Some Defi tokens are bucking this trend, however. Over the previous week, several have seen increases of over ten percent.

As the Ethereum merging draws nearer, many investors are looking to LDO in anticipation of potential large returns. In addition, Lido DAO has proposed using DragonFly to diversify its treasury. According to the proposal’s provisions, DragonFly will purchase 1% of the whole supply of LDO. Currently, the idea has received more than 98 percent of the vote.

These are “Synths,” which are instruments that take the form of ERC-20 smart contracts. In essence, they monitor and provide the yield of another asset without requiring the user to own the asset.
Many people are hoping that SNX will surpass the $50 threshold soon. In addition, the project has fallen significantly from its previous peak of $28.58. Many predict that once the markets settle, this level will be attained once again.
SNX’s price at the time of publication was $3.94.
