by Anthony Weaver

Although the 2022 crypto winter has been especially cold in
decentralized finance (DeFi) land, the DeFi industry is set to skyrocket
this year, with revenue reaching record highs.

According to data presented by BitcoinCasinos.com [1], global DeFi
revenues are expected to jump by an impressive 226% year-over-year and
hit $16.9bn in 2023.

The Number of DeFi Users Recovers to Pre-2022 Levels with 8.37M in 2023

DeFi activity has had a solid start to 2023, driven by a broader market
recovery. With the trading volume and the number of users recovering to
pre-2022 levels, the market projections for 2023 and the following years
have become more optimistic.

According to Statista data, global DeFi revenue dropped to $5.2bn last
year amid the crypto winter, down from $6.1bn reported in 2021. However,
2023 is set to witness a three-digit growth, with revenue surging by
226% year-over-year to $16.9bn. Statista expects the entire market to
continue growing by a CAGR of 19.6% in the next four years, resulting in
a total volume of $34.7bn by 2027.

The average revenue per user in the DeFi market was $2,026 in 2023. This
value is set to jump over $3,700 in the next four years. According to a
Statista survey, the entire market will also witness double-digit user

In 2019, there were around 160,000 DeFi users. Two years later, this
figure surged to 8.54 million worldwide. After a huge drop in 2022, and
the number of users falling to 5.79 million, 2023 is set to witness
considerable user growth in the DeFi space. Statista expects more than
2.5 million new users this year, pushing the total user count to 8.37
million. By 2027, this figure is expected to jump to over 9.3 million.

Total Value Locked in DeFi Jumped by 40% Year-to-Date

Crypto prices have surged in value over the past five months, pushing
the total value locked in DeFi (TVL) way above the levels seen in the
first weeks of 2023.

According to CoinMarketCap and Trading View data, the total value locked
in DeFi amounted to $30.8bn in January. After rising to $53.8bn a month
later, this figure plunged to $41.7bn in March. However, the last two
months have brought a recovery, with TVL in DeFi reaching $53.9bn on
April 18, the highest value this year. Although this figure slipped to
$43.6bn last week, this still represents a massive 40% increase

Around 58% of the total value locked in DeFi is tied to Ethereum. Tron
is the second-largest blockchain in TVL size, with 11.96% of the total
value locked. Binance Smart Chain (BSC) ranked third with 9.36% of the
total value. Arbitrum, Polygon, and Optimism are the next largest
blockchains, with 4.9%, 2.13%, and 1.88% share of TVL.
