Money markets have evolved into a primary use-case in decentralized finance. DeFi pioneer Stani Kulechov will introduce Aave Protocol, the open-source protocol for the creation of money markets on Ethereum. Stani will dive into how money markets can help users achieve financial freedom, and give some inspiration for hackers to build an open, transparent, and equitable future for finance.
Stani Kulechov is the Founder and CEO of Aave, an open source and non-custodial money market protocol to earn interest on deposits and borrow assets. Stani was studying law at the University of Helsinki when he first got into Ethereum and he started exploring how it could impact the traditional financial system. In 2017, Stani released ETHLend, one of the first DeFi DApps ever. Since then, he has made it his mission to create tools for an open, transparent, and equitable financial ecosystem through Aave Protocol.
