If you miss the early years of the internet you better cherish tf out of DeFi right now as it won’t last forever.
If you have a bit of nostalgia for early internet before it got whored out to govs and corporations, where there were no boomers/facebook Karens and influencers, just nerds on websites with absolute atrocious design if any and degen forums you better realize this is the short lived state that defi is going through right now but you can bet it won't last.
The fact that only a handful of regulators understand the extent of defi gives it still some room of absolutely unregulated freedom. Regulators are going after ICOs not even realizing IDOs, IFOs and all other non-KYC ways of bringing investors to a market start popping up. Enjoy those as it might not last forever that you'll be able to invest in a project based solely on your own risk tolerance. Sooner or later SEC or something else will come to protect you as an investor and guarantee you can only participate in approved offerings.
Doesn't matter what projects you choose, but do cherish the freedom of choice and digital movement you are enjoying right now.
