A few hours later, he told the American billionaire entrepreneur and investor Mark Cuban about the necessity of decentralized finance (DeFi):

“You’re overlooking the biggest risk of all. Most of the world is underbanked or not banked at all. Unlike you and me, they can’t borrow, can’t get a loan, and never even have a chance to create a better life for themselves and their family. DeFi can fix this.”
