Still remembering Do Kwon? On March 14, 2022, exactly 1 year ago, Twitter KOL - GCR made a $10 million bet with Do Kwon on the $LUNA's price, betting $LUNA would be less than $1 today. What a year!

While Terra is now trading $0.0001, Do Kwon has been right about one thing: Decentralized Finance DO needs Decentralized Money.

With the current turmoil in the traditional banking industry and the increasing hostility to cryptocurrencies from governments, the crypto industry is heading to a situation where no centralized stablecoins are 100% safe and the industry is losing its traditional banking partners which handled the fiat on/off ramp in the past.

The industry has been relying too much on centralized stablecoins, $USDC and $USDT are the settlement currency of crypto trading, major lending and borrowing assets, and collateral of other "decentralized" stablecoins. They have become the single point of failure of the whole DeFi ecosystem.

Now it is a turning point. Should the industry continue this path where"Decentralized" Finance relies on centralized stablecoin?
