The Decentralized Finance (DeFi) market has exploded in value in the past two years, with over $90 BILLION currently invested in this new asset class. (By the time you read this, that number will be higher.)
DeFi has minted a new generation of crypto millionaires, who understand how this new world of decentralized money works. Our goal is to help you learn how it works, too.
In this hands-on workshop for members, we will walk you through the concepts of DeFi, then show you how to connect your crypto wallet to several of the top DeFi platforms for lending, staking, and yield farming.
This new interactive workshop format is a small group experience, where a subject matter expert will walk you through a step-by-step screenshare of how to do it, with the ability to follow along and ask questions.
It is available for Boston Blockchain Association paid members only, in partnership with Bitcoin Market Journal. To sign up for the BBA and attend this exclusive online event:

We're seeing an exciting shift in the way people think about money. High schoolers know more about bitcoin than professional bankers. Millennials are now trading stocks on Robinhood and by reading r/WallStreetBets.
Blockchain is leading this shift toward financial literacy, by getting a new generation involved with new forms of money ... but who's still left behind?
We're thrilled to welcome Femi Faoye, who not only talks the talk, but walks the walk:
Femi has an MBA from Cornell University, and a background as an investment banker. More importantly, he's co-founder and CEO of D.R.E.A.M., a financial education company with a mission to empower underrepresented, underserved, urban youth.
Best of all, he's a blockchain believer. Femi sees blockchain as a tool to close the wealth gap between white Americans and African Americans.
Femi has witnessed, first-hand, the crippling effects of financial illiteracy in communities, and he's worked for over a decade to make things better. From his career in banking and finance, Femi understands how the system works -- and he's working to improve it.
Join this important conversation to learn:
- The state of financial literacy today
- How blockchain is helping usher in a new era of financial literacy
- The leverage points that will get us the most rapid improvement
- What you can do to get involved
RSVP on this page to get the link to attend, and meet Femi afterward in our virtual networking session.
