Decentralized technology also referred to as DeFi was still progressing in last year but had to face major setbacks due to the crypto market crash of late 2018. However, as the crypto market bounces back, the #DeFi movement is back on track as well.

The project is currently developing a universal integration protocol in which different companies may work as smart markets, and the suppliers are linked to the demand in an efficient and supervised manner.
However, Ethereum still hosts the highest number of DeFi projects in quantity with over one hundred (100) new projects recorded recently. Some better projects existing on other networks help in maintaining the balance here. Defi network can only flourish if its diversity is protected.
