Recently, new Telegram chats around the world have been opened dedicated to DeFi, i.e. decentralised finance. In reality, they are not groups targeting specific locations or countries, but specific languages.
In English, for example, there is DeFi, which already has 4,139 members from all over the world and is very active.
Among those in other languages, the one in French and the one in Italian stand out in terms of the number of subscribers, followed by the Spanish and Korean ones.
The French one is called DeFi France and currently has 177 members. Although it has far fewer members than the group in English, it is also active. Its description indicates that it is a group discussing the next revolution in the financial sector, as a result of decentralisation, peer-to-peer and transparency.
The third is DeFi Italy, with 158 members. This is a group that has been open very recently, and therefore not yet as active as the two previous ones. It is proposed as the centre of reference for DeFi in Italy. It also has a Twitter channel and an Ethereum Name System (ENS), defi-italy.eth.
The fourth is in Spanish, DeFi_Español, with 139 subscribers while the fifth is DeFi Russia with 136 members, a group in Russian, but with some contributions in English.
The sixth is DeFi Korea with 132 members. In reality, this is not a group in which only Korean is spoken, there are several conversations in English.
Worth mentioning are also, the Southeast Asian group, Defi SG with 62 members, and the Defi Africa group with 51 members.
Since these are international groups, although located in specific areas of the world, they are actually English-language groups.
In addition to these there are also other groups dedicated to decentralised finance, such as DeFi Drivers, with 93 members, and DeFi Berlin, with 39 members.
From the numbers, it is clear that this is a still-growing sector and that it has just begun to spread. In fact, many of these Telegram chats are recent and have not yet managed to collect a large number of subscribers, but the phenomenon of DeFi is rapidly expanding and may not take long to reach much higher figures.
