Centralized cryptocurrency markets drop transaction rates and attempt to draw the interest of virtually yield farming in all kinds of forms.
This trend was observed a few months ago when centralized cryptocurrency exchanges began to lose deposits and users actively withdrew their funds.
At the same time, users placed the withdrawn funds on decentralized exchange protocols. The so-called token farming has become especially popular.
What is Yield Farming?
Yield farming has undergone a kind of Cambrian boom in recent months, in part, due to the advent of many open financial protocols. In its fundamental meaning, yield farming is a mechanism in which DeFi protocols are supplied by users with liquidity, and a yield/return, typically as the native token bid of the network, is compensated.
It is this property that attracts "farmers" to decentralized protocols that siphon money from centralized exchanges. All this is accompanied by an increase in transaction fees on the Ethereum network. So recently, commissions in the Ethereum network several times set historical highs and paralyzed the network.
How do Centralized Cryptoexchanges React?
By granting its current decentralized Binance Smart Chain (BSC) access to its centralized exchange (CeFi), Binance proceeds to pursue Decentralized Finance (DeFi). In favour of DeFi ventures on BSC, the multinational cryptocurrency trading giant put up $100 million.
Binance was also followed by a statement from the OKEx cryptocurrency exchange that they are also launching DeFi farming. Among the advantages on the exchange, they call the absence of commission and the high speed of the process.

However, this can't go on forever. Some analysts believe that the DeFi period will soon end, and even faster than the ICO boom in 2017.
