Check out my article for crypto beginners which discusses Defi plus more “Crypto For Starters“.
This is a good introduction book to the world of Defi. It was an easy read and introdcues the reader to basic concepts like what is centralized versus decentralized finance and Ethereum wallets.
But the book also dives into stablecoins, lending and borrowing, decentralized exchanges (DEXs), derivatives, crypto fund management, crypto lotteries, payments, decentralized insurance, and more.
They also give a ton of examples in each section.
