The value of crypto locked in DeFi has passed $3B; Will this propel token prices higher?

BTC $9372 (+0.1%) • ETH $245 (+0.3%) • XRP $0.20 (+1%)

It appears that a few primary factors are backing the growth this metric has seen, including the launch of new protocols and tokens, yield farming’s mounting popularity, and an increase in the amount of value locked within decentralized exchanges and derivatives.

For the relatively small DeFi token sector to continue extending its parabolic growth, users must continue heavily interacting with protocols.
