Join David for a conversation with David and Đorđe from Tempus Finance. Tempus is building the DeFi native version of interest rate swaps powered by an Automated Market Maker (AMM). It is a protocol used for risk reallocation between different market participants who are exposed to the same assets.

In traditional finance, interest rate swaps are highly customised, non-collateralised and made between a counter party and the bank. In DeFi, non collateralised interest rate swaps haven't been achievable because you need to know who the counter party is. Tempus is solving this problem.

Everyone interacts with interest rate swaps in TradFi in some form or another. For example, in a fixed-rate mortgage there are interest rate swaps between your bank and its counter-parties. Since their mainstream adoption in the 1970s, interest rate swaps have grown to be the largest kind of derivative in TradFi. Judging from this market evolution, as the DeFi market matures, Tempus is well positioned to capture the market demand.
