In a 2 hour long session a myriad of topics were discussed, ranging from the Problems DeFi are trying to solve, ways of generating yield, risk management & type of losses, need of regulation, building a next generation blockchain, unresolved security problems, rise of decentralized finance. They also discussed the re-org attacks on blockchain, bringing more stability through Ethereum 2.0, history revision Proof-of-Stake problem to exploring NFTs, difference between perceived value of original & a copy, importance of luxury & symbiotic relationship, story behind the famous NFT projects – Beeple, Crypto Punks, Bored Ape Yacht Club, and many more.
A group of blockchain-focused researchers created pledge. Michael Ren, Pledge Finance’s CTO, who holds a PhD degree in AI from a high profile university in US, mentioned that Pledge will ultimately be more scalable than Blockfi. It will also continue to explore the opportunities to bridge the gap between centralized and decentralized finance ecosystem by potentially getting listed on traditional exchanges.
Pledge will continue to innovate outside of the decentralized finance landscape and march into the traditional micro-financing market. Now Pledge is already talking with institutions that have micro-financing solutions and licenses.
Utilizing Binance Smart Chain, Pledge aims to facilitate long-term financing for crypto holders, something the researchers say has yet to be addressed in the industry. The protocol achieves this goal by allowing users to diversify their portfolios with non-crypto assets without being exposed to interest-rate volatility.
