What is Decentralized Finance (DeFi) & Blockchain Techonolgy?

Empowerment Through Education

Decentralized Finance (DeFi) harnesses the transformative power of blockchain technology to reshape traditional financial systems. DeFi eliminates intermediaries, enabling direct control over assets through secure, transparent processes. This innovative system exemplifies the core principles of blockchain: decentralization, security, and privacy.

Educational Focus on Blockchain and Emerging Technologies:

  • Blockchain as the Foundation: At the heart of DeFi is blockchain technology, which ensures that each transaction is recorded on a secure, immutable ledger. This not only enhances transparency but also increases trust among users.
  • Emerging Technologies in Finance: DeFi introduces advanced technologies such as smart contracts, which automate transactions and enforce agreements without human intervention. Our curriculum explores these technologies, providing you with a deep understanding of how they contribute to the evolving financial landscape.

Key Features of DeFi Education at Decentralized Masters:

  • Global Peer-to-Peer Transactions: Learn how DeFi facilitates immediate, cross-border transactions with reduced fees, showcasing the practical benefits of blockchain technology.
  • Ownership,Control and Privacy: Understand how digital wallets and cryptographic keys allow individuals to manage their assets independently, reinforcing the concept of personal asset sovereignty.
  • Governance Participation: Dive into how DeFi platforms empower users to participate in governance decisions, influencing the direction and operation of financial protocols.

Explore the future of finance with Decentralized Masters, where our collective expertise offers unparalleled knowledge and prepares you for the evolving world of decentralized technologies.

Sam - The DeFi Doctor

Head of Education

Sam is affectionately known to all at Decentralized Masters as "Doc".

And for good reason- among his many accomplishments, he has a medical degree, and was accepted into a surgery program.

While fans of Grey's Anatomy could be forgiven for believing medical school is a full-time job, Sam found time to begin his DeFi and fintech journey while completing his Masters of Medicine, and became fully certified in a number of different blockchain-related fields.

And somewhere along the way, Sam managed to acquire a grounding in business economics!

This unusual background combining care for others, a fascination with technology, plus hard-headed business sense have brought Sam success both as an educator and an entrepreneur.

His crowning glory isn't found in the annals of medical journals but in the resurrection of a once-dying Private Career College. Through two years of relentless toil, Sam breathed life into this failing business, transforming it into a thriving health care academy with 11 robust programs, now valued in the seven figures —a testament to his hard work and zeal for success.

Sam's published work on blockchain has brought him a global reputation. As the Head of Education at Decentralized Masters, Sam has become the beacon for the perplexed, demystifying the labyrinth of DeFi and guiding many to their first taste of success.

From the penetration of blockchain technology into every sector, to the multiple advantages that the use of digital assets and decentralized finance gives users, I'm more convinced than ever that we are at the cusp of mass adoption.

Rob got his start in crypto in 2013 mining dogecoin on his laptop while at Portland State University .

This naturally led to a graduate degree in blockchain and business, culminating in his selection for a prestigious Fellowship with the Global Blockchain Business Council.

From 2014 to 2017, he volunteered to help develop a small altcoin, ultimately growing the value of the coin fifty-fold.

Since then he has been advising a startup working on a blockchain solution to proof of provenance for digital audio files.

He's also an active user of DeFi, and has already granted himself the power to "be his own bank"- a power we at Decentralized Masters want for everyone.

And when he's not banking on the blockchain, Rob is a gifted musician who has produced five albums of his own music- and plays Irish Traditional Flute in a pub band in Portland, Oregon.

Rob is totally committed to DeFi, and sees it as the only future for finance and banking: "The level of efficiency DeFi brings to existing financial services is so extraordinary that it is inevitable that the Invisible Hand will move more activity to the ecosystem."

Initially, Preston was amazed by blockchain technology, and the idea that it gave humans a chance to interact with finance in a way not previously available. Preston enjoyed his time exploring Bitcoin and all things blockchain, but in 2015 however, Preston enlisted in the US Army as an Intelligence Analyst.

Preston would go on to spend ~7 years in active duty military, achieving the distinguished rank of Staff Sergeant (E-6) before being honorably discharged a decorated combat veteran in 2022.

Similar to the Decentralized Masters vision, Preston was demystifying and democratizing access to Crypto and DeFi Intelligence, but for historically underserved communities within the US Military.

At Saidler, Preston was directly in charge of leading research efforts within digital assets, to help the portfolio manager make investment decisions within Crypto. The portfolio had an outstanding return of over 47% during Preston's tenure, and would go on to publish weekly research articles that would help retail traders make educated investments within digital assets. After 7 months, Preston left Saidler to help build Crypto Indices at CoinDesk.

At CoinDesk, Preston served as the Lead Crypto Index Analyst, and helped build novel Crypto Indices. Preston led a small team of researchers and data engineers to build an AI-led data pipeline, ultimately powering data point ingestion and analysis that now powers the world's largest Crypto Index Products valued at over $50M.
