Living On Defi

Duration: 00:19:37

Speaker: Mariano Conti

Type: Talk

Expertise: Beginner

Event: Devcon 5

Date: Oct 2019

Living in Argentina but getting paid in Dai, I can access financial systems that are usually not available to us. I want to show how Ethereum's DeFi movement has been working fine for the last 2 years, by leveraging Dai and secondary lending platforms, and how that is changing the financial reality for people in developing economies. Someone in South America getting paid in crypto can access more stable currencies than their local ones, with better interest rates, and this is all happening right now, and scaling right now.
