About the talk
The bedrock of DeFi must be high quality collateral. That's why Stacks is building DeFi on Bitcoin, the highest quality collateral on Earth. The simplest financial use-case is saving and lending. This transforms Bitcoin into a savings technology. Listen to this blue-sky session on a world underpinned by BTC savings.
I started the Stacks project and I'm the CEO of Trust Machines. The mission of Trust Machines is to build the largest ecosystem of Bitcoin applications and the underlying technologies. My work brings apps and smart contracts to Bitcoin. Earlier, I received a PhD in Computer Science from Princeton University.View the profile
