Banking without Banks: Decentralized Finance is Coming

Description

Could we have a financial industry without banks or brokers? That’s the vision of decentralized finance – or DeFi – in which financial products are built from tamper-proof digital smart contracts interacting with blockchains. Sergey Nazarov, co-founder of Chainlink, joins Azeem Azhar to explore the promise of this emerging sector to bring greater transparency, control, and yield for both customers and businesses.


They also discuss:



  • How blockchains and smart contracts work together to reconfigure the fundamentals of finance, as we currently experience it.

  • Why the outrage felt by Robinhood users (when trading in GameStop was paused) reveals an underlying weakness in traditional finance.

  • What blockchain oracles are, and how Chainlink is using them to build the decentralized infrastructure that will enable the widespread adoption of DeFi products and cryptocurrencies.
