Decentralised Finance (DeFi) is a blockchain-based form of finance that does not rely on central financial intermediaries such as brokerages, exchanges, or banks to offer traditional instruments. Instead it relies on smart contracts on blockchain platforms.
Now a $100bn sector, DeFi is likely to have a significant impact on how banks operate in the future with the potential to disrupt the way our current financial systems are structured.
With the FCA’s recent move to ban Binance, the biggest bitcoin and altcoin crypto exchange in the world by volume, regulation of these markets has become an increasingly hot topic.
Join us on the 22nd July for our second conversation around blockchain technologies with our deep dive into DeFi.
