Bridging real world capital with the new decentralized economy Bridging real world capital with the new decentralized economy

The world is witnessing a fast transformation into a more sustainable, decentralized economy based on blockchain. However, the transformation is far from complete when adoption and use cases are starting to develop.

Today, traditional centralized financial markets dwarf that of blockchain. Public equity trading is in its golden era. The global stock market is valued at $95 trillion while the entire crypto market cap is only about $2 trillion.

With the proliferation of mobile devices and IoT, fintech startups have democratized investments for the masses putting financial instruments in the palms of their users. However, most fintech companies provide services that still rely on central authorities and legacy practices, with all the inefficiencies and the barriers of entry that come along.
Blockchain solves these inefficiencies by bringing a permissionless, global, and truly decentralized model into the industry.
‌Decentralized Finance (DeFi) aims to replicate the financial services of traditional finance without the need or control of a central authority, allowing anyone with a mobile device and an internet connection to have access to these tools, anytime, anywhere.
Many blockchain projects are promising DeFi replacements to traditional financial solutions. However, the results so far are modest given the limited adoption and insufficient infrastructure. Most of these projects remain without a factual user base or use cases. The problem is that these solutions are often too complicated for an average user to understand and use given the familiarity of users with legacy applications and models.
Unlocking the potential of DeFi on blockchain needs mass adoption on a global scale. This means the industry needs to expand both at the infrastructure level and marketcap.
Transitioning into the new truly decentralized economy requires replicating trillions of capital into blockchain and providing the infrastructure to support it. If only 1% of stocks are locked in DeFi, over $950 billion in capitalization could be added to the crypto markets.

Zamzam wants to help shape a new era of finance by building a hybrid DeFi-CeFi ecosystem that bridges capital and users from today's centralized economies to tomorrow's decentralized future.
