DEFI – Blockchain hype or gamechanger for financial industry?

RBI´s Blockchain Hub (Group Strategy) hosted a lecture by prof. Dr. Fabian Schär discovering a trending but also controversial topic, namely, DeFi.

Promise of DeFi (= Decentralized Finance) is to remove intermediaries in current financial system (centralized finance = CeFi) and enable users to use financial services such as lending, borrowing, exchange and insurance without banks or exchanges, based solely on code (smart contract).

In the video, Prof. Dr. Fabian Schär guides us from basics of DeFi to its implications and gives us a sneak peak how he sees the future coexistence of DeFi and CeFi.
