The report revealed:
“Ethereum faced all-time high results in regards to value. Of course, The Ethereum DeFi category was the biggest driver behind this. Accounting for around 95% of the total value created on the chain. The biggest contributors to the category were Compound, Aave, and Curve in July 2020. They generated 48%, 14%, and 14% of transaction volumes respectively.”
