The Conference

 

The European Central Bank and the University College London Centre for Blockchain Technologies are hosting a workshop on peer-to-peer (P2P) financial systems. This event will bring together market participants, policymakers, regulators and academics interested in P2P financial systems to share their experiences, research and policy analyses on the topic of decentralised finance (DeFi).

 

This workshop seeks to focus the strategic debate on the opportunities provided by DeFi, and on its impact on the financial ecosystem in the context of the broader transformation that is under way. Authorities, academics and practitioners will have the opportunity to better understand this phenomenon and to identify possible future developments and dynamics that will ensure an innovative, integrated and developed landscape in Europe and around the world.

Call for Papers

The workshop organisers invite authors – whether from academia, public institutions (including central banks), special interest groups or the private sector – to submit policy-oriented, theoretical and/or empirical papers. These papers should be original contributions and clearly focus on decentralised finance, covering at least one of the following three related themes:

 

Regulation & governance in decentralised (eco)systems

 

An economic perspective on decentralisation in the financial environment

 

New opportunities and challenges from decentralised systems
