The DeFi Uprising

BLA x Economics Design
28/09/2020
Session 3 is coming on Monday, 28 September.

Dive into the tokenomics of DeFi projects.

The DeFi economy has grown massively this year as the total value reached 7 billion on 26 august 2020.

One day in DeFi is indeed 7 years in traditional finance. However, the barrier of adopting DeFi as a platform remains, as the general public does not understand the concept of DeFi well. Both the complexity of finance and blockchain technology is a barrier to mass adoption.We believe that DeFi is more than a short-term trend and it fundamentally innovates our existing financial system, giving the world access to an unlimited number of financial products and services.

BLA2020 is a three-part digital event* that aims to educate the masses about the potential of DeFi and inspire mass adoption of this technology.

*BLA is made possible by our fantastic community of partners and sponsors. Nothing we say in this show is financial advice. All opinions are strictly the opinions of the individual speakers and should not be treated as otherwise. Read our event disclaimer here.
