The feelings around crypto investing are pretty volatile—not only can it be hard to understand but many people see it as “fake internet money.” Maybe you even feel that way! But after spending years building computers for fun and learning about DeFi, Eric Parker, the CEO of Giddy, realized that crypto could be made accessible and safe for everyone.
There have been many crypto businesses—FTX for example—who have taken advantage of the “Wild West of digital gold.” Since the laws around crypto trading are still being developed, people have taken advantage of that, and the fact that most people won’t know whether a DeFi business is ethical or not.
So, Ethan and Eric wanted to build a business that the consumer can trust. With every change or new feature they roll out, a team of lawyers is strictly following the current rules and trying to anticipate new regulations. A guiding principle for the Giddy founders is that they protect their users.
The Parker brothers’ advice for all business owners is that you define your foundational principles and stick to them. It will simplify your decision-making and, most importantly, protect your users from any unforeseen risks.
