Daniele Sesta is no stranger to crypto users, especially those seeking to learn new trends and engage in innovative conversations. Sesta is the crypto expert who bombards Twitter with a variety of messages and engages in heavy discussion at all hours of the day.

Those who follow him closely would observe the picture of a frog sitting as the profile picture of his LinkedIn page. Although that might seem weird, it’s no surprise seeing that Sesta loves to dare the unimaginable and is a notorious creative. 

Sesta has several crypto projects to his name and is the founder of wildly popular cryptocurrency ventures such as Wonderland, Popsicle Finance, and Abracadabra. Each of his projects has been met with success, and one can only speculate that Sesta is creating Defi 2.0.

Sesta is developing an entire ecosystem where all of his projects can be used among each other which are also being built across multiple chains, not just AVAX.

Sesta has been in the space

Sesta has a long history in the blockchain business. He has stated in various interviews that he began using Bitcoin in 2011. Much is not known about his personal life, but his expertise speaks volumes. His project Zulu Republic made an impact in the industry in 2018. Daniele claims to speak Italian, Spanish, and English on his LinkedIn profile, although the general consensus is that he is Italian

His Previous Work

Zulu Republic was designed as a digital platform ecosystem based on the Ethereum blockchain, focused on and inspired by the belief that autonomous partnership is the human protocol of the future.  With an emphasis on unrivalled user experience, Zulu’s objective was to make it easier for people to join the cryptocurrency revolution, empowering them to take control of their own financial lives.


Sesta’s recent projects Popsicle Finance, Abracadabra, Wonderland, mirror his ambition to spearhead a new type of revolution. While his popularity is still soaring, Sesta is not shy to identify himself with all of his projects rather than hide behind the veil in case things go south. 

Sesta experienced a setback this year but was able to get back on his feet, dragging his reputation with him. The platform Popsicle Finance was hacked for tokens valued at more than $25,000,000 at the beginning of August 2021. This was a major hack, and the price of the $ICE token plummeted as a result.  Rather than hiding, Sesta worked hard to solve the problem, and the stolen tokens were funded and returned to the owners who lost money as a result of the attack.

It’s also worth noting that Popsicle Finance, like most other Defi businesses, was audited, implying that what occurred to Popsicle Finance could happen to any other project in the market.

Defi 2.0 Projects, the Next Big Thing

DeFi is going to be the next big thing in the crypto world. Defi’s total market capitalization is well over $150 billion, and the space is only scratching the surface. This year, a lot of that value grew as more people realized how decentralized apps might deliver the ideal blend of yield and efficiency. The amount of money going into these Defi applications is mind-boggling.

Projects building on Defi 2.0 ( second generation Defi protocols) are definitely going to take the industry by storm, and two of Sesta’s projects, Abracadabra and Popsicle Finance, are listed as some of the top Defi 2.0 projects in the space.
