Join Executives From YFDAI alongside Industry Experts For The First Annual DeFi Summit

Dear Community,

We are pleased to announce that YFDAI is actively participating at DeFi Summit, the world’s largest-ever conference solely dedicated to Decentralized Finance!

DeFi Summit is a free, week-long virtual event taking place most of this week (June 14 — June 18) where some of the leading creators, developers, and executives contributing to the growth of the rapidly-expanding DeFi community are scheduled to attend.

Attendees to DeFi Summit will have the opportunity to hear from individuals like Johann Eid, Head of Integration at Chainlink; SJ Park, who is Director of Special Projects at Terra Form Labs; tech entrepreneur and owner of the Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban who will join the Polygon Power Hour panel; one of the initial team members of Graph, Tegan Kline; Peter Kacherginsky, Principal Blockchain Security Engineer at Coinbase; General Partner of Gumi Cryptos Capital Miko Matsumara; and many more.

The talks and presentations cover a wide-range of areas in DeFi. From NFTs in DeFi to bringing DeFi to Bitcoin, from building privacy for DeFi to DeFi education for women, attending the DeFi Summit can help you stay on the cutting-edge. Co-founders of DeFi Summit Justin Wu and Michael Hyunh have put together a stellar conference which we believe will contribute greatly to the education, collaboration and innovation essential to the sustainable growth and success of the DeFi ecosystem at-large.

In addition, the Summit schedule includes a DeFi Demo Day, DeFi Trader Roundtable and concludes with a Decentraland after party.

We believe there is a ton of value all of you who help to make up the YFDAI community can gain from attending DeFi Summit, and this is why we are delighted to be an Emerald Sponsor for the conference, along with other top crypto and DeFi projects such as Skale, Stacks, QuickSwap, and LiquefyLabs. With being an Emerald Sponsor we are presented with the kind of visibility that helps us to introduce the ethos of YFDAI to a wider audience as well as support the further democratization of finance.
