What’s DeFi 2.0? Why is There so Much Excitement?

  • Scalability — Users expect seamless services regardless of active participants in a platform; unfortunately, DeFi 1.0 suffers from inadequate scalability. Most platforms are unable to keep up with the growing number, leading to poor services. High gas fees and long waiting times dampen user experience, hurting DeFi adoption.
  • Liquidity — It serves as the driving force for every market. Without liquidity, markets would naturally die out. For DeFi 1.0, liquidity remains low due to adoption constraints and participant apathy. Most DeFi participants are partially invested due to drawbacks such as scalability issues and inadequate liquidity. This creates a vicious cycle that stifles DeFi growth.
  • Centralization­ ­– Most DeFi 1.0 applications are still centralized despite their ‘decentralized’ claim.
