However, the co-founder of Ethereum (ETH), Vitalik Buterin, has a bit different opinion regarding the trending topic “DeFi”.

A few hours ago, Buterin tweeted as follows, “Reminder: you do NOT have to participate in “the latest hot defi thing” to be in ethereum. In fact, unless you *really* understand what’s going on, it’s likely best to sit out or participate only with very small amounts. There are many other kinds of ETH dapps, explore them!”

EOS Plans To Unleash DeFi

Considering one of Brendan Blumer’s recent tweets, EOS is planning to join the success train of decentralized finance (DeFi).

In response to Blumer’s tweet, a user identified on Twitter as Annabella called the attention of the CTO of, Daniel Larimer, to the fact that DeFi was EOS’s idea back in 2018, but some people have already maximized the idea and trending with it.

Annabella tweeted, “Daniel Larimer, the idea of #defi on #eosio was submitted at the 2018 eosio hackathon.. before there even was “defi”… it was called @trove_io_, to think you could have been first instead. Some people are just too ahead of trends I suppose and hated for it.”

EOS Is a Better Blockchain to Build Complex and High Performing DeFi

Ran Neuner, the host of CNBC CRYPTO TRADER, called out EOS for its lethargic growth in the market when other top cryptocurrencies are experiencing tremendous price appreciation.

“Someone should tell EOS that all the other coins are running…” Neuner stated

Reacting to Neuner’s jibe, Brendan Blumer wrote, “Hype is often cyclical, but there is more real innovation building on EOS than any other ecosystem… and it is just getting started.”

In the same thread of tweets, a random crypto user challenged Blumer regarding the success recorded by DeFi on the Ethereum network:

“DeFi on ETH is booming. What is booming on EOS?”

In response to the user’s challenge, Daniel Larimer pointed out that EOS is a better blockchain for complex and high performing decentralized finance (DeFi).

Larimer tweeted, “Eos is a better stack for building complex high performance defi. Defi on eth is a hack and requires many ugly comprises to compensate for latency, gas attacks, reorganization, and lack of sorted databases.”
