Furthermore, it elaborated that Defi activity has leaped through, as a share of all transaction volume dedicated to Defi activity hiked, beginning from May 2020, and further-reaching above 50% by February. This activity has primarily been driven by Uniswap, Instadapp, and dydx, with significant activity on Compound, Curve, AAVE, and 1inch as well.  Additionally, India appears to be at the top of these Defi activities, amounting to 59 percent participation in the Defi industry.

“India has a much bigger share of activity taking place on Defi platforms at 59%, versus 47% for Vietnam and 33% for Pakistan.”, stated the Chainalysis report.

Defi Growth served with a side of Hacks

Defi has enjoyed this extraordinary growth but has also suffered as the Defi hack trend spread like wildfire in the community. Leading protocols continue to lose million as Defi attackers join the hacking trend. Defi platforms including, CREAM Finance, PolyNetwork,

Neko Network, the DEX protocol – NowSwap, pNetwork, and the latest hack of StakeSteak have borne the burn of multi-million dollar exploits. However, most of these protocols saw the hackers return the stolen amount soon after the exploit. Industry experts claim that these returns are coming in lieu of convenience, as laundering stolen crypto on such a scale, is a bigger task than stealing it.
