Three years later and DeFi is big business. A user with a crypto wallet can trade digital assets, get loans, or take out insurance, among many other things. Some $90 billion of collateral is locked up in these services, and more than 10 million people have downloaded MetaMask, one of the most popular digital wallets used to open up access to these networks.

At the same time "DeFiChain" keeps its own consensus mechanism and function set, allowing for all those characteristics that Bitcoin does not inherently have.
