The term “DeFi” is short for decentralized finance and refers to a movement that aims to recreate traditional financial systems using blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies. In the world of DeFi, visionaries are individuals who play a significant role in shaping and developing this decentralized financial environment. These visionaries often contribute to the development of decentralized applications (DApps), smart contracts and blockchain protocols that enable various financial services without the need for traditional intermediaries.
While we do not have real-time information and cannot at this time provide specific individuals who could be considered “Heroes of Finance” in the DeFi space, we can mention some influential figures from my last knowledge update in January 2022.
