The DeFi season is on, contrary to the popular expectation of the Altcoin season because the financial dapp tokens saw a compelling rise in gains in the previous few days. Currently, the market is experiencing a vibe of ‘late 2017’ where the price of assets increased rapidly. Assets like MKR, REN, AAVE, and COMP went through a major price rise in the past few weeks. Along with that, the new DeFi Coins also continued to break out on a daily basis.
The total value locked reached an all-time high this week, of $1.5 Billion Dollars. This only confirms the path that DeFi has set upon.
DeFi Market Overview
Compound and Balancer highlighted this surge effectively. They both introduced liquidity mining which had protocols that put a bargaining chip on the SAFG model. This allowed the distribution of tokens to users based on their value-added actions in their respective ecosystems.
The Delphi Digital stated in a report that DeFi was hitting new heights and pace would continue to accelerate. On Friday, people saw the COMP tokens being exchanged at $230 which was a 270% gain within 24 hours. This shows how frantic the speculation has become.
Experts claim that COMPs up-speed is established on bets on a future shakeup of the cutthroat environment. They believe so because COMPs still rank below Maker(MKR) in terms of the total value.
Supply and speculation
COMPOUND – COMP
A user can earn COMP by simply lending or borrowing one’s assets. The interest and the number of COMPs earned are directly proportional, meaning the assets which generate the most interest will earn the most COMP per day. The major work of COMP is to govern important protocol decisions. One can simply delegate that on the Compound Governance Dashboard.
Net supply: 10,000,000 COMP
Currently, about 120% of all fees used to burn LEND. Expected that in the future LEND will become a governance token overtaking the COMP and also operate as an insurance against any deficit.
Net supply: 1,299,999,942 LEND
Maker is responsible for generating DAI using its decentralized lending protocol. It can also be used in voting on protocol decisions through the Maker Voting Dashboard.
Net supply: 1,005,577 MKR
Conclusively, we can comprehend that the DeFi tokens will be creating unique and new ways to gain access to potential opportunities in a seamless manner. As we continue to see the up-speed of the tokens, it safe to say that the opportunities for end-users will be innumerable and more easily accessible than before.
