Blockchain technology is a distributed ledger that allows transactions to settle without centralized authority. It has since been used to allow &ldquot;permission-less&rdquot; finance for regions without reliable financial infrastructure or unstable geopolitical situations.
Decentralized finance (DeFi) refers to financial products built on blockchain. Early DeFi creators use distributed organizations to avoid regulation from governments. But to reach mainstream adoption, compliance with governing bodies is required.
