‘Nuisance’ is a funny way of putting it but not inaccurate either, that being said I think in the next year things are going to get ramped up from the ‘nuisance’ level pretty quickly. The financial/defi systems being built on Ethereum are constantly improving and at this point have become pretty impressive. DEXs are fairly polished and have a lot of users, DeFi dapp UX is getting better and better, projects like Compound, Maker, etc…. As someone who’s been involved in Ethereum for a long time I’ve never been more excited by the near-term future of the platform than I am right now, specifically with regard to finance.
Even as I’ve known and been a believer in the possibilities waiting to be explored on Ethereum I still get excited, like recently I’ve been toying around with making non-Ethereum asset prices, both crypto and real world like forex, trade-able on the Ethereum chain. The more I get into it the more potential I see unlocked, beyond just achieving parity with range of things you can do with traditional finance tools, but even surpassing them.
