DeFi Indonesia is a community to foster #Decentralized Finance movement in Indonesia. This community is committed to DeFi / Open Finance education and knowledge sharing in Indonesia local community, serving 264 million people. It also encourages and promotes DeFi usage and development throughout collaboration. We are challenging to current DeFi community problems that most of DeFi activities and developments centered around developed countries such as the US and Western Europe whereas low visibility and exposure in developing countries. One of the core values of DeFi is it’s permission-less entry where anyone even those who cannot access to traditional finance can interact and enjoy the power of finance. This situation is relatively more severe in emerging countries. For example, in Indonesia there are still 66% of the population are under-served to banking access. Currently main challenges in Indonesia is that very little people know DeFi in Indonesia. Thus we as a DeFi Indonesia would like to drive awareness of DeFi in wider Indonesian local community. ■ Objectives Spreading awareness of DeFi to a wider community Facilitating collaboration and development of DeFi Growing together for nurturing a helpful community  ■ Our Activity #DeFi Indonesia consists of mainly three activities 1. Event and conference  Event and conference is an offline grassroots movement strongly aligned with the aforementioned purpose.
