Will DeFi Recover?

DeFi Asset Prices Enter Downward Trend

There are a few key metrics to consider when quantifying the DeFi space. Looking at the DeFi Futures chart from FTX, we can see that DeFi tokens prices have been significantly dropping. The DeFi Futures is a basket of eleven DeFi coins which includes KNC, LEND, and MKR

Total Value Locked Tells A Different Story

Total Value Locked (TVL) is an important data point to consider. TVL is a measure of the total value of assets held within DeFi-related smart contracts. That is, the value of all assets currently under stake or being farmed for yields.

How DeFi Will Evolve

To date, decentralized finance has imported only the most basic legacy banking products and services. Lending, borrowing, and earning interest are relatively simple functions to create on smart contracts. But this is merely scraping the surface of what is possible, as CoinGecko’s Bobby Ong describes it.

One Blockchain to Rule them All

Several projects are currently vying for DeFi superiority. Ethereum 2.0 promises to be able to handle the workload but seems to suffer constant delays. EOS should be able to offer the required throughput but it cannot seem to garner interest from crypto enthusiasts.
