Crypto appears to be at this pivotal point in modern finance where it wants to break out but can’t because of lack of trust and self-regulation.
With the advent of retail investors clamoring for “defi” it definitely leaves a sour taste seeing all the rugpulls that happen day in and day out.
We trust the platforms uniswap, pancakeswap, spooky, padswap etc but we find it hard to trust some of the projects trading within it.
So why continue investing in shit tokens and keep gambling for that miracle 0.0001% of a moon?
So, why wouldn’t you invest in the actual platform that sells the shovels (dex) and become the bank (provide LP) instead?
It’s a much safer play especially during the bear.
I have staked money at the padswap farms by providing liquidity and I am earning about 8-10% apr. I feel confident doing so because any projects listed on this dex has donated their liquidity pool for investors to farm. In other words, dev teams can’t just take the liquidity and pull the rug under you.
So while others continue buying and losing, I’m sitting comfy watching my farms grow in value while staying rug-free.
