Defi Rebounds: Total Value Locked and Token Prices Surge as 2023 Marks a Year of Recovery and Growth

On April 3, 2022, decentralized finance (defi) protocols held approximately $163 billion total value locked (TVL). By the start of January 2023, this amount declined to $38.30 billion. Concurrently, in April 2022, the leading defi tokens by market capitalization were collectively worth $135 billion, but by Jan. 1, 2023, their total value had diminished to $33.9 billion. However, both these indicators have seen an upward trajectory over the past year; the TVL rose by 39.16%, and the market valuation of the foremost defi tokens today escalated by over 129% within 12 months.
