Decentralised Finance is a means to reduce the control and influence of centralized institutes and politics over money and financial products. It is a peer-to-peer global financial system that operates on smart contracts and computer codes rather than relying on middlemen or third parties.
In recent times, the decentralized financial system has exhibited rapid growth. DeFi products like Compound and Aave have gained enormous popularity. Combined with other DeFi protocols, they have taken the net value locked in DeFi across 6.5 billion dollars.
Sponsored by KVB Kunlun, CCPAA-ON is hosting a webniar providing an overview on the trending topics surrounding recent developments in financial technology: Blockchain Payment & Open DeFi.
