DeFi vs CeFi Cryptocurrency: A Programmers Perspective by Joe Homnick, CPA
Thursday, June 17th, 2021: 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
online

There is an interesting competition and interaction between decentralized finance (DeFi) and centralized finance (CeFi) currently occurring in the cryptocurrency industry.

In this session we will look at, from a software developer perspective, how CeFi and DeFi are similar and different. DeFi and CeFi share similarities in the sense that they both involve the same financial services and promote the adoption of decentralized ledger technologies (DLTs). However, several significant differences split DeFi and CeFi into two different worlds. We will drill into how both CeFi and DeFi are implemented differently regarding Decentralized Apps (DAPP), Controllability, Risk and Profitability.
