DeFi is an ecosystem to facilitate decentralization, transparency and providing complete control over their digital assets. Here, it eliminates third-party/middlemen over the user's digital assets.

Blockchain supports decentralization, it is a concept of eliminating the central control, the parties involved in the transaction can view the details. The buyers and sellers can interact directly, eliminating third-party involvement over their digital assets.

DeFi functions with the help of Smartcontract. The buyer's and seller's transactions are executed with the help of smart contracts. The Smart contract is self-executing program codes. They are precisely defined among the parties publicly. It helps to remove the third-party/ middleman to eradicate alteration of the enclosed statement.

Let's see how DeFi Yield Farming operates,

DeFi yield Farming allows the users to invest their digital assets in liquidity pools and get the interest/ return as a reward from the yield farming.

The Liquidity provider will liquidate their digital asset with the help of smartcontract earn interest as rewards, where Token is of various types like utility tokens, and Governance Token. The user has complete control over the digital asset. It Works like banks but without central control

Users will be rewarded with governance tokens so that they take part in voting on the DeFi platforms. Utility tokens where they can be swapped with other tokens over the platform.

Understanding liquidity pools, liquidity providers, and automated market maker model

Yield farming operates with a liquidity provider and a liquidity pool operates with a smart contract that establishes a DeFi. A liquidity provider is an investor who locks funds into a smart contract. The liquidity pool is a smart contract filled with cryptos where the user can lend cryptos from the liquidity pool and pays interest and the liquidity provider gets the interest as a return. Yield farming operates based on the automated market maker (AMM) model.

Automatic Market Maker excretes the regular order book, which has all “buy” and “sell” orders on exchanges. On crypto exchange asset value is fixed whereas in DeFi AMM facilitates liquidity pools with the smartcontract

The AMM model relay on the user, who lock their assets over the liquidity pools with the help of smart contracts. DeFi users pay trading fees to the marketplace; the marketplace shares the fees with LiquidtyProviders based on their share of the pool’s liquidity.
