Novum Launches HYFI Conference That Showcases Synergies Between Traditional and Decentralized Finance

Press releases, News

The Novum Group is pleased to announce the inaugural launch of HYFI Conference 2023, due to take place in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, on 20th April 2023. Vietnam is a natural choice for this year’s HYFI Conference as it is the hotbed for many successful Web3 and DeFi start-ups. In addition, numerous reports mentioned Vietnam as the first country in rank for crypto adoption. 

HYFI stems from a synergy of two words – “Hybrid Finance.” HYFI is where traditional finance meets decentralized finance – TradFi + DeFi. TradFi has been around since the beginning of time and hence, would offer much knowledge to participants in the DeFi space. Through HYFI Conference, participants will gain valuable insights from each side of the divide. 

Christopher Low, Chairman of The Novum Group, said, “DeFi has grown exponentially in the last couple of years due to the advent of blockchain. As a result, traditional finance will inevitably converge with DeFi to create a strong synergy. We believe that only when such synergies are achieved can mass adoption of decentralized technologies occur.” 

This year’s HYFI Conference will also feature a quality selection of start-ups seeking venture investments. In addition, start-ups will have the opportunity to pitch their business ideas during the HYFI conference. HYFI 2023 aims to bring together 500+ participants to share knowledge and create synergies among them.
