Charts of the week
💰Total value locked (TVL)

Top projects by latest TVL
This week’s top gainers by TVL
Daily TVL for this week’s top movers in the past 180 days
The total amount of value locked in smart contracts has dropped from over $250 billion to slightly under $150 billion in just a few days as cryptoasset prices plummet.
📈Total revenue (fees paid)
Which projects have generated the most fees/yield?
Top projects by cumulative total revenue in the past 7 days
This week’s top gainers by total revenue
Daily total revenue for this week’s top gainers in the past 180 days
An increase in volatility and the unfortunate events around the depegging of TerraUSD have resulted in an increase in total trading volume throughout DeFi as investors search for security.
USD-denominated revenue is trending up despite the sharp decline in prices. This is mainly driven by the increased demand for exchanging cryptoassets.
📉Price to sales (P/S) ratio
How are projects priced relative to total fees/yield generated?
Top projects by latest P/S rations
This week’s top movers by P/S ratio
P/S ratios have decreased across the board as the crypto market continues its downward trend.
Ethereum Name Service (ENS) saw a surge in revenue over the past weeks as speculators rushed to register all 3- and 4-digit ENS domains. This combined with a sharp decline in market cap has it sitting at a P/S ratio of under 5x.
Protocol revenue is the share of the total revenue that accrues to the benefit of token holders or the company behind the protocol.
Top projects by cumulative protocol revenue in the past 7 days
This week’s top gainers by protocol revenue
Daily protocol revenue for this week’s top movers in the past 180 days
Despite a downwards trend in the market, we can see solid revenue growth among small- and mid-cap protocols.
Demand for swapping stablecoins increased substantially as investors searched for security after the depegging of TerraUSD (UST). Curve, and many decentralized exchange aggregators, saw sharp increases in trading volume.
As volatility in the market has increased, we’ve seen more activity on perpetual contracts exchanges such as dYdX.
📉Price to earnings (P/E) ratio
The 'E' in the P/E ratio is based on protocol revenue, i.e. the share of the total revenue that accrues to the benefit of token holders or the company behind the protocol.
Top projects by latest P/E ratio
This week’s top movers by P/E ratio
Both the P/S and P/E valuation multiples have decreased significantly as markets trend downwards and trading activity has increased.
*Note: We have excluded dapps & blockchains with revenue figures under $10k/week.
