Actually the market will get excited with any new acronym, like ICO, DEX, IEO…and now DeFi as long as it gives them an excuse to profit from speculation.
It’s not necessarily a scam or a bad thing in itself, it’s just possibilities of what decentralised blockchain technology can offer, but nobody actually cares.
Usually the questions go like this:
Wow, from 1 to 100 in 1 day? Am I still in time to catch the wave? How much have you earn profited? Why didn’t you share this thing with me earlier? Which is the similar stuff I can buy in now?
And not like this:
How does it operate? How does the economics work? What are the potential risks? What are the weaknesses? Where can I learn more about it?
So, there you go.
