As reported by Federico Izzi – also known as Zio Romolo – essentially 86% of July’s volumes were recorded in August in just 15 days, almost reaching the historic record of 4 billion traded volumes.
In fact, in July the volumes had been 4.465 billion, and in just 15 days the volumes of August approach these figures, reaching 3.851 billion.
Looking at the graph, we can see that the DEX in the lead is Uniswap, followed by Curve and DDEX, though with a big gap between the first and the second.
The previous record for the period had been last July, when volumes had reached “only” 190 million dollars.
The new DeFi records
But it isn’t only DEXs that are setting records, the entire DeFi sector also scores new highs every day and today, for example, despite the day not being over, there is a total of 6.275 billion dollars locked in the various dApps. Yesterday this figure amounted to 5.911 billion dollars.
In the lead, as the most used dApp there is Maker DAO, as always, but Aave overtakes Synthetix and Compound, reaching second place. Same comeback for Curve Finance, which rises to third place.
In just one day Aave went up by 4.39%, while the Curve Finance DEX has gone up by 8.27%, which shows that the decentralized exchanges are flourishing.
