About this event

Anonymity, guaranteed execution, transparency, trust minimisation, efficiency are all the core values, which blockchain visionaries introduced with the invention of Decentralised Finance. Since then, DeFi legos have inspired a lot of creativity in the space - algorithmic stable coins, synthetic assets, self-paying loans, yield farming, and so much more…

With endless possibilities like this, however, where are cryptocurrency markets headed? Why did we invent DeFi in the first place? Are DeFi values threatened? Do community members understand how to keep markets functioning? Which DeFi tools are the best defence against centralised control? It is our responsibility to make sure we don’t lose sight of the foundational values of Decentralised Finance.

You will learn first hand about Bancor v3, how it will reshape Automated Market Makers (AMMs) with its state of the art DeFi liquidity solution, Single Sided Staking, and integration with Chainlink Keepers.

Agenda 6:00pm to 6:30pm -- Greetings and Introduction 6:30pm to 7:30pm -- Fireside Chat with Mark Richardson, Bancor 7:30pm to 9:00pm -- Networking & Happy Hour

Bancor is the only DeFi trading and staking protocol with Single-Sided Liquidity & 100% Impermanent Loss Protection.

Bancor generates millions in fees per month for depositors, offering up to 30% APR on 150+ tokens like ETH, WBTC, LINK, MATIC, AMP, SNX & more.

Dr. Mark Richardson was formerly an Organic Chemist at Australia’s National Science Agency who began contributing to the Bancor Protocol through its DAO in 2020 and now as Bancor’s Chief Product Architect uses concepts from the physical and life sciences to design DeFi products that better service the liquidity needs of cryptocurrency markets.
