Thursday, October 29, 2020, 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM EDT
Decentralized Finance (“DeFi”) has taken the digital asset industry by storm. From hypergrowth projects like Uniswap, Compound, and Balancer, to offbeat offshoots like Sushi and Yam, the DeFi movement is transforming the global financial system for its believers. And there are a lot of believers. DeFi projects have accumulated over $11 billion worth of value locked in these decentralized, anonymized, and unregulated projects – most of which has been invested in the past few months. But DeFi also has its detractors: people who see the current phase of DeFi as speculative lending schemes with little long-term impact on the global financial system. This panel of DeFi experts will explain what DeFi means to them, how to access the world of DeFi projects, and how DeFi may grow in both monetary value and overall benefit to the world.
