When and what was your first touchpoint with DeFi? First Touchpoint was AAVE and being a part of DeFi Talents Cohort 1 allowed me to get deeper into that rabbit-hole
My favorite DeFi protocol/project: Lending Protocols like Compound, Derivatives like Mirror Protocol, Yield Protocols like Yearn.fi are interesting.
What fascinates you most about DeFi? The idea of having Open Finance Innovation that allows the financial system to become decentralised is most fascinating thing about DeFi. This will also allow the consumers to have the power of choice, instant transactions and drive great efficiency into our current financial system.
Your favourite Crypto Influencer? The cult favourites – Satoshi Nakamoto and Vitalik Buterin
Fun Facts about you: Love to dance, Bachata is my new skill 🙂
