Due to acute selling pressure among investors, the broad cryptocurrency market is experiencing difficult days.

The prices of the main cryptocurrencies are suffering significant drops and pessimism seems to be strong. This reality has also affected DeFi, and in this summary we present you the most outstanding news of the week in this sector.

Among the important factors in the sector, a noticeable decrease in the total value locked (TVL) of decentralized financial protocols stands out. According to the data of the portal DeFiLlama, these capitals have recently reached 87 billion dollars.

This week saw important progress in terms of developments, projects and alliances between the main ecosystems. As in the broader cryptocurrency market, a new spring or bull market is expected in DeFi.
