The Equilibrium, a multichain framework for DeFi products, and EOS-based decentralized stablecoin called EOSDT are going to host the Crypto DeFiance event at the blockchain festival BlockShow Asia 2019. The gathering will be held for the first time in Singapore on Nov. 16.
Crypto DeFiance consists of keynote presentations and panel discussions devoted to the future of decentralized finance and the potential of blockchain technology. Both blockchain business professionals and crypto enthusiasts will have the chance to become better aware of the nature of DeFi regulation, DApp development and the impact blockchain use cases can make in developing countries. The guests will have the opportunity to exchange their ideas with DeFi experts and establish useful contacts.
Key speakers and rubrics
At Crypto Defiance, representatives from companies providing different kinds of crypto-based financial services are going to discuss today’s challenges and opportunities of decentralized finances. The topics range from the fate of traditional finance and the advantages of decentralized exchanges to blockchain security and things to consider when developing decentralized applications.
Experts will also talk about best practices for global digital finance, stablecoins being the basis for global DeFi, as well as why liquidity matters and how mass adoption can be accomplished. At the end of the event, participants are invited to take part in a DeFi workshop and ideas competition.
The list of speakers includes Galia Benartzi, co-founder of Bancor; Eric Benz, CEO of crypto exchange Changelly; Josh Goodbody, head of Europe and the Americas for digital asset ecosystem Huobi Global; George Zarya, CEO of crypto asset platform Bequant; Alex Melikhov, CEO of Equilibrium; Teana Baker-Taylor, executive director and board member of GDF; Alexis Sirkia, co-founder of liquidity service provider GSR and founder of Yellow.com; Julien Auchecorne, chief operating officer of XBTO; Alex Koumpas, co-founder and chief technology officer of crypto hedge fund Crypton; as well as many other speakers who will be announced soon.
The guests of BlockShow Asia 2019 can attend the event completely free of charge. For those who do not have tickets to BlockShow Asia, tickets for this event can be bought for $75 — though there is a $25 discount if they are purchased using EOSDT.
DeFi ideas contest
Equilibrium says it also organizes an ideas contest within Crypto DeFiance. The company promises a $5,000 grant for the visioner who offers the best DeFi concept. The description of the idea — as well as current and next stages of the project’s development together with links to prototypes (if any) — should be submitted before Nov. 15. Three finishers will have the chance to present their products on stage in front of the jury. It can be done virtually as well. The winner will be chosen by open vote and be awarded the grant as soon as the project reaches the next milestone of its development.
The main organizer of the event
Equilibrium represents a multichain framework and an environment offering the creation of crypto-backed stablecoins and DeFi applications. The first product based on the Equilibrium framework is EOSDT, a USD-pegged decentralized stablecoin launched on the EOS blockchain.
As the company points out, stablecoins can help traders avoid high volatility risks and provide a number of real-world use cases — such as loans, hedging and online payments. Equilibrium says the framework is also going to offer IT-specialists an extensive developer kit and an environment for bootstrapping DeFi products and services.
Coming back to the event, the company reports that “Crypto DeFiance is a new global DeFi event that unites established innovators, financial market disruptors, DApp developers, experienced traders, avid technologists, and the wider blockchain community.”
In essence, Crypto DeFiance is an event for everyone who is interested in decentralized finances, who wishes to expand their knowledge in this sphere and who wants to be informed on DeFi’s future prospects.
