DeFiance Capital is a leading DeFi-focused investment fund in Asia. Launched by Arthur Cheong (Arthur0x), it took part in the funding rounds of almost every top-tier decentralized finance protocol. Its expert, Wangarian (@0xWangarian), unveils one more unexpected catalyst for Ethereum (ETH) in September.
$90 billion may flow to Ethereum, here's how
According to the latest tweet by Mr. Wangarian, surprisingly, Cardano (ADA) smart contracts launch may be the most bullish catalyst for all major Layer 1 platforms, including Ethereum (ETH).
Cardano's smart contract launch could be the most bullish catalyst for live alt L1s as retail is confronted with the fact that Cardano simply doesn't work.
Think longing every L1 (including ETH) would do well. There's $90b of capital sitting in that thing.— Wangarian (🎩,🎩) (@0xWangarian) September 4, 2021
L1s (only "live" platforms) could explode once retail investors invested in Cardano (ADA) find that its overhyped smart contract ecosystem does not work, claims DeFiance Capital's partner.
As such, their capital may flow to other "native" blockchains, with Ethereum (ETH) as the most obvious example. As Cardano (ADA) capitalization sits at the eye-watering level of $96.1 billion by press time, L1s may witness a gargantuan inflow of liquidity.
Right now, Cardano (ADA) is surpassed only by Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) by market capitalization. Its nearest rival, Binance Coin (BNB), has $76 billion in market capitalization.
Cardano (ADA) criticism is on fire
After issues with the testnet launch of Cardano (ADA) smart contracts, the largest PoS blockchain was immediately attacked by Ethereum (ETH) maximalists.
Many commentators stressed the fact that Cardano's (ADA) EUTXO model can handle sophisticated economic scenarios.
As covered by U.Today earlier today, some early Cardano-based applications collapsed while stress testing its smart contracts. But IOG CEO Charles Hoskinson addressed all accusations as "noise and fud."
