DeFi Forward Strategies for the Future
The blockchain sector should prioritize increasing DeFi usage, specifically in Asia. In this field, innovation and new firms demand constant encouragement and empowerment. Only a reliable digital currency will allow DeFi to exist. Tether coin is one of the stablecoins that supports DeFi projects.
Forward Labs has also teamed with NFT artist LUNGtiger to increase their understanding of blockchain technology. And to give opportunities for NFT works by freshmen at Chiang Mai University’s College of Arts, Media, and Technology.
Any service offered by conventional financial institutions should be available through DeFi. In essence, Defi is the mapping of traditional financial services into blockchain-based financial services, resulting in new services or derivatives based on the distinctive qualities of blockchain.
Parallely, Forward will be situated to play an important role in the evolving DeFi ecosystem as an outcome of the funding. Using the funding, the company wants to expand its business, hire more employees, and expand in major places.
