4. Yearn.finance (YFI) founder Andre Cronje wrote an article that it has failed more in the encryption field than it has succeeded. But he is providing development ideas for developers, rather than serving speculators. It said that tokens are not stocks. In the DeFi field, tokens are a coordination mechanism. These tokens are owned because they want to be contributors, not bystanders. The token is designed for a specific system, the price is not important, just pay attention to 1=1. It does not matter whether the transaction price of the token in the external system is $1 or $0.01. People confuse price with features, and LBI is a good example. The drop in LBI prices is regarded as a “failed project”. But this is not the case, he is still working hard to make it part of the yearn brand. Andre Cronje pointed out at the end that DeFi has more things to build than 3 months ago, but he cannot complete these constructions on his own, and needs help from the team to turn it into a mature product. He will continue to build, and some products will end in failure. But even if it fails, the value of trying is greater than what all critics think. According to previous reports from Chain Wen, Andre Cronje previously issued the token LBI to eliminate arbitrage losses and generate transaction fees. According to Uniswap data, the price of LBI once rose to more than $0.07, and its price plummeted by nearly 94% from its highest point to $0.0044.
