Manuel Rensink, Strategy Director, Securrency
We’re in the midst of the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) revolution. DeFi is smart contract implementation of financial processes like
lending, collateralization, asset management, etc,. From the first week of August 2020, the total value locked in DeFi jumped by a
staggering 85%, from $4.2bn on August 3rd to $7.8bn on August 30th, which has created quite a market buzz. This enthusiasm is
well-founded: blockchain technology has proven that it can streamline and even transform the world of finance in exciting ways, and
there have certainly been some big winners in this space. But, as dynamic as this community may be, it remains unregulated and
immature, and that means that there are also some really big losers, with six documented smart-contract hacks having taken place
in the first 6 months of 2020, for example.
Working closely with regulators from the US to Singapore and Australia to Kenya, Securrency understands the need for automated
compliance processes among legacy financial services providers to seamlessly facilitate entrance into the market. Through its
distributed identity, compliance framework, and state-of-the-art infrastructure, Securrency is providing transparency to strengthen
investor confidence and offer regulators increased oversight of market activity. Enhancing capital formation and stimulating global
liquidity, Securrency is opening up a world of possibility.
In this session, we will discover;
What is DeFi and what are its innovations?
What are the main DeFi models and where do their markets lie?
Where is DeFi going and how big can it get?
How can we limit DeFi’s use for nefarious activities and protect users/ investors from hacks, scams and technology risk?
Is there an opportunity for corporations and financial institutions to get involved?
