The crypto market’s worth began to drop again after a buoyant bull accumulation over the past week. The TVL in Defi plunged below the $50 billion mark to exactly $49.8 billion.
On February 25, 2023, Ethereum had the highest TVL, leading by 58.45% of all blockchains. Tron came in second with 10.64%, followed by BSC with 10.01%, Arbitrum with 3.89%, and Polygon with 2.36%. These five blockchains captured 85.35% of the total value stored in decentralized finance on Saturday. Among the top ten blockchains, Arbitrum caught the eye with its TVL increasing by 9.39% last week and 60.87% over the last month.
This week, among the first ten smart contract coins, the biggest drop was attributed to Polygon, with a 17.6% dip. The largest pump was Stacked, which rose to 102.5%. The second-largest coin pump was the Kylin Network (KYL), which rose to 69.1%. The two greatest losers were Astar (ASTR), which lost a whopping 26.2%, and Shiden Network, with a dip of 23.9%.
The recent crypto dip had a huge impact on the values of smart contract tokens and the TVL in DeFi over the last month. Jamie Redman, a news and financial journalist at Bitcoin.com gave a rundown of how the recent dip impacted Lido and Uniswap. Both Lido and Uniswap enjoyed a 30-day increase of 8.43% and 6.43%, respectively, during the dip.
