InvestorNewsBreaks — Bitcoin Events Releases Agenda Highlights for DeFi Conference 2021: The Rise of Decentralised Finance

Bitcoin Events, Africa’s largest blockchain and cryptocurrency event coordinator, has announced details about its upcoming second annual DeFi Conference. The conference, which is Bitcoin Events third series of events — the company also hosts Blockchain Africa Conference and Crypto Fest — explores disruptive innovations in the cryptocurrency and blockchain technology industry. The DeFi conference is scheduled for Aug. 5, 2021, and will focus on two of the hottest trends to emerge in the industry: DeFi and Non-Fungible Tokens (“NFTs”). The agenda for the one-day, online event includes two tracks. On the DeFi track, industry experts will discuss what has led to the rise of decentralized finance as well as the impact that trend has had on the current financial system. The track also looks at players in markets such as in international remittance, lending and borrowing, derivatives, trading, payments and asset transfer. On the NFT track, speakers will focus on the current state of NFTs, including their environmental impact, copyright issues, the leading NFT marketplaces and creation platforms. Other topics include the legal implications of NFTs as well as the future of NFTs. Bitcoin Events noted that cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology provide numerous advantages over conventional assets, especially in times of crisis. The company is focusing on the DeFi ecosystem because it unlocks a parallel financial system that is establishing new standards for access, resilience and transparency. In addition, the company observed that NFTs have exploded in popularity and are upending the rules of digital ownership. In fact, the press release stated, “they have become so popular because digital collectibles can come in almost any form, providing artists and content creators a unique opportunity to monetise their work.” The DeFi conference features an unparalleled slate of DeFi and NFT industry leaders and change-makers as presenters.
