Our Mission

Here at DeFi Rate, we’re focused on providing strong resources to explain the value of decentralized financial applications in a digestible manner.

As a group of crypto enthusiasts, we aim to demystify DeFi in an attempt to teach non-technical users how to access the endless opportunities we write about each day.

DeFi Rate has established partnerships with certain projects featured on our site. These partners compensate us for bringing them traffic which is – in our eyes – a far superior alternative to running ads. This may influence who we write about. Please note that all opinions are our own and that we are very strict about who we establish partnerships with.
