Business Ethics Week: Decentralized Finance Unlocking Radical Inclusion and Sustainability Investing
Hosts: Professors Todd Feldman and Susan Cholette
Sponsoring Student Organization: Blockchain Crypto Analysis Trading (BCAT) Club
While cryptocurrency has a reputation for being carbon intensive, many in the crypto community are invested, financially and otherwise, in sustainability. Join us to hear Fintech/Crypto expert Breaux Walker (link to speaker-bio-page) explain how decentralized Finance (DeFi) may be better suited for financing ESG initiatives than traditional funding. He’s passionate about decentralized finance (DeFi) being a technology that can bring the billions of underbanked individuals into the financial system and out of poverty. He will then take questions from Blockchain Crypto Analysis Trading (BCAT) Club members as well as the audience. (And don’t worry, we will also have a brief primer for those who are still confused by what all these terms are.)
