Will decentralized finance strengthen or weaken GAFA?

Will GAFA benefit from the rise of DeFi?

This first prediction is made by Vincent Lorphelin , co-president of the Institut de l’Iconomie and founder of Venture Patents .

By paving the way for a decentralized Web, balancing the years of centralization when the GAFAs took control of the Internet, DeFi is supposed to harm GAFA.

Many believe that the development of DeFi risks weakening the power of GAFA. What if it was the other way around?

Who is the Institute of Economics?

Association created in 2011, the Institute of the Economy is an independent think tank which analyzes the stakes, the balance of power as well as the risks and the opportunities to draw a possible future. Its members often have opposing sensitivities, which in fact requires them to refer to the rigor of foresight, hence the formation of predictions.

The Institute of the Economy is composed in particular of entrepreneurs, economists, managers, statisticians, researchers and sociologists.

The speakers of this webinar are therefore not from the “crypto-sphere” and do not necessarily share the ideals of cypherpunks or the majority of people who own crypto-assets. However, it is still interesting to see how the future of the cryptocurrency industry is viewed.
