Welcome defiers!

Like money? Like tech? Decentralized finance is where those two worlds meet, face to face, with no intermediaries.

I’m Camila Russo, a financial journalist writing a book on Ethereum with Harper Collins. I was previously at Bloomberg News in New York, Madrid and Buenos Aires writing about markets. I’ve extensively covered crypto and finance, and now I’m diving into DeFi, the intersection of the two.

Why subscribe?

In this newsletter I curate the day’s latest DeFi news, explain why they matter and give you my take –sometimes I’ll even have my own scoops. You’ll also get exclusive interviews with the space’s most interesting characters, and the occasional guest post where DeFi luminaries take over. To make sure you never miss anything, I even do a weekly recap.

The Defiant will be entirely free for the next couple of months. When the paid period starts, only part of the content will stay free. Subscribers will get full access for just $10/month or $100/year. If you subscribe before the paid period starts you’ll get the same access for $8/month or $80/year, for the first year.

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.
