Is DeFi really decentralised?

Decentralised finance (DeFi) has taken the financial world by storm. But, with the latest volatility in mind, how decentralised is DeFi after all?

In this session co hosted with Eversheds Sutherland, we heard Alan Cheung (Senior Director, Trust and AI Technologies, ASTRI), Dr King-lun Au (Executive Director and Board Member, Financial Services Development Council), Frankie Tam (Of Counsel, Technology, Hong Kong, Eversheds Sutherland), and Wesley Pang (Partner, Registered Foreign Lawyer (New York, USA), Eversheds Sutherland) about decentralised finance .

As new regulatory regimes take shape and crypto companies come to terms with the autonomous capabilities of DeFi, the world of finance must examine the fundamentals of what decentralisation really means.

We welcomed our guests for a networking breakfast at the China Club courtesy of Eversheds Sutherland.
