On the other hand, he commented: „About those who say that the DeFi winter is coming, I believe that the ecosystem is actually being purified and we are in a first maturation“.
Thinking that in DeFi you can find several elements to manage finances in decentralized ways, Sejas also highlighted the contrast between different markets: „From LATAM we can see DeFi as a way to protect ourselves or save money. But in Spain they are looking at how to maximize returns.
