It should be noted that this number does not represent the total number of valid users in the DeFi. As with most digital services, each user can create an almost unlimited number of addresses, which is why the numbers are inflated.
Nevertheless, these figures can be used as an indicator of overall growth and trends in the FDD market. In this context, a 100% increase in remittances in less than five months shows that the sector is still growing exponentially.

Another clear indicator of growth is the total dollar value currently tied up on the various DeFi platforms (TVL). According to the decentralized metrics site DeFi Pulse, TVL peaked on the 16th. April a new record of over $62 billion.

Since then, however, the overall cryptocurrency market has slumped somewhat, leading to a sharp decline across the board. Nevertheless, at press time, DeFi’s TVL is worth an impressive $54.3 billion.
As noted, Ethereum remains the king of decentralized finance, but other DFi-centric networks are beginning to gain traction amid network congestion and skyrocketing transaction costs.
