đź’­ Executive Perspective: Benzinga spoke with Oliver Yates, the CEO and co-founder of Aplo, an EU-licensed broker to institutional investors.

We asked for his thoughts on the Terra-apocalypse. He said this:

Half of Terra was premiums from loans due to the protocol. The other half was a gift from the foundation itself. That’s unsustainable.

At the end of the day, there’s no free lunch. Crypto is no different.

There’s no free 20% return. If you’re lending, you can potentially make 10% but there’s default risk.

You’ve got to ask the right questions. Does the yield come from anywhere apart from inflation?
