DeFi is growing exponentially, adding a billion dollars of collateral locked in a mere two days. Aave and Curve have been the most potent drivers, as each project smashed past a billion dollars in locked collateral.
DeFi’s Exponential Growth
The DeFi exuberance continues, but Aave and Curve are now leading the way.
Value locked in the protocol grew from $200 million to $1.1 billion in just five days. Similarily, Aave accelerated from $500 million to $1.12 billion in a short three days.
DeFi making up for lost time. Exponential is so much fun. See you tomorrow! 😂

While this need not affect the total value locked, it will be a grand impetus for Aave’s native token.
Synthetix is on the verge of joining the club, with over $850 million of collateral locked in the ecosystem. yEarn Finance is also closing in on ten figures, and Compound has boasted supplied funds of over $1 billion since June.
