The decentralized finance (DeFi) segment may become a threat to the stability of the financial market. These conclusions were made by the experts of the US Federal Reserve.
Representatives of the regulator believe that DeFi can become a threat to financial stability against the backdrop of growing capitalization of the digital asset market.
