Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

DeFi has evolved from a largely insular system solely for agents that want to be exposed to crypto risk returns to a system that is now looking at the financing of real assets. However, given the recent spectacular failure of FTX and the prosecution of Binance, corporate entities are reticent to use DeFi. Corporates are aware of the potential benefits but are nervous about the risks and the fact that established risk management models do not exist. The objective of this Special Issue would be to identify the best practice in DeFi risk management, both applied and theoretical. A range of authors covering this area have been identified. I suggest that it would be of interest to readers of the journal as it comes under the heading of risk management with digital assets.
