Blockchains as money
Before 2017, blockchains game-changing application were crypto currencies, forms of money which were free of sovereign and political economic interests, censorship resistant, and unencumbered with inflation.

The market is still young but in only over 24 months, capital in DeFi smart contracts has grown from $0 to about $700 million.
What’s Coming Next
While a robust DeFi ecosystem is forming, the biggest issue is that most platforms only cater to Ethereum.
Anytime soon, an application shall unite the fragmented crypto currency markets, unlocking billions of potential.
