Don’t miss a Daily Maverick webinar on Beyond Bitcoin: Decentralised Finance and the End of Banks (7 Apr)
Join Steven Boykey Sidley and Simon Dingle for a Daily Maverick webinar to discuss their book Beyond Bitcoin: Decentralised Finance and the End of Banks.
After over a decade of Bitcoin, which has now moved beyond lore and hype into an increasingly robust star in the firmament of global assets, a new and more important question has arisen. What happens beyond Bitcoin? The answer is decentralised finance or DeFi.
Tech and finance experts Steven Boykey Sidley and Simon Dingle argue that DeFi – which enables all manner of financial transactions to take place directly, person to person, without the involvement of financial institutions – will redesign the cogs and wheels in the engines of trust, and make the remarkable rise of Bitcoin look quaint by comparison. It will disrupt and displace fine and respectable companies, if not entire industries.
Join economist, trend analyst and futurist Bronwyn Williams in conversation with award-winning novelist Steven Boykey Sidley and founder of Luno exchange Simon Dingle as they unpack this intriguing topic.
