The Divergence Between Price and Fundamentals

The bear trend continues while DeFi is growing faster than ever


Hey DEFI TIMES community,

The crypto markets are bloody red compared to the insane highs we saw in March/April 2021. Take a look at the Fear & Greed Index!

Even though the insanely bearish price action seems over, people are still confused. They don’t know where things are heading!

Markets keep declining, but there’s one thing that doesn’t care… DeFi!

The best metric to track DeFi’s growth is the amount of ETH locked in smart contracts.

And apparently, almost ¼ of all ETH are now locked in DeFi protocols.

This is an extremely healthy sign! It shows - once again - that DeFi doesn’t sleep. People might be bearish, but for how long?

At this point, the amount of ETH locked is almost at the same level as what it was during the DAO hack!! However, this time, we built a safe and battle-tested environment.

Prices decline - but fundamentals keep exploding. You don’t have to be a genius to realize that the market is not recognizing the opportunity.

Think long-term… keep stacking ;)
