Why DeFI Matters: With Ian Horne

What Cryptoassets, Web 3 and the Metaverse Really Mean for Finance

No transcript...

HI FINTECHTALKERS, (follow me on Twitter (X) for lively discussions on these topics @PADDYRAMANATHAN),

I sat down with Ian Horne, author of Why DeFI Matters to discuss his book. This was recorded on the sidelines of Money2020.

We talk about how DeFI changes to the financial system factor whereas fintech is essentially a distribution innovation, and how Web3 fundamentally changes the business model of the internet. Ian talks about successful projects in DefI/Crypto that don’t get much attention and what he is most excited about.

Enjoy and always be in the know,
