DeFi continues to take a beating

According to details of the DeFi market, most platforms carrying out smart contracts in the sector are presently up by less than 1%. The token economy has also beat, registering a value of $296 billion. Although smart contracts assets have been seeing a slight increase, there has been nothing to write home about the market generally. With the entire figure at a little below $50 billion, the highest donor to this figure is Ethereum, with more than $30 billion locked across the protocols.

Aside from Ethereum, Tron is slightly following far back at $5 billion while Binance Smart Chain protocols hold roughly the exact figure. Although Ethereum has been high flying in the last couple of days, its 30-day performance shows that it has lost more than 10% of its TVL.

Binance Smart Chain and Tron have also lost considerable amounts, with the protocols coming in at 2.5% and 9.7% in the same time frame. With the entire figure placed at a little below $54 billion, MarkerDAO has dominated in the last 24 hours. However, it has also registered a 6% loss in the last 30 days, with Lido seeing a loss of more than 10%. In the last 24 hours, Lido has locked in a little above $5 billion.

Compound Finance, Aave, and Just Lend are a few protocols that have also seen slight gains in the last 24 hours. Although top smart contracts tokens performed woefully, the mid-placed tokens were the star of the show. Rose saw a 21% rise, with Neblio also seeing relative gains above 35%. The report also claimed that Ethereum led the top intelligent contract tokens in losses with about 7% over last week.
