A Fireside Chat with Asiff Hirji, hosted by Princeton Assistant Professor of Economics Jonathan Payne

This event was presented as an online webinar.

Asiff Hirji, President of Figure Technologies and former President & COO of Coinbase and TD Ameritrade discusses how blockchain, and the DeFi movement, will transform financial services.

Through the provision of an immutable ledger, public registry and real-time bilateral transaction settlement capability, the application of blockchain technology will meaningfully reduce the risk, cost and capital requirements associated with current financial systems and infrastructure as well as eliminate the need for most financial intermediaries.

Sponsored by Princeton’s Bendheim Center for Finance, the Julis Rabinowitz Center for Public Policy & Finance, and the Center for Information Technology Policy
