Anndy Lian believes DeFi will also result in more and more bitcoins being locked up, “which will bring another bull market for bitcoin.”

‘If DeFi Collapsed, Bitcoin Would Still Be Bitcoin’

Bitcoin boosts DeFi

“According to the data released today (the second day of Uniswap Liquidity Mining), 50% of the miners used the wBTC/ETH pair in the initial mining, and most of them are big whales.”

“Bitcoin will influence DeFi but it is not the core driver. The core driver is the powerful use case,” he said.

DeFi boosts BTC

“It will [boost bitcoin] but not yet. DeFi is still underground with only the core early adopters ‘getting it’,” he said.

Mutual aid, not mutual interdependence

“Bitcoin has seen massive growth over the past decade and will certainly continue its momentum,” he told “If DeFi collapsed, Bitcoin would still be Bitcoin and continue its growth and adoption.”

The future: parallel, not pivotal

“BTC is money, DeFi is banks, that’s how people should think about it. The linkage is parallel not pivotal,” argued Chambers.

“But personally I do hope to see new players coming into challenge Bitcoin’s supremacy,” he said. “With challenges, there are improvements. This is what’s lacking in today’s crypto space.”
