Since the last bull run in 2017, crypto trading has evolved substantially and the rise of non-custodial trading (decentralized exchanges & DeFi) is a clear trend that is here to stay. Shining a light on this trend, how traders are managing was the core driver behind this survey: the DeFi Trader Survey.

That’s why we ran this survey together with other DeFi teams such as Argent, Kleros, Kyber Network, Maker, Ren, Synthetix, and Uniswap. As we are all committed…
