Professor Yaodong Yang, chief scientist of QuarkChain, participated in a roundtable discussion on the topic of “DeFi is hot on Ethereum, how do other public chains can defeat it?” Professor Yang said that the real innovation of DeFi has not yet begun. DeFi’s biggest original intention is to let people enjoy the bank services without bank accounts. The encryption industry is big, and it won’t be an oligopoly. DEX requires a lot of innovation. If the impermanence loss problem cannot get solved, DEX cannot become bigger.
