Sphere DAO allows you to buy any item on any chain and pay back from any chain with any token or fiat without bridges or on-ramps. It is all powered by bringing buy-now-pay-later to Web3, with the mission of giving everyone access to credit by 2025. In this presentation, Ryan McNutt speaks on DeFi and the future of credit. He shares a personal story of how he got into DeFi and credit lending, and how that led him to create Sphere. You’ll learn about the current state of DeFi, how it got to where it is today, and how it compares to banks around the world. Ryan also speaks on why he thinks Sphere will be a DeFi leader in the future.
