in #coingecko6 days ago

It is with great excitement that we announce the release of a new section on CoinGecko called CoinGecko Earn and the publication of the world-first Decentralized Finance (DeFi) book titled How to DeFi.

CoinGecko Earn

As we have all been aware, the DeFi ecosystem has grown a lot in the past couple of years. The DeFi sector is very interesting and full of opportunities and we at CoinGecko want to help you unlock and realize these opportunities by providing actionable insights to you.

CoinGecko Earn, as the name suggests, will provide you with an overview on the returns on various cryptocurrency lending/staking platforms. Here are some screenshots of how CoinGecko Earn look:

How to DeFi Book


Together with the launch of CoinGecko Earn, we are also releasing “How to DeFi”, the first-ever book published covering the DeFi ecosystem. Packed with concise and comprehensive step-by-step guides on getting started with the various DeFi applications, this book will both serve as a great introductory material to DeFi newcomers, as well as reference material for the seasoned veterans.

This book is the culmination of hours of research, as well as countless frenzied writing sessions. There's over 200 pages and over 26,000 words worth of DeFi content in here. This book is priced at $14.99, but we really want to thank all of our lovely supporters (yes, you!) for the support shown to us. Thus, we will be making this book available for free digital downloads during the first month of publication till 30 April 2020.

Do read this book and let us know what you think of it!


I think that @coingecko is the most genuine and helpful resource out there. Sure, the ebook is not free for now, nor should it be. 200 pages of content means a lot of hard work, and offering someone the key to how to invest in DeFi, especially right now when the space is in its infancy I think $15 is worth it.

Besides that, I mentioned the free API that they provide, the widgets, the coin info and everything else. Providing so much value. And sure, there's referral links here and there, but those are completely voluntary, I don't think many people actually use them.

And sure, being a part of the HIVE community is a good way to reach more people and provide more services, but the team behind @coingecko also has a stake in here, they are active, they help the community, vote content, etc.

Long story short, thanks for your involvement and all I can say is that I really appreciate it and I'm proud that you guys are part of the HIVE community!

You are doing an amazing job coingecko!


Great job coingecko.

Congratulations on your new book! This is a pretty cool and exciting time. Let's see where this goes. ☀️❤🐝

I know that you are focusing on Ethereum based DeFi but it would be nice to explore the first blockchain to introduce decentralized exchanges, pegged assets, user issued assets (UIA), etc...with the most scalable consensus algorithm (DPOS). I am talking about Bitshares.

It would also be interesting to see why that first attempt at DeFi (years before ETH based dApps) did not have the success it could have had.
