Historical cumulative total users
The above picture is the statistics of DuneAnalytics, which is the cumulative number of DeFi users, which is consistent with the market experience of the first article. The slope became steep in July and August, that is to say, the growth rate of DeFi participants increased. Here we count uniswap/sushiswap and dydx. , Curve, Compound, iinch, kyber, opensea, makerDAO and other fields of projects, all of the DeFi project data in the ETH ecosystem, other public chains themselves are relatively small, so it is normal if there is no statistics, some relatively less famous DEX such as moonswap, hiswap, etc. also have no statistics.
Therefore, considering other public chains and projects without statistics, the cumulative number of people participating in DeFi may exceed 1 million.
Are there many new people joining?
The above chart is used as a reference, you can see that oneshot (understood as: come a hand) plus Virgin (novice) accounted for about 95%, and 5% of users can still be retained, which is fine. More than 2,000 people are added to DEX every day. This growth is okay.
Popular DEX daily users:
Picture from DeBank.
September 26, 2020 is the peak of the number of users. It can be seen that Uniswap has 27,000 daily users, accounting for 62.7%. 27,000 divided by 62.7% is 43,000. This is the highest peak daily use of DEX this year. The number of users, including those without statistics, is about 50,000 users.
Current daily users
The data has dropped a bit fast, and the number of daily users of DEX Uniswap has fallen below 10,000.
8174/78.36%=10132 users. In the past, Uniswap alone could exceed 20,000 users per day, but now all DEXs add up to more than 10,000 users.
Take the above DEX as an example. Because ordinary users use DEX more often, the lending business was once the main business, but more large households or institutions are participating in the use. After the income of lending and mining decreases, ordinary users are less enthusiastic about participation. Institutional or large-account lending business has additional value.
DeFi lockup value：
At present, the total value of locked positions is close to 14 billion U.S. dollars. The arrow in the picture shows that the total number of locked positions is rising in fluctuation, and the development of DeFi is relatively stable. At present, DeFi is still one of the application scenarios used by participants in the blockchain field.
To sum up, the total number of people who have participated in DeFi in the world exceeds 1 million, but the current daily users do not exceed 100,000.
