No, DeFi and ICOs Are Not The Same Thing

DeFi vs. ICOs And Skepticism Surrounding Ethereum

ICOs were really only ever seen as one thing: an investment opportunity. A decentralized fundraising campaign, with the emphasis never really being on the “project” behind the token. Indeed, some of the hype was warranted. But at the end of the day, most of them never sold a real, usable product.

Why Nobody Knows What Will Happen

Regardless of whether you’re glass-half-full or half-empty on DeFi, it’s hard not to compare the two. Both are closely tied to ethereum, as well as to improving ethereum. But this type of thinking is fallacious. To assume that they are the same and will meet the same end because of their similarities just isn’t enough proof. Not to mention, there are a decent amount of differences that are being left out of this conversation that should not be ignored.
