Can DeFi Survive? AAVE & MakerDAO Liquidate Millions

DeFi has survived another 45 percent plunge, a stress test that would be catastrophic for other markets. Robin Schmidt and Camila Russo of The Defiant join Raoul Pal, CEO and Co-Founder of Real Vision, to discuss DeFi’s resilience and how communities affect crypto. During the past week, Maker liquidated $118.8 million, Aave another $61.13 million.

But Crypto Twitter prevented MakerDAO from liquidating $600 million of Ethereum over the weekend by alerting a leveraged borrower to top up his vault. The community played a positive role in this instance, but that’s not always the case. Robin, Camila, and Raoul also discuss “toxic maximalism” and how it’s detrimental to onboarding more users to the network in a far-ranging and fascinating conversation. Recorded on January 26, 2022.
