As the DeFi space continues to grow and evolve, it can be tempting to jump on the latest trend and invest in new projects without fully understanding the potential risks. At our DeFi-focused YouTube channel, we started discussing fundamentally sound projects such as EMP money and Drip Network, but as the DeFi market became more bullish, we were influenced by other influencers and began discussing other projects.
The Problems with Following the Crowd in the DeFi Market
Unfortunately, as the DeFi market cooled and the dust settled, it became clear that many of these projects were not as sound as they seemed. We found ourselves on a hamster wheel, continuing to put money into DeFi projects that were failing. This is a common problem in the DeFi market, as many investors fall victim to “shiny object syndrome” and are drawn to the latest trending projects without fully understanding the risks involved.
Transparency and Honesty are Key in the DeFi Space
In response to this, we made a video to address the issue and be more transparent with our DeFi-focused audience. We emphasized the potential risks and rewards of DeFi projects, but also stressed the importance of being clear and honest with our audience. We recognized our duty to be more transparent and black and white with our recommendations, as we did not want to contribute to the anger and mistrust that had developed in the DeFi community.
The Takeaway for Investing in DeFi
The DeFi market is constantly evolving and new projects are constantly being introduced. It can be tempting to jump on the latest trend in the DeFi market, but it is important to do your own research and understand the potential risks and rewards of any DeFi project you invest in. Following the crowd may lead to short-term gains, but it is important to be transparent and honest with yourself and others about the potential risks involved in the DeFi market.
