Mr. Hoover indicates the category of users that will be too impatient to use "centralized finances" instruments in the near future.

Is patience a virtue?

According to the statement shared by Mr. Hoover on his Twitter account, cryptocurrency users will not have enough patience to interact with classic financial institutions.

People that grow up using DeFi won’t have patience for CeFi

In particular, those who have "grown up" in the decentralized finance (DeFi) era will have a hard time using CeFi tools.

The entrepreneur and investor described his recent experience with a mortgage application. Mr. Hoover recalls that it took several hours and numerous human interactions to submit all of the necessary documents.

The Web3 world will not need such cumbersome and resource-inefficient procedures, Mr. Hoover foresees:

All of that friction goes away once everything's on-chain.

DeFi is stealing CeFi's thunder at an increased pace

Susa Ventures' Leo Polovets adds that the number of "impatient" users irritated by CeFi bottlenecks will be far more impressive:

I grew up on CeFi and already don't have much patience for it.

As covered by U.Today previously, after a minor drawback, the total value of assets locked in various DeFi protocols printed another historic high.

DeFi "degens" injected $210 billion in different assets into mainstream protocols, according to on-chain data analysis. Curve, Aave and MakerDAO led the way of this upsurge.
