Rust believes that the current uneasy relationship between TradFi and decentralized finance, or DeFi, will continue to be stable. He wrote that “Over the long-term, there will be an entirely new on and offramp between DeFi and crypto, as trust has certainly been broken in centralized, controlled institutions.” “There’s no need to keep your money in one bank or one central entity. That entity holds custody of all your assets. Who knows what could happen to your savings and your assets.”
