Trading gets complicated with yield farming, a phenomenon unique to DeFi. Most protocols will give a token in exchange for deposits made to liquidity pools as what can be thought of as a "receipt token." These tokens, in turn, may have a market value and a corresponding liquidity pool they can be invested into. Users can invest these "receipt tokens," governance tokens, or currencies into other liquidity pools and earn interest on top of interest. Things can get complicated very quickly. While smart investors can make a lot of money doing this, it can be tricky to understand and manage risk, and you can lose money very quickly if you don't know what you're doing.
