From bull to bear in the DeFi crypto market

After a rocky period in the world of cryptocurrency, what next for the decentralized finance (DeFi) market? Find out in our podcast. 

An opportunity too good to miss? Risky or simply suffering growing pains? We’re talking about decentralized finance (DeFi) just weeks after crypto investors experienced what traditional finance institutions term a ‘bear market’. 

In a fascinating conversation, Capgemini Invent’s Chief Technology and Innovation Officer Kary Bheemaiah and Dragonfly Capital Managing Partner Haseeb Qureshi assess the stellar rise of crypto as an “intrinsically subversive technology” and today’s turmoil in the DeFi market. 

Together, they consider the causes of the current disruption and look ahead at what’s next for the groundbreaking technologies and protocols that continue to shape the rapidly changing world of cryptocurrency. There are comparisons with the evolution of the internet and even the home tech stack. 

How does DeFi work? What about regulation and auditability? Who will seize the moment to gobble up some of today’s movers and shakers? Kary and Haseeb consider a future where DeFi moves beyond being a vehicle largely for wealthy investors to one that gives the same opportunities to people who don’t have access to financial platforms and services. 

From capital investment and the scalability of blockchains, to Web 3.0 and the role of established financial services firms in this new world, our podcast is a must listen-to experience for anyone with an interest in DeFi and crypto.
