Dear SelfKey Astronauts,

DeFi has had a huge impact on the crypto space. However, the DeFi ecosystem is still on the path to maturity.

The current phase of the DeFi ecosystem can be compared to the early stages of cryptocurrency exchanges when there was no definitive regulatory framework in place for these exchanges. However, that is not the case at present, as most of these exchanges have a regulatory compliant framework in place to perform their operations smoothly.

It would be detrimental in terms of user-privacy for the DeFi platforms to follow the exact same path of the centralized exchanges to be regulatory compliant.

However, DeFi platforms might need to eventually evolve and come up with a framework that is compliant with the KYC/AML regulations, and at the same time, protect the privacy of their users.

This article details a similar opinion about DeFi, from the acting U.S currency comptroller. A few months ago this would have been unthinkable – a major US regulator describing DeFi as inevitably going mainstream!

In the weeks ahead, SelfKey will have an impressive announcement in this area – as we believe in self-sovereign identity, empowering defi, and maintaining compliance with regulations globally.
