It has been two years since the DeFi Summer in 2020. Back then, DeFi, powered by AMM, recorded exponential growth. However, as time passed by, the field matured, and many DeFi projects pursue “innovation” by stacking up complex financial assets, business logic, and incentive mechanisms, making themselves vulnerable to bearish market impacts. In fact, DeFi has always suffered from a shortage of innovative, mature derivatives. In terms of long-term value, the decentralized derivatives market has huge potential and is at the core of the entire DeFi ecosystem.
That said, can decentralized derivatives protocols eliminate the silos of DeFi protocols? How can investors seize opportunities brought by DeFi derivatives among the countless innovative projects? In this live AMA, ViaBTC Capital invited DeFiance Capital Founder Arthur Cheong, ZKX founder Eduard Jubany Tur, Aperture CEO Lian Zhu, DefiYield Board Member Michael and Volare Partner May , all of whom are professional investors and project founders who have been dedicated to the blockchain industry for years, and we expect them to spark new ideas during the live AMA.
