DeFiChain is a decentralized blockchain platform specifically dedicated to enable fast, intelligent, and transparent decentralized financial services, accessible by everyone, everywhere.
Running on a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism, it features proven security and immutability by anchoring its most recent Merkle root to the Bitcoin blockchain every few minutes.
The platform also features unparalleled high transaction throughput for all transactions, and reliable decentralized governance, on and off-chain.
DeFiChain is designed for investors in the cryptocurrency market who are looking to make their cryptocurrency work just like any other form of capital, such that they can ensure a return on investment in any market.
In Q4 2020 DeFiChain is launching a Liquidity Pool, a DEX, and wrapping of tokens. This will lead to a new avenue of Yield Farming!
Further features of the blockchain include Decentralized: Pricing Oracles, Transferable Debts and Receivables, Non-Collateralized Debt, Asset Tokenization, and Distribution of Dividends
DeFiChain is 100% a community project. Only with joined efforts can we make it to become one of the most significant and most important blockchains in the world.
The DeFiChain Foundation is located and incorporated in Singapore as a company limited by guarantee (resembling a foundation structure).
The foundation is led by highly experienced blockchain experts Dr. Julian Hosp (chairman), and U-Zyn Chua (CTO), who are early adopters and contributors to the Bitcoin and Dash ecosystems.
There was no ICO or IEO.
DFI tokens were listed on exchanges for sale by the Foundation.
There were airdrops to the community in May 2020.
A further airdrop to BTC holders is planned for Q3 2020.
Staking is available at staking providers like Cake DeFi.
To run a DFI masternode yourself, you will need at least 20,000 DFI and make sure to run the software on a computer or Virtual Private Server (VPS) 24/7 to receive maximum rewards.
Current reward earnings are in excess of 50% APY at this moment.
This is expected to drop each year as more users stake, and also that the block rewards are paid out in a deflationary level (reduced each year)
This is similar to how bitcoin reduces block reward every halving event.
To estimate current rewards under the assumption of more or fewer users staking, feel free to check out the DeFiChain Staking Rewards Calculator.
At present, 20,000 DFI and a 1GB RAM VPS is sufficient for running a masternode.
The minimum requirements were reduced via a voting process in Q4 2020, to assist in decentralizing the project.
DFI holders will be able to cast their votes to pass the new masternode requirement.
Besides the risk of losing your private key, there is negligible risk in running your own masternode. There is no slashing or such.
By staking with a Provider, please consider counterparty-risk.
The protocol itself is currently being audited by renowned security auditors Slowmist.
DeFiChain intends to have its blockchain audited every 2-3 months from Q4 2020 onwards when more functionality will be added onto the blockchain.
