Hello Guys, today I decided to make a beginner friendly short reminder of what they have to know about DeFi, hope u support it 🙂
DeFi is a new and exciting technology, but like any financial system, it comes with risks that users need to be aware of. Some of the risks associated with DeFi include smart contract vulnerabilities, exchange hacks, and market volatility.
So, to protect themselves, DeFi users can take a few simple steps. First, they can use secure wallets to store their funds and never share their private keys with anyone.(Very important!) Second, they can diversify their investments across different DeFi protocols to spread their risk. Third, they can perform due diligence on DeFi protocols before investing, checking their security audits and community reputation.
Finally, users should educate themselves on DeFi and stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the industry. By taking these precautions, users can enjoy the benefits of DeFi while minimizing their risk.
if u have any other beginner advices, will be happy to see them in comments 🙂

This more than ever is something a lot of people ignore to just jump in on trends. Education is really important and often overlooked. Some great insights here. Thanks OP!
Hardware wallets, Ledger, Trezor….
Very soon we should be able to protect our wallets from hacks with the Nexera protocol
The biggest risks are wallet hacks, smart contract hacks and rug pulls. How to protect yourself is by taking security seriously, interact with only vetted protocols and don’t get overexposed.
