What fascinates you most about DeFi? What I find truly fascinating about DeFi, or decentralized finance, is the concept of self-sovereignty that it embodies. This groundbreaking financial model empowers individuals to take control of their own financial assets, transactions, and decision-making processes. By leveraging blockchain technology and smart contracts, DeFi enables people to bypass traditional financial intermediaries like banks and investment firms, granting them greater autonomy and flexibility in managing their finances. This shift towards a more decentralized and democratized financial ecosystem has the potential to redefine the way we think about money and asset management, ultimately fostering a more inclusive and equitable financial future.

When and what was your first touchpoint with DeFi? My first touchpoint with DeFi occurred in 2019 when I was searching for an economically challenging topic for my master thesis. During this time, I discovered the burgeoning world of decentralized finance, which piqued my interest due to its innovative approach to traditional financial systems.
