Could Aave, Uniswap, Compound, and other emerging cryptocurrencies represent the future of Wall Street? Join our Fintech interest group for an in-depth conversation on the disruptive potential of Decentralized Finance (DeFi)—applications on public blockchains aiming to create financial services without centralized intermediaries. A recent research report from Messari positions DeFi as a set of potential long-term, world-altering solutions to current challenges. Individuals could use this emerging technology to coordinate financial activities peer-to-peer at a global scale.

Delve into the response of traditional centralized finance (CeFi) institutions, hear objective and diverse perspectives on the current state of DeFi innovation, and explore potential game changers that could impact DeFi’s scalability and adoption potential when you attend this discussion.
