Abstract:Through the appearance of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) protocols, blockchain technology has had a massive impact on the world of finance. Such protocols make use of certain technical mechanisms, specifically collateralization, that are used to control risk and secure value. This study looks at the technical comparison of various collateralization mechanisms used by major DeFi protocols. The research investigates the functionality, effectiveness, and security of such protocols. Preliminary findings suggest that protocols vary significantly in their robustness and efficiency; such differences may have major effects on the durability of DeFi protocols. This study aims to fill a major research gap and give insights to developers, regulators, and users in the growing DeFi field.
