Romina Sejas, Community Manager of Buenbit, gave a talk from Argentina on „The foundations for a new financial paradigm
Within the framework of the Blockchain Summit Latam Online 2020, Romina Sejas, Community Manager of Buenbit, gave a talk from Argentina on „The foundations for a new financial paradigm“, emphasising decentralised finance, also known as DeFi.
Sejas highlighted that the Crypto Genius network is the platform where DeFi is mostly developed. However, he clarified that there are also other blockchains where DeFi is being tried to be built.
On the other hand, he commented: „With regard to those who say that the DeFi winter is coming, I believe that in reality the ecosystem is being purified and we are in a first stage of maturation“.
Thinking that in DeFi you can find several elements to manage finances in decentralized ways, Sejas also highlighted the contrast between different markets: „From LATAM we can see DeFi as a way to protect ourselves or save money. But in Spain they are looking at how to maximize returns.
He went on to say that it is important to see whether we are evaluating DeFi from a numbers perspective or whether we are evaluating the great development on a technical level. In that sense, he said that there are „brilliant developers“. And he also highlighted that what is happening includes various fields, such as finance, micro and macro economics, programming.
He said that we are witnessing one of the most complex moments in the ecosystem and „it will be hard to digest“.
He also did not let it pass that one of the criticisms this year was the increase of gas in the Ethereum network. But he clarified: „There are already people to provide solutions about this“.
