Addressing The Crypto & DeFi Landscape With The DeFi Investor🔎

Crypto hasn’t always had the ability to maintain it’s landscape for anything longer than 24 hours.

Thanks to the brilliant minds like The DeFi Investor, staying up to date with in-depth analysis of innovative DeFi projects & market updates has never been easier.

We decided to pick his brain one step further👇

Russian DeFi: Welcome DeFi Investor, Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to talk to us about the crypto & DeFi Landscape!

Firstly let's give an introduction to our audience about what you do & how you came into crypto!

The DeFi Investor: I joined crypto ≈2years ago, right before the last wave of the 2021 bull run. At first, like most people, I entered this space only to make money, but over time I fell in love with it and now I'm full-time in crypto. Before that, I was mainly providing marketing services and I also used to actively trade stocks.

Russian DeFi: DeFi has considerably changed from when we both first came across it, what would you say is the most significant change we have seen from dApps in your eyes?

The DeFi Investor: I think that the most progress has been made on the UX side in the past 2 years. We are finally starting to see the first DeFi apps that offer a truly CEX-like user experience without sacrificing decentralization.

Russian DeFi: I certainly agree, many dApps are realizing that to scale users they need to have much simpler interfaces.

In the past few weeks Base has been a talking point, what are your thoughts on the L2 wars?

The DeFi Investor: I believe that in the long term, only a very few of the current L2s will manage to remain relevant. But all this competition between L2s is ultimately great for Ethereum, as it accelerates the development of these scaling solutions, which still need to be improved and more decentralized.

Russian DeFi: That helps put into perspective how much value is in and around Ethereum which can’t be denied!

Talking a bit about your newsletter, what is the driving force keeping you consistent with content creation?

The DeFi Investor: I found that sharing thoughts on a regular basis about certain topics that I'm interested in helps me to better understand them and ultimately make better trading and investing decisions.

Russian DeFi: It gives a sense of mental clarity which is something I have noticed more recently.

Talking about content, you recently made a list of things to study when the market is dull, why do you think it's vital to stay engaged during dead market conditions?

The DeFi Investor: The reason is that this space is moving too fast. If you're taking a 3-months break from crypto and then trying to catch up, you'll probably realize that it's much harder to do that than you initially thought.

Russian DeFi: Taking breaks from crypto is a death wish as you may come back to a surprise. Surprises aren’t rare and crypto recently got one with the Grayscale & SEC situation, how would you describe your thesis for the final quarter of the year?

The DeFi Investor: In my opinion, BTC will remain in the $20K-$45K range for the rest of this year. I see 2023 as an accumulation year and a great opportunity to refine your trading & investing skills before the retail investors start to slowly return in the 2nd half of 2024.

Russian DeFi: Right we heard it here first, bull run 2024. It's hard to say we haven’t seen some movement this year with certain narratives like memecoins but Friend Tech is the latest crypto talking point.

How can decentralized social networks break the barriers of Web 2 platforms?

The DeFi Investor: I'd say that decentralized social networks still have a long way to go and it's too early to answer this question. My prediction is that no decentralized social network will surpass Twitter (X) in popularity in the next 5 years. But I'd love to be wrong.

Russian DeFi: Finally, we end ALL of our RR Inisghts by asking our guests, if there was one thing you could be remembered for in the crypto space what would it be for?

The DeFi Investor: That's an interesting question. I'd love to know that my content truly has a positive impact on people who are new to the space and are looking to understand how this crypto thing really works.

I'm trying to provide value through every tweet I make and not just post useless recycled content for engagement farming. I'd probably like the most to be remembered for the narrative trading insights and strategies that I shared, especially in the newsletter.
