Charlie Lee criticizes Decentralized Finance

Recently, Litecoin founder Charlie Lee criticized Decentralized Finance (DeFi) for being “just decentralization theater.” However, not everybody agreed with Lee’s comments. Some argued that Lee was just looking for an opportunity to criticize a new cryptocurrency capitalizing on an opportunity Litecoin missed. Others were quick to criticize Litecoin. 


Lee’s comments come as a result of the recent controversy surrounding the decentralized lending platform, Fulcrum. The firm was forced to freeze its contrast after an exploit resulted in a portion of the decentralized apps (dApps) Ethereum being lost.
