DeFi Seminar

By Graduate Students, For Graduate Students


The UCSB-ECON DeFi Seminar is a graduate-student-led seminar series sponsored by Uniswap, which takes place virtually (over Zoom) every Friday at 9:30 am PST.


We host researchers from around the world who share their research in decentralized finance and cryptoeconomics. Their research addresses the economic, societal, and/or technical questions that are raised in web3, where the internet is not only a network for exchanging information but also a network for exchanging value.

The DeFi Seminar is hosted in conjunction with the Department of Economics at UC Santa Barbara.
