The Misfit Economy - Conversations on DeFi

22 Aug 2019 - Blockchain Week Berlin

Around the world, marginalized industries and populations are prevented from participating in the formal financial system. So what types of financial innovation are needed to address these concrete, real-world problems? Is technology the primary factor restricting access to financial services for a Somalian entrepreneur, or Cannabis company, or is it identity, an oppressive regime, or something else? Just as the internet allowed for the creation of a new information infrastructure, blockchain technology allows for the creation of a new financial infrastructure. The DeFi movement has emerged in an attempt to make the infrastructure that supports new and existing blockchain-based markets just as decentralized as the underlying technology, increasing transparency, decreasing costs, and reducing the opportunity for censorship and / or manipulation.
