain. The assets which are native to the ETH blockchain are called Tokens. Decentralised exchanges, such as Uniswap, allow you to easily buy and sell tokens, which can yield daily gains, if selected and managed properly. 

Since we at CryptoTT value the community above alI – teaching you everything Blockchain, that you would ever need in order to properly manage and oversee your assets. We want to share a special opportunity with you. You might have heard the buzz about decentralised financing and decentralised changes, also known as DeFi and DEX

DeFi Uniswap Explained

The most popular decentralised exchange at the moment is Uniswap. Uniswap is an exchange protocol that allows users to trustlessly swap ERC20 tokens. Instead of using the traditional order book model, Uniswap pools tokens into smart contracts and users trade against these liquidity pools. Anyone can swap tokens, add tokens to a pool to earn fees, or list a token on Uniswap.

Uniswap is unique in that it doesn’t use an order book to derive the price of an asset. In a centralized exchange the price listed on the exchange is determined by where the highest price someone is willing to pay and the lowest price someone is willing to sell meet. Uniswap uses the Exchange contracts to pool both Ether and an ERC20. When trading Ether for a token, Ether is sent to the contract’s pool and the token is given back to you. As a user, you don’t need to wait for a counterparty in order to exchange or worry about specifying a price. 

The amount that is returned from swapping is based on an automated market maker formula. No matter the size of a swap, the user is guaranteed to have their trade executed.

Liquidity 

When an Exchange contract is first created for a token, both the token and Ether pools are empty. The first user that deposits into the contract is the one that determines the ratio between the token and Ether. If they deposit a ratio that is different from what the current market rate is, then an arbitrage opportunity is available. 

If you want to become a liquidity provider by adding to an established pool, they should add a proportional amount of token and Ether to the pool. If you don’t, the liquidity you added is at risk of being arbitraged as well.

In addition, larger liquidity pools are beneficial to users because they allow for larger swaps to happen without skewing the token to ETH ratio too far. Uniswap incentives users to add liquidity to pools by rewarding providers with fees that are collected by the protocol. A 0.3% fee is taken for swapping between Ether and a token and roughly a 0.6% is token to token swaps.

Special ERC20 tokens known as liquidity tokens are minted to the provider’s address in proportion to how much liquidity they have contributed. 

The tokens are burned when the user wants to receive the liquidity they contributed plus the fees that we accumulated while their liquidity was locked.
