One of our goals at CryptoLocally is to continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible in the crypto/blockchain space. We also strive to be at the forefront of innovation in decentralized finance. To achieve these goals, we developed a new DeFi feature: “Finance Walletallowing users on our platform to passively earn staking rewards on their cryptocurrencies!

Why are we offering this capability on our decentralized trading platform?

Since our company was founded, the CryptoLocally team has worked hard to expand the selection of coins available for trading. However, we want to be more than a leading decentralized P2P trading platform. We also want to revolutionize the finance industry by advancing new technologies that can help anyone maximize their earning potential.

There is no better way to do that than to advance into decentralized finance. It opens doors to a globally interconnected alternative to every financial service you use today — savings, loans, trading, insurance, and more. While the majority of decentralized services present today are difficult to access, we are confident that our solution is uniquely simple and intuitive.

We believe that expanding our product offerings to include decentralized finance capabilities will play a significant role in the evolution of the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry.

What is Decentralized Finance (DeFi)?

To understand the significance of our new feature, it is important to have a basic grasp on decentralized finance.
Decentralized finance, commonly referred to as DeFi, is the unification of the services provided by traditional banks and decentralized technologies like blockchain.

The DeFi community is working to develop decentralized alternatives to all of the financial services that are traditionally offered by banks and other financial institutions. DeFi is groundbreaking because it expands the reach of money and the availability of financial services. After all, you only need an internet connection to participate in the DeFi revolution. This is how DeFi will make financial services available to millions of people who unfortunately do not have access to traditional banking.
