June 2020 MakerDAO community call

Cash-collateral markets taking shape on the blockchain

Anna Reitman, Finadium

There’s more than a few misconceptions about how decentralized finance (DeFi) is working its way into the traditional finance industry. We spoke with Akiva Dubrofsky, CEO of Akiva Capital Holdings, about what repo and securitization market participants should know about DeFi.

 

By way of background, DeFi is a $700 million market built on emerging technologies, and Dubrofsky describes Akiva Capital’s niche as providing a “fixed savings rate based on distributed trustless stablecurrency” by offering continuous forward rate agreements (cFRA) automated by blockchain, underpinned by Ethereum infrastructure.
