Where do interesting crypto conversations take place? Twitter. Yes, Crypto Twitter is a thing and decentralized finance (DeFi) is a hot topic.
Between dank memes and debates, Crypto Twitter is eager to get the ball rolling on transforming old financial products into "trustless" and "transparent" programs.
DeFi is a future that puts people in control as it may provide a more just financial system without the interference of middlemen.
And until this future is fully materialized, people who want to make it work will keep building on the technology while venting out frustrations and revelations on Twitter.
