There are now $4.47 billion worth of crypto assets locked in prominent decentralized finance (defi) dapps running on ethereum.
That’s an increase of some $500 million within one week, with it increasing by half a billion the previous week as well.
MakerDAO in particular has seen a huge jump to $1.34 billion currently after it just about touched $1.4 billion.
There isn’t much change here in regards to listed dapps, but there has been a significant change on the amount locked with Compound too not far off from $1 billion.
Maker however has about $1 billion locked in just eth with some 2.5 million eth on the smart contract now.
Wow, dai is now close to $400 million in market cap, seeing a huge rise from $128 million in just the past month.
Usually people put 3x collateral on dai, so making it about $1.2 billion with some clearly putting more collateral.
The value itself has been fairly stable, with this now becoming sufficiently liquid to significantly perform proper functions like as a trading pair on decentralized or centralized exchanges.
Arguably there should be a euro token as well because that is holding better value nowadays, but after two years of running largely without problems, the concept is now seemingly taking off.
