Already a rapidly growing field in fintech, decentralized finance (DeFi) has exploded in the last year, growing from a market cap of $700 million in December 2019 to $100 billion as of April 29, 2021. The DeFi derivatives market alone has grown from $132 million in TVL (total value locked) in May 2020 to $2.78 billion one year later—a 210x increase. So there’s no better time to get acquainted with the fastest growing industry in the fintech space.
In this Meet the Expert, blockchain expert and securities attorney Alexandra Damsker teaches you the ins and outs of decentralized finance. In just an hour, you’ll get an overview of the DeFi marketplace (and its potential), explore the key building blocks of DeFi applications, find out what problems remain unsolved, and get a glimpse of where DeFi is headed.
O'Reilly Meet the Expert explores emerging business and technology topics and ideas through a series of one-hour interactive events. You’ll engage in a live conversation with experts, sharing your questions and ideas while hearing their unique perspectives, insights, fears, and predictions.
