Alexel, Interlay Founder, about the safety:

Twitter avatar for @alexeiZamyatinAlexei Zamyatin @alexeiZamyatinWe spoke to so, so many VCs over the last 3 years. I got the "who cares about decentralization" lecture 8/10 times (we didn't align with those, naturally). UX is very important, but so is safety. Twitter avatar for @QwQiaoQiao Wang (�, �) @QwQiaoIn 2014 I lost BTC on MtGox and became a decentralization maxi since then. Folks who showed up years later told me users care about convenience not decentralization. Hope they’ve change their mind. Don’t push the “nobody cares about decentralization” narrative ever again.12:46 PM ∙ Nov 12, 202233Likes4Retweets
