Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin encourages users to explore numerous ETH-based dapps instead of rushing for "the latest hot DeFi thing."
As an example of a dapp worth trying, he named a game called Dark Forest.
DeFi is not all Ethereum has got, Vitalik reminds followers
Buterin has again reminded the community that there is much more to Ethereum than just DeFi.
Previously, Buterin shared his view of the new crypto "craze," stating that all flashy things, including DeFi, are exciting stuff but short-lived.
As for "yield farming," back in July he expressed doubts that percentage rates offered to yield farmers (who make profits by lending their crypto through other projects) are higher than those offered by banks or conventional investment funds in the long run.
"Have not done any yield farming at all"
The Ethereum co-creator tweeted that he himself had never done any yield farming. All he did was to keep some of his coins in Uniswap, having put them there a long time ago, and then he just earns a little on fees, according to his tweet.
Overall, he warned against participating in yield farming on any dapps unless it is for very small amounts of crypto.
Ethereum hits $427 thanks to DeFi
DappRadar analysts believe that this was a major factor (along with the overall DeFi expansion) that pushed the second most popular crypto coin to a new high of $427 per coin.
