DefiLlama Data Strikes Concerns Among Cardano Community
However, the community still has concerns because of the data present on DefiLlama regarding Cardano DeFi. On 27th May, the total value locked on across all Cardano protocols fell by 9.24%.
At the time of writing, it was recorded to be approximately at $116.44 million, a 60% decrease from Cardano’s all-time high TVL of $326 million on 24 March.
The decreasing values of protocols across the Cardano network is being considered one of the major reasons for the crash.
Minswap, the largest protocol on Cardano by TVL, has declined by $37.87 in the past month.WIngRiders, another decentralized trading platform, has fallen by over 50% in the past month.
While the only trading solution operating on Cardano, MeowSwapFI has dropped by nearly 60% in the same period.
Analysts also believe that the Terra collapse is the root cause of the DeFi damage today. After the stable coin crash, a sudden rise in FUD sentiment was experienced across the crypto industry.
As a result of the mess, heavy losses were seen across the crypto assets, NFT marketplace, and DeFi TVs.
Despite this, Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, continues to remain hopeful regarding the future of his blockchain.
