DACOM DeFi 2021 Panel

Date and time






Crypto and decentralized finance (DeFi) introduce a plethora of opportunities to transform financial services, making them more accessible, transparent and efficient. At the same time, they also introduce a new world of risks and uncertainties, which regulators, financial institutions and investors worldwide are just beginning to grapple with. As blockchain-based finance continues to tap value locked within legacy infrastructures and decades-old business practices, the crypto and DeFi space will need to continually find ways to bridge finance and finance 2.0.

"The Future of Trading Venues and Regulatory Outlook" panel will explore perspectives on the future of trading venues and offer suggestions on how, and in what ways, regulators should address this space.
