Chainlik co-founder and CEO, Sergey Nazarov, made statements about the future of DeFi. Chainlik co-founder Nazarov said the DeFi ecosystem could reach $ 1 trillion next year.
Sergey Nazarov made some comments about DeFi at the Etheral Summit panel.

Speaking to Decrypt about Chainlink 2.0 on April 15, Nazarov said that NFT, stablecoin and DeFi ecosystems could reach $ 500 billion in TVL this year. However, he stated that with Chainlink 2.0, smart contracts can be created that will enable the growth of the DeFi ecosystem.
