DeFi in the future finance is a set of four courses that I'm offering that focus on decentralized finance. Let me set the stage. This course is about a forthcoming revolution in finance. It's remarkable that are centralized financial system has not substantially changed over the past century, while there's digitization with the same banks, brokers, exchanges, insurance companies, and central monetary authorities. I will argue that the current system is failing, why does it cost 300 basis points every time a credit card is swiped? Why are savings rate zero or negative? Why are barring rates so high? Why is the transfer of money expensive, slow, and insecure? How is it possible in the age of the Internet that it can take two days to transfer the ownership after I buy shares in a company? Why during the global financial crisis that we have to bailout the very institutions that caused the crisis? Why are there 1.7 billion people in the world that are unbanked and many more under banked? Decentralized finance, or DeFi, is an emerging disruption. In decentralized finance we interact amongst peers via smart contracts. These algorithms do not carry the baggage of traditional finance. There are no layers of bureaucracy and back-office staff. When peers interact, there's no middle person making a large spread or commission. Furthermore decentralized apps are interoperable, for example, in centralized finance it might take days to send money from your broker to your bank or vice versa, no such delay exists in DeFi. Finally the current system is very opaque. We rely upon government regulators to watch for trouble in our financial sector and history suggests a dubious track record of monitoring. In DeFi everything is transparent a key characteristic, a block chain technology. Let me describe what we cover in this learning experience. In the first course, DeFi Infrastructure we begin by exploring the origins of DeFi and take a broad historical view from the earliest barter economies to the present day. We then focus on the key infrastructure components; blockchain, cryptocurrency, smart contracts, oracles, stable coins, and decentralized applications or dApps. Next, we focused on the specific problems that DeFi is designed to solve; inefficiency, limited access, opacity, centralized control, and lack of interoperability. The second course is called DeFi Primitives. Here we talk about transaction mechanics, fungible and non-fungible tokens or NFTs, custody, supply adjustment, incentives, swaps, collateralized loans, and flash loans. The third course is called DeFi Deep Dive. It is the longest of the four courses and focuses on some of the leading protocols in the DeFi space. We will look at credit and lending and feature makerDAO, compounds and Aave, decentralized exchange with an analysis of how protocols like Uniswap work, derivatives, featuring yield protocol dy, dx and synthetics and tokenization with an analysis of the set protocol as well as wrapped Bitcoin. The final course is called DeFi Risks. Any analysis of a new technology must clearly gauge the risks and challenges. The topics include; smart contract risk, governance risk, oracle risk, scaling risk, decentralized exchange or DEX risk, custodial risk, environmental risk as well as regulatory risk. Let me also tell you what this series is not. This set of courses does not teach you how to trade Bitcoin, this is a course about understanding the foundation of a new financial system, it is a system of inclusion of financial democracy where all peers are treated equally. Importantly the current way of a fintech largely uses the current centralized financial architecture. I believe many of these firms are fleeting and they in turn will be replaced by decentralized protocols. To be clear I'm not talking about a renovation of our current financial system I'm talking about a complete rebuild from the bottom-up. The course is largely based upon my new book, DeFi and the Future of Finance, written with Ashwin Ramachandran and Joe Santorum. If you want to be part of this revolution in finance, a good starting point is this course.
