© Reuters. Coinbase Engineer Shares His Tips for Growing DeFi 100x
  • Coinbase’s former Senior Engineer shares his advice to the DeFi Industry against the traditional financial systems.
  • His estimates are that global e-commerce firms made $2.2 trillion last year while NFT makers made just $3.9 billion.
  • The functions of DeFi include peer-to-peer lending and stablecoin issuance.

Blake West was a senior engineer for Coinbase. He shares some tips that may help the Decentralized Financial Industry (DeFi), compete better against traditional financial systems.

He did this via a 12-paragraph Twitter (NYSE:) thread on June 9, 2022, in which he started by posing a question: “Want DeFi to grow 100x from here? The answer is to be boring!”

West believes that deferred speculative activity in NFTs and crypto is great, but it would be detrimental to the industry. According to West, the DeFi business needs move from speculations towards the mundane financial activities of legacy industries.

He said that DeFi would be a formidable opponent if it solved financial problems faster.
