With decentralized finance challenging the centralized financial system by empowering individuals with peer-to-peer digital exchanges, it becomes the catalyst for financial institutions to transition from legacy systems to blockchain-based systems. For example, with regard to cross-border payments, we are seeing blockchain starting to disrupt traditional financial systems.  

However, the key challenge for regulators and the crypto space is: how do we stop predators from taking advantage of decentralized protocols but at the same time not affecting legitimate transactions? 

We have witnessed large organizations in the Asia Pacific establishing tokenized CBDC-Central Bank Digital Currency and linking up their domestic payments network to the respective banks to enable a cross-border payment transaction using CBDC currency to reduce friction and offer better security and stability. 

 

The panel will discuss the following: 

  • Impact of Defi on the APAC’s banking system 

  • Security risks and ways predators crack into the decentralized finance system 

  • Use of blockchain in establishing secure transactions 

  • Tokenization of CBDC in establishing friction-less secure payments transaction
