Matthias Schaible recently graduated from the M.Sc. International Finance programme at the Department of Business and Economics of the HWR Berlin. His master thesis tackles the new challenging world of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) explaining the different protocol layers comprising the DeFi architecture, the different applications of collateralised lending (e.g. leverage), the mechanisms of interest rate determination and the liquidation mechanisms.

Upon receiving an excellent grade, his supervisor Prof. Dr. Natalie Packham recommended that his thesis be published by the renowned publisher Springer in the series “BestMasters”. With “BestMasters”, Springer honours the best Master's theses written at renowned universities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Schaible’s thesis is now available as an ebook.
