Crypto is more than just a hot (volatile…) investment - it is growing as an accepted source of payment. Billions of dollars of digital assets like Bitcoin are traded daily using new decentralized markets like Uniswap, PancakeSwap and SushiSwap. Unlike traditional markets which use market makers and order books, markets in decentralized finance use automated market makers. In this talk, Professor Tabarrok will explain how automated market makers work, the role of liquidity providers, what "impermanent loss" is and other issues related to the new world of decentralized finance.
