Having set a new ATH earlier this month, the current surge sets a bullish sign in Ethereum based products as the decentralized finance apps adoption continues to rise.
DeFi products cross the billion dollar mark
A close look at the DeFi value charts shows an explosive growth in the USD, Ethereum (ETH) and Dai (DAI) value stored in decentralized finance applications. Starting the year off at $275 million dollars on January 1st, the value stored across DeFi products has seen tremendous growth as products increase in the field.

Over the course of the year, the value locked in DeFi has grown over 155% to $702 million as of November 29th, representing the all-time high value.
In ETH terms, the value is still at its ATH locking over 4.5 million ETH tokens in financial products on a decentralized network.
Maker leads the DeFi apps in value
Maker, a platform that lends Dai stable token in collateralized loans, leads the decentralized finance world with close to half of all the value. The Ethereum based lending app currently has 2.1 million ETH locked, equivalent to $331.6 million USD, representing a 3% increase in the past 24 hours.
