Using DFI on Gate.io
DeFiChain is a unique project, a pioneering blockchain in the quest to offer seamless access to decentralised assets on the world’s largest Proof of Work blockchain Bitcoin.
On DeFiChain, users can enjoy all the benefits of decentralised finance, which includes minting new decentralised tokens, dTokens, and trading within the growing DeFi ecosystem. ( Find more about dTokens here and here.)
Once a user buys DFI on Gate.io, they can transfer them to any compatible wallet, and continue to benefit from its use across the ecosystem.
Although mainly used for transaction fees and governance mechanisms, crypto traders can also leverage the DFI token to mint or lend stock tokens among other functionality such as liquidity pools and staking.
Notably, users can use dTokens to access price exposure of assets such as equities and exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Fractional purchases of dTokens is also available on the DeFiChain DEX.
The DeFiChain project launched its mainnet in May 2020.
