Always wanted to understand the hype on blockchain and cryptocurrencies? Only heard about smart contracts and don't really know what it is? Then don't miss this unique opportunity to listen to the highly demanded blockchain professor Fabian Schär from the University of Basel!

The term decentralized finance (DeFi) refers to an alternative financial infrastructure built on top of the public blockchains. DeFi uses smart contracts to create protocols that replicate existing financial services in a more open, interoperable, and transparent way. In this talk, Prof. Dr. Fabian Schär will highlight opportunities, risks, and potential regulatory responses.
