Bubble, frost in 2020, the prospects for DeFi in 2021
The summer of 2020 was marked by an explosion in DeFi with many analysts calling the boom a bubble that will eventually burst. The winter froze the growth of DeFi which then slowly resumed.
Ethereum encountered many difficulties, struggling to support the weight of a DeFi that had even eclipsed Bitcoin during the summer of 2020. Users had to contend with network congestion and the explosion of gas.
Cryptophyls expect the price of Bitcoin (BTC) in 2021, expecting the BTC hits 6 digits by the end of the year. TheEther should also experience strong growth at the same time.
DeFi for its part will have to face the relative challenges in terms of strengthening the security of its protocols against hacks.
The shift ofEthereum From Proof of Work to Proof of Stake could theoretically solve scalability problems, but questions remain as to a decrease in the level of network security with the abandonment of mining in favor of staking.
Ethereum’s competitors, like Polkadot (DOT), in the DeFi race, are also expected to make major strides in 2021. Vitalik Buterin will be sure to champion the future benefits of ETH2 and inform (or reassure ) on the progress of its effective deployment. Your pen will meet you in its weekly analyzes of the price of Ether and the evolution of the network, throughout this year.
