Crash or Boom? Crypto, DeFi and NFT Mania

Tuesday, March 30, 2021 | 6:00 PM to 7:15 PM

Of all of the disruptive possible uses of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, decentralized finance (or DeFi) and non-fungible tokens (or NFT) might be the most likely to bring this technology to a wide audience—and challenge the established finance industry in the process. Join us for a fireside discussion with Michael Bucella, Paul Johnson and Donna Redel, moderated by Fordham Gabelli School Dean Donna Rapaccioli.
