Event description
Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and MakerDAO protocol

About this Event

We’re all familiar with FinTech and how it is disrupting the financial industry, but what about DeFi? How can trustless technology upgrade the current financial infrastructure?

The invention of blockchain and cryptocurrencies has enabled new, conceptually unique products and services based on a decentralized technology layer. Projects working in DeFi (decentralized finance) use decentralized networks and open source software to create unique financial services and products.

At the DeFi meetup in Ljubljana, we’ll have the opportunity to hear from MakerDAO, the most successful DeFi project. MakerDAO is a protocol built on top of Ethereum and runs the first decentralized stablecoin, DAI, which is pegged to 1 USD. After the ICO euphoria, DeFi products and MakerDAO protocol are leading Ethereum network utilization.

Agenda:

18.15 Welcome speech (Marina Markežič, Unlawcked)

18.20 MakerDAO & DeFi Overview (Primož Kordež, Block Analitica)

  • DAI stablecoin (the inner workings of the MakerDAO protocol)
  • MakerDAO governance and our role as part of the MakerDAO Risk Team
  • Usage of decentralized finance
  • Multicollateral Dai

18.50 DAI Apps (Petru Catana, MakerDAO)

  • Apps developed on top of the MakerDAO protocol
  • DAI adoption in the ecosystem

19.20 Panel Discussion: Petru Catana (MakerDAO), Primož Kordež (Block Analitica), and Peter Trček (LoCoins, Blockchain Think Tank Slovenija), moderated by Anja Blaj (Unlawcked)

During the panel discussion, we’ll go beyond the mere description of MakerDAO services and talk about the adoption, challenges, and future of finance. The key to MakerDAO’s success is building the right products, but even more important is the community of users and partners. Block Analitica, which contributes to the MakerDAO protocol, is leading the initiative to enhance awareness of the DAI stablecoin in the Slovenian FinTech and Ethereum communities.
