If you prefer a video version, CEO Julian Hops also made a detailed video:
1. Smart Contract Risk
There is of course always the risk that there is some bug in the code of the Smart Contract that can be exploited. With DeFiChain, this risk is generally considered low (and much lower than with Ethereum), since the blockchain is non-turing-complete and hence there are much fewer potential errors.
2. Project Risk
Are there any backdoors? Is the project independently audited? Is it open source? In general, everything is fine for most large projects, because for example Uniswap and also DeFiChain are open source, everyone can check and verify the code themselves and the projects also regularly contract external security audits.
3. Impermanent Loss
The third and most complicated risk is that of an impermanent loss. This is explained in detail in the next part of this DEX explanation series. In short, the risk is that the pool shifts in such a way and the prices of BTC and DFI, for example, also develop in such a way that if you were to withdraw your liquidity from the pool now, you would make a loss. Because of the arbitrage already mentioned, however, this always balances out in the long term and this risk is only a temporary, short-term one.
