DeFi Conference 2021

Online: 5 August 2021

The Blockchain Academy is excited to announce its partnership with Bitcoin Events, organisers of the longest-running blockchain and cryptocurrencies events in Africa. 

The DeFi Conference 2021 is a free 1 day online conference on the 5 August 2021. The event will consist of two tracks and about 35 global speakers sharing their knowledge on Decentralised Finance (DeFi).

DeFi is short for ‘Decentralised Finance’, an umbrella term for a variety of financial applications in cryptocurrency geared towards disrupting financial intermediaries. DeFi offers financial products on a public decentralised blockchain, open to anyone to use rather than going through a middleman like banks or brokerages.

The focus of the event will be on:
– Decentralised exchanges
– DeFi platforms
– Decentralised lending and borrowing
– Yield farming
– Technology hurdles
– Smart contracts and regulation

The event will provide attendees with an immersive experience, plenty of engagement with well-known speakers and thought leaders, fantastic networking opportunities and showcase the real-world applications on how this technology is being used globally.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear speakers debate highly contentious and emotive topics, network with other delegates at the networking event and build relationships with companies and individuals who are actively involved in the space.

Since inception, Bitcoin Events has cut through the hype and provided a platform for educating, upskilling and driving long-term strategies on the benefits and challenges that cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology offers for businesses, governments, non-profits, and individuals.
