High volume of total value of locked funds (TVL) in the Cardano system

The total value locked (TVL) in the Cardano network’s decentralized financial system has been growing rapidly over the past few weeks.
With the great movement witnessed recently in the cryptocurrency markets. Investors are moving towards looking for alternatives to the Ethereum network in other networks like Solana, Avalanche, and of course Cardano.

The Cardano network has become home to a huge ecosystem of DeFi, RealFi, and non-fungible tokens (NFT) with multiple uses. Which in turn led to a high demand for Cardano (ADA).

Data from DeFiLlama indicates that the total locked value of Cardano TVL reached a peak of $444 million on Thursday. surpassing a previous peak of $330 million in April.

Most of the growth appears to have occurred over the past week, as lending protocol Indigo and digital exchange Minswap saw TVL increase by more than 50% to around $100 million each.

The stablecoin DJED, a currency pegged to the US dollar, has seen supply increase by more than 45% over the past week.
With an influx of capital from investors seeking to make profits from the returns it offers.

At the same time, the value locked on smaller protocols such as LendFi and Spectrum Finance has risen by 90%. This suggests that users are starting to take riskier bets.

This on-chain growth has helped boost the price of Cardano (ADA), which is used to pay for on-chain activity.
