As per data by leading DeFi analytical dashboard DeFiLLama, Fantom’s TVL metrics sit at almost $9.5 billion. The closest competitor, Avalanche (AVAX), sees $8.42 bllion locked in its decentralized applications.
In the last 24 hours, amid the bloodbath on crypto markets, Fantom’s apps lost 9.87% of their TVL while the net TVL of Avalanche’s protocols plummeted by 16.5%.
As such, Fantom’s dApps ecosystem needs to add 28% in TVL to challenge the third largest smart contracts platform, Binance Smart Chain (BSC). It does not look impossible for Fantom: in the past 30 days, its TVL rallied 131%.
