We continue our weekly tradition of publishing main stories in the DeFi market! DeFi is showing a bit of renewed strength lately, with the total value locked (TVL) in the ecosystem having risen from $52.94B to $55.73B since last week. That makes this the second week of steady growth in a row now for DeFi after its TVL slump to ~$49B toward the end of June!
And it is Monday today, so we want to share last DeFi stories with you:
