The Challenges and Potential Regulation of Decentralized Finance (DeFi)

Many believe that complete decentralization of finance is inevitable, but there are three major obstacles that must be overcome for DeFi to surpass traditional payments. Firstly, gaining consumer trust and buy-in is difficult as people may prefer to use third-party financial services. Secondly, financial institutions are hesitant to adopt DeFi due to increased fraud risk and potential revenue loss. Lastly, the lack of government oversight is a challenge as it may be difficult to enact legislation and consumer protection agencies without a centralized system. While DeFi presents challenges for regulators, some level of centralization may be necessary to prevent tax evasion and criminal activity. A balance between decentralization and centralization is needed to create a fully realized payment solution.

Governance is dead, long live TOKENS

A popular trend kicked off by the Compound Protocol in the Spring of 2020 was governance tokens for DeFi protocols. The dream of governance tokens was a beautiful ideal. Simply by using a protocol, you would automatically and freely receive ownership of it. Decision making around the protocol would be decentralized allowing thousands and ultimately millions to have their say and vote on changes to the protocol.
