He has added that recent events such as the collapses of Terra, Celsius and others have undermined confidence in digital currencies and DeFi.

According to Christensen:

"Physical retaliation against the cryptocurrency sector can occur without warning and without the possibility of recovery, even for innocent and law-abiding users."

According to him, this violates the basic assumptions underlying the risk-weighted asset assessment (RWA) for securing the DAI stablecoin and makes the "authoritarian threat" very serious.
