What is DFI token and DeFiChain?
DeFi chain is a community project. There was/is no Initial Coin Offering, only free airdrops.
YouTube video from July 2020 explaining the DeFiChain DFI Token in detail:
Check out the latest price of DFI token on Coingecko. On 25 July 2021, A DFI token is trading at around US$2.10.
The current circulating supply (with staking and liquidity mining) is available at DeFiChain Explorer.
What can I do with the DFI tokens I earn? How can I convert my DFI to BTC, other Crypto or Fiat?
Since Cake DeFi is not an exchange, they do not offer the conversion from DFI to BTC or other cryptocurrencies or fiat on Cake DeFi.
If you wish to convert/exchange your DFI, you have to withdraw your DFI to an exchange that lists DFI.
A full list of exchanges with supporting trading pairs of DFI can be seen here.
Personally, I use KuCoin to withdraw DFI.
As of 6 Aug 2021, Cake DeFi charges a fixed withdrawal fee for DeFiChain at 0.2 DFI.
Please note that Cake DeFi constantly adjusts fees in accordance with current market conditions, and you can view the withdrawal fee in your dashboard before making a withdrawal request.
Do note that some of the withdrawal fees are pretty pricey.
My experience with Cake DeFi
Signing up is relatively easy but I find the “Know Your Customer” (KYC) process rather tedious. I had to:
- scan the front and back of my ID
- upload a phone bill
- take a selfie with my ID, and a piece of paper with my name, the word “Cake” and the current date written on it.
The last requirement to take a selfie put me off from completing the KYC process until Cake DeFi launched a campaign which doubled the referral bonus.
The verification process was rather quick though. I uploaded everything on a Saturday afternoon and got verified within the hour.
How to deposit tokens into Cake DeFi to qualify for referral sign up bonus?
You can easily find your address as follows:
- Go to your Cake Wallet (Balances) from your profile menu.
- Click “Deposit” for the coin you wish to deposit. Copy the deposit address provided.
- From your external wallet/exchange/etc, send your coins to your Cake deposit address.
I opted to deposit the DASH token into Cake DeFi from a crypto exchange I use.
For DASH token, you can consider crypto exchanges like:
I chose the DASH token to transfer into Cake DeFi because of it’s low withdrawal fees and $0 deposit fees on Cake DeFi.
If you choose some other token, double check if the withdrawal fees from the crypto exchange and the deposit fees charged by Cake DeFi are reasonable.
The transfer took about 20 minutes to complete and appear in my Cake DeFi balances.
Receiving the referral bonus immediately after depositing
The moment the transfer was confirmed by Cake DeFi, I also received a separate email about being awarded the referral sign up bonus:
Hi [my name],
You just received your sign-up bonus! The bonus of 23.92344497 DFI is frozen for the next 180 days and is already working for you. Currently you get paid 103% APY.
The Cake Team
On 25 July 2021, I staked the DASH tokens I transferred in at APY 5.5% on the Cake DeFi platform.
