Understanding DeFi — dApps and DAOs

Our newest team member Plum formally introduced himself yesterday and began his new series Understanding DeFi. As we welcome him into the Saffron family, make sure to say hi on Telegram and check out his article above! Plum will be taking a deeper dive into DeFi, how it’s shaking up the financial ecosystem, and showcasing notable projects in the sector. This series isn’t just limited to Saffron but rather the industry as a whole, so he’ll be able to cover a wide spectrum of topics. We hope you guys enjoy the series and please don’t hesitate to reach out to Plum with any questions or topics you want to read about — you can contact him here.

Saffron Finance Interview on

Psykeeper was featured in an interview with last week, available to watch it at the link above. There’s a lot of great information to be gleamed from the discussion but odds are if you’re already on board the Saffron train you’re likely well aware of the importance of a protocol like ours. But even Saffron veterans will be able to get something out of this as there are a few hints of things to come (!). It’s a great listen and we highly recommend users who are still on the fence about DeFi insurance and risk adjustment in crypto to give a listen.

Psykeeper Appears on Smart Economy Podcast

In addition to the interview, Psykeeper makes an appearance on the latest episode of the Smart Economy Podcast in Part 3 of their DeFi series. This episode is phenomenal and delves into Psykeeper’s journey into decentralized finance, the benefits (and downsides) of being anonymous, building in bear markets, and more!
