On the 12th of December 2020, Japan’s largest blockchain incubation hub, Binarystar, will host the Business Blockchain Expo following September Expo. For this Expo, Moonstake is now sponsoring the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) section and will serve as a gateway to introduce prominent DeFi projects to the Japanese market.
Business Blockchain Expo is a business matching event organized by Binarystar that connects domestic and overseas blockchain operators with Japanese industry. In the “DeFi section” sponsored by Moonstake, the invited speakers are from the forefront of the defi industry such as MakerDAO, NEO Flamingo, and Zilliqa, the world’s most advanced technologies and projects in DeFi. There will be a wide range of discussions on what the DeFi community expects on the Japan market from a DeFi perspective.
Currently, DeFi is the hottest area in the blockchain industry. The expansion of the DeFi ecosystem has been huge. Since the beginning of this year, DeFi’s total locks were US $ 1 billion at the end of 2019 and now growing to over $14 billion. Along with staking, which is expected to grow over the $50billion market with the spread of Proof of Stake (PoS) where strong growth is expected.
Moonstake will take the innovative technology of blockchain further by integrating service development through staking with DeFi. Starting with the sponsorship of this DeFi section for the Business Blockchain Expo, we will contribute to raising awareness of DeFi in the Japan market and creating new business opportunities.
