Shaping the Future of Financial Services with Decentralised Finance – Ecosystm Global Leaders Roundtable at Singapore FinTech Festival 2021


Is Decentralised Finance taking over the banking world? Decentralised Finance is an emerging phenomenon, and it has been gaining the attention of the mainstream media since 2020.

Globally, about 1.7 billion adults remain unbanked. There’s a race to “bank the unbanked” to promote financial inclusion. On the other end of the spectrum, there are also efforts to “un-bank the banked”. With the rise of blockchain, it’s time to reformulate the consumer banking system with more secure and more affordable financial products. We hear from an unparalleled group of Decentralised Finance innovators and change-makers on how Decentralised Finance will define the next era of global finance. Hear from Dr Ben Goertzel of SingularityNET, Johann Eid of Chainlink Labs, Sudhir Pai of Capgemini and Justin Amos of Lygon. This session was moderated by Anjali Kapoor of Alt Key Theory.

Organised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the 6th edition of the Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) ran from 8 -12 November 2021. The annual event brings together 60,000 participants from 160 countries – both virtually and in-person – for the development of financial services, public policy and technology.
