Also as an investor in this round, Adrian Kolody, founder of Domination Finance, a non-custodial decentralized exchange that invested $3 million, expressed an opinion that echoed Bill Q. in an interview with this newspaper. He explained why to invest in SmartChain Defi from the perspective of traditional finance to hedge inflation by embracing WEB3. Kolody pointed to the decentralized finance (DeFi) sector as a viable option. By using the stablecoin BUSDT (Tether’s USD stablecoin issued on BNBChain) and decentralized applications (DApps), SmartChain Defi allows investors to “surpass inflation” while defending against “the risk of spot positions,” he said. To do this, they just need to find a way to earn interest on the stablecoin above the annual inflation rate. Kolody said:
“The best way to look at it is that cryptocurrencies give investors the flexibility to take control of your own finances in a variety of ways, minimizing policy risk.”
