Event description
Decentralized finance (DeFi) has been making waves over the last year following the surge in platforms and products offering DeFi services.

About this Event

DeFi is conventional financial tools built on a blockchain. Ethereum is one of the platforms widely used for lending protocols, security tokens, derivatives, exchanges and more. Defi are mostly predicated on open-source protocols or modular frameworks for creating and issuing digital assets and are designed to confer notable advantages of operating on a public blockchain like censorship-resistance and improved access to financial services.

In this event we talk about Decentralized finance and present HashMarket, a market for renting "Hash Power". It buys and/or sells hash power normally used for bitcoin mining. The price of hash power is often more than its "worth in bitcoin" (= the amount of bitcoin it is expected to generate). One example of such a marketplace was GPUMAX, ran by Pirateat40.

Hash markets can be used to obtain large amounts of hash power, in order to perform various attacks that require high hash rate against some alt-chains (or theoretically bitcoin itself).

19:30-19:45 Registration

19:45-20:00 Welcome session
