CAPE TOWN, South Africa, July 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – via CryptoCurrencyWire – Bitcoin Events is delighted to announce its 2sd DeFi annual conference which will take place online on August 5, 2021.
As a proud host of the Annual Blockchain Africa Conference and Crypto Fest, Bitcoin Events is now adding the DeFi Conference as its third series of annual events that explores disruptive innovations in the cryptocurrency technology industry and of the blockchain.
The DeFi 2021 conference, The rise of decentralized finance, will explore two of the hottest trends to emerge in the industry in recent years: DeFi and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT).
Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology offer many advantages over conventional assets – especially in times of crisis – the most important of which is their decentralized nature. The DeFi ecosystem flourishes and opens up a parallel financial system that sets new standards of access, resilience and transparency.
NFTs have exploded in popularity in recent months as they upend the rules of digital ownership. They have become so popular because digital collectibles can come in almost any form, giving artists and content creators a unique opportunity to monetize their work.
On the DeFi track, speakers will explore the factors contributing to the rise of decentralized finance, its impact on the current financial system and market players such as international remittances, lending and borrowing, derivatives, trade, payments and transfer of assets.
On the NFT track, speakers will discuss the current state of NFTs, their environmental impact, copyright issues, major markets and platforms for creating NFTs, the legal implications of NFTs and the future of NFTs.
The future is certainly exciting for DeFi and NFTs, and the decentralization movement will have a significant impact in the future.
The event will bring together an unrivaled team of DeFi and NFT industry leaders and change makers to share their experiences on how they are shaping the next era of global finance and digital property.
An impressive list of speakers includes:
Yele Bademosi – CEO of Bundle Africa and founding partner of MicrotractionShazaib Jaffer – Co-founder of DimoMaría Paula Fernández – Advisor at GolemStephen Stonberg – CEO of Bittrex GlobalJohn Wu – President of Ava LabsDuke Vu – CEO and founder of Ulti ArenaMohammed Carrim Ganey – CFO and Co-Founder of CurateRan Neu Ner – CEO of Onchain CapitalKristina Lucrezia Cornèr – Acting Editor-in-Chief at CointelegraphJesus Rodriguez – CEO and Co-Founder of IntoTheBlockJoshua Ellul – Director of the DLT Center at the University of Malta and President of Malta Digital Innovation Authority Edan Yago – Sovryn Contributor Zack Burks – Founder and CEO of Mintable Jack Lu – Founder and CEO of Wanchain
