NFTs and DeFi are starting to work together. More and more Dapps in the DeFi space have started to use NFTs in their products. For example, RWA tokenizes real-world assets.
These tokens are NFTs. But we see more use cases for NFTs in the DeFi space. So, that’s why we are taking a closer look at NFT-Fi.

What Is NFT-Fi?
NFT-Fi stands for NFT Finance or Financialization. In other words, you use NFTs to increase markets, financial institutions, etc., in size and influence. Besides this, DeFi offers another interesting feature. It can explore areas that TradFi doesn’t cover. That, right there, is where it becomes fascinating.
So, rather than replacing TradFi, DeFi can also complement it. Where TradFi is mostly centralized, DeFi offers a decentralized alternative. Throw NFTs into this equation, and we have NFT-Fi. As a result, instead of selling your NFTs, you can now, for example:
- Borrow or lend them.
- Fractionalize your NFTs.
- Rent them out.
Three key benefits of NFT-Fi are:
- Increased liquidity – with new use cases for NFTs, you increase their liquidity.
- Expanded financial utility – you can create more sophisticated markets around NFTs.
- Better risk mitigation. – you can create a wider exposure to entire markets, instead of only one segment.
So, let’s take a closer look at how we can use NFT-Fi tools.
