DeFi Pulse is a site where you can find the latest analytics and rankings of DeFi protocols. Our rankings track the total value locked into the smart contracts of popular DeFi applications and protocols. Additionally, we curate The DeFi List, a collection of the best resources in DeFi, and DeFi Pulse Farmer, a newsletter covering the latest news and opportunities in DeFi.
Bitcoin at Work measures the total amount of BTC being utilized within decentralized finance (DeFi). DeFi Pulse monitors each BTC token on the Ethereum blockchain. Every hour, we refresh our charts by pulling the total balance held by these smart contracts.
TVL(USD) is calculated by taking the balance of each smart contract (excluding instances of double counting) and multiplying them by their price in USD. You can view the open source project adapters that power our metrics here.
Decentralized finance is open for anyone to take part in. You can start by exploring the resources found on The DeFi List. Stay informed on the latest news and opportunities in DeFi by subscribing to the DeFi Pulse Farmer newsletter.
