Title of presentation:
Security challenges in decentralized finance
Abstract of presentation:
I will give a brief overview of decentralized finance (deFi), an exciting space that uses blockchains and smart contracts to avoid intermediaries. Unfortunately, too many accidents happen in deFi (costing 10s of millions of euros). Improved quality control, standardization and regulation can help to solve some of these issues.
