The whole segment is going to witness the "biggest tests" and most painful moments once the prices turn deep red.

According to leading DeFi analysis dashboard Defipulse, more than $65 billion are locked in multiple DeFi applications as of today. That means that the net TVL of the segment more than quadrupled in the last four months.

The segment of digital collectibles or non-fungible tokens (NFTs) should also get prepared for some sensitive moments. The way its liquidity will "dry up" will shock people with a "limited perspective."

Mixed prospects for DeFis and NFTs

Chris Burniske is far from being lonely in his forecasts about DeFis and NFTs. As covered by U.Today previously, iconic investor Naval Ravikant shared his mixed feelings about NFTs.
