Blockchain technology has begun to decentralize financial market infrastructure by enabling peer-to-peer transactions, and we are only in the early days. DeFi (short for Decentralized Finance) has exploded in the last year, with a series of community-driven applications that provide new protocols for trading, lending, insurance, and other financial services powered smart contracts. These automated applications have become the backbone for a truly global financial network, but not without risks. At an institutional level, the DTCC has announced a blockchain solution to shorten settlement times. How do these systems relate to existing regulations? What would this mean for the global economy? Join us for a conversation on the latest trends.
