Token Driven Revolution

Understanding the foundations of Decentralized Finance (DeFi)

Join FinTechNZ, Blockchain and IBM as we dive deeper into constructs that govern the crypto economics models and token economy. The emergence of Asset tokenization has led to massive disintermediation and changes to the business models of many industries. 

With finance as an exemplar, we will explore how Decentralized Finance or DeFi, is challenging every aspect of value movement.  DeFi favors network effects, the true innovation is created by uniquely combining the applications. 

DeFi has become a trending topic in the blockchain community. In contrast to the decentralization of money through Bitcoin and stablecoin, DeFi aims for a broader approach of generally decentralizing the traditional financial industry. The core of the initiative is to open traditional financial services to everyone, in providing a permissionless financial service ecosystem based on blockchain infrastructure. 

DeFi is often referred to as Lego blocks of financial services, it is therefore vital to understand and craft an investment thesis that resonates with not only the co-development of the financial innovation and instruments, but also the technology infrastructure that will support these innovative structures and models.

An essential session for all FinTech and Blockchain professionals combining the latest in finance, blockchain and technology developments.
