Bitcoin-native DeFi apps are emerging with the aim to provide next-generation financial services built on the world’s best-known blockchain. Dr. Chiente Hsu, an expert in the field of quantitative investments, is using Stacks to build ALEX (that’s short for “Automated Liquidity Exchange”), the first full-service DeFi platform on Bitcoin. A one-stop shop, ALEX enables the launch of tokens, fixed-rate and fixed-term lending and borrowing, decentralized exchange operations with both automated market-maker and off chain order-book protocols, the deposit of tokens to earn interest, and yield farming. Dr. Hsu, a co-founder and the CEO of ALEX, joins Real Vision’s Ash Bennington for an in-depth discussion about a future where what today we call “DeFi” is just “finance.” Recorded on May 31, 2022.
