Top 5 Value Locked
The Top 5 Value Locked insight tracks the 5 protocols with the highest dollar amount locked in their smart contracts. This serves as a comparison of the top protocols, and can be filtered by categories by looking at the top 5 lending protocols and DEXes categories.
This graph is valuable to compare value locked across top protocols. Specifically, it can be interesting to see where liquidity shifts following large events such as the expiration of the UNI liquidity mining rewards.
In this case, users can observe that following the expiration of UNI rewards, Uniswap’s liquidity dropped approximately 50%, with some of it likely reallocating to other top DeFi protocols. By selecting the DEXes category, users can see to which decentralized exchanges liquidity moved the most to after this event.
