Abstract

This IDC Perspective provides insight into the inner workings of decentralized finance (DeFi) by exploring its evolution to its current form, market incentives, and structure. The study also highlights the key potentials of DeFi, as well as its associated risks. Through market observations and recent trends, IDC outlines the phases of DeFi adoption in underpinning economic activity, growth areas for financial services and technology vendors, and key action items to ensure innovations in DeFi are shaped to the right direction.

"With the rise of interest and adoption in the DeFi ecosystem, its risks remain a top priority to be addressed by regulators, developers, and solutions providers alike," says Adam Kamarul, market analyst, IDC Financial Insights. "Ultimately, the speed and diversity of innovations we are seeing across DeFi platforms point toward a shared aspiration for a financial ecosystem that is trust-minimized, transparent, and accessible."
