Ethereum on Crypto Exchanges Continues to Drop. The continual use of Ethereum has resulted in the progressive decline in the amount of ETH left on crypto exchanges.

In a recent analysis, the team at Santiment highlighted that majority of the Ethereum is ending up in DeFi as explained through the following statement and accompanying chart.

The amount of #Ethereum sitting on exchanges continues to drop lower, as more and more funds move into hard wallets and #DeFi-based options.

This is a good sign for $ETH holders, as less exchange supply implies a decreased likelihood of major sell-offs.

  • Compound (COMP) finance becomes the first DeFi project to exceed $10 Billion in total value locked
  • $51.8 Billion is currently locked on Ethereum based DeFi projects
  • The allure of yield farming has resulted in a drop in the amount of Ethereum sitting in crypto exchanges
  • Over $22 Billion in Ethereum is locked in the various DeFi protocols

The lending platform of Compound (COMP) Finance became the first DeFi protocol to exceed $10 Billion in total value locked. This milestone by Compound (COMP) was highlighted and shared by the team at DeFi Pulse through the following tweet.

$5B in Ethereum is Locked in Compound

At the time of writing, a total of $10.06 Billion is locked in Compound (COMP) Finance. Half of this value comprises of 2.4 million ETH valued at $5.097 Billion using Ethereum’s current value at $2,124.

$22.3B in Ethereum is Locked in DeFi

The DeFi realm has also hit all-time highs in total value locked at $51.8 Billion. Yield farmers continue to use Ethereum with a total of 10.5 million ETH locked in the various DeFi protocols.
