Ethereum has the largest TVL market share, worth $28.56 billion, accounting for more than 58.42% of the Defi market cap. After Ethereum there are other contenders such as Tron, BSC, Arbitrum and Polygon with relatively large TVL stats. Tron and Arbitrum recorded monthly gains of 7.77% and 9.98%, respectively. However, BSC was the largest chain to lose TVL, losing 6.52% compared to the previous month.
Today, a large amount of ETH worth $16.416 billion (8,550,940 ETH) is locked in liquid staking platforms out of a total value of $49.31 billion locked in the DeFi system. The main liquidity staking platforms on Ethereum are Lido, Coinbase, Rocket Pool, Frax, and Stakewise. Rocket Pool and Frax have impressive 30-day gains of 29.75% and 39.49%, respectively.

However, Tron has the highest user base among the top 5 defi platforms at 2,538,896. The number of active Ethereum users of its Defi application is about 332,548. While TVL shows signs of improving in 2023, it still falls short of the previous record of $53 billion.
