The Composers: Episode #3 - Solrise Finance & Civic Technologies

Welcome to The Composers, Serum's podcast series based on our weekly Twitter Spaces. Who is composing with Serum to deliver the next generation of decentralized finance (DeFi) services? This week, we're joined by the Solrise Finance team and their partner, Civic Technologies. Solrise Finance is decentralized fund management and investment protocol on Solana which leverages Serum. Recently, they launched their Solrise DEX Pro, the first permissioned Serum DEX. Civic provides the KYC solution necessary to address the counterparty identity issue that otherwise prevents institutions with appetite for DeFi from participating in markets like Serum's! We had much to cover in this episode, as DeFi and permissioned may sound jarring to some! This is not an arbitrary move: the Solrise and Civic teams explain the method to their madness and why a solution like Solrise DEX Pro is necessary for institutional volume, a critical growth driver for DeFi, to emerge.
