Provide liquidity on DEX's to earn trading fees
Liquidity pools are pools of tokens that provides liquidity to DEXs. Investors (AKA LP’s) act as market makers, using AMM (automated market making) mechanisms on these exchanges. In its most basic form, liquidity pools keeps a 50:50 value ratio between ETH and a second token.
Leading products in this category: Uniswap, Curve, Balancer, SushiSwap, Bancor
Relevant terms: order book, market making, AMM, smart contract risk
Gain token rewards by investing in products with attractive rewards program
DeFi platforms such as Compound and Aave reward their users with governance tokens ($COMP, $LEND). These governance tokens can later be sold on DEXs (Decentralised exchanges). When users deposit tokens as liquidity onto these platforms in order to receive and sell governance tokens, it is called “yield farming”. Yield Farming is one of the hottest and most innovative activities in DeFi.
The easiest way to yield farm is to lend tokens such as ETH, BTC or stable coins to DeFi lending platforms. Yield farming help DeFi platforms attract users and funds and therefor create greater liquidity to facilitate trading.

Trade token pairs on DEX's
DeFi trading is the activity of holding a long/short position on an asset, sometimes with leverage, in order to express a view on a particular coin. In DeFi, the role of the broker is performed by autonomous market makers (AMMs) such as those in liquidity pools, or by matching via an order book. This type of trading can be undertaken on various decentralized exchanges (DEX’s) such as DyDx, MCDEX and Fulcrum.
Leading products in the category: Aave, SuhiSwap, 0x.
Relevant terms: price volatility, liquidation risk, collateral exposure, leverage, BTC bridge
DeFi innovation is exploding
DeFi innovation is happening at a torrid pace. Derivatives and synthetics are proliferating and provide DeFi traders with hedging and other tools for leveraged crypto exposure. Synthetics creation and liquidity provision are fueling the derivatives boom in DeFi.
NFT’s, games and other areas are exploding with interest from retail DeFi users as well. NFT’s are “Non-Fungible-Tokens”, which is a unique digital asset. Games – well, games are self explanatory. These are just a few areas in DeFi that are garnering significant interest.
