Check out the top 10 most used DeFi applications | 23-30 June 2020

The DeFi category on DappRadar currently contains just 33 active dapps and is still a relatively new and evolving category. In fact, many dapps are still debating which category best describes their offer, Decentralized Exchange (DEX) or DeFi, whilst dapps that provide both have a decision to make in the near future.

There is also the possibility the two overlapping categories will organically combine. As such DappRadar may track decentralized finance as one category in the future. For now, explore 10 DeFi applications with the most users in the last 7-days.

It is important to note the weighting of applications operating on the Ethereum protocol. 8 of the top 10 DeFi dapps run on Ethereum. Interestingly TRON is making a dent in Ethereums dominance in 2020 with its JUST and newest offer – Oikos.cash.

Born as stablecoin project Havven, Synthetix rebranded and expanded its scope prior to launching on mainnet in February 2019.

Stocks, indices, and other derivatives are expected to be added soon.

The Maker platform leverages Ethereum smart contracts to automate the functions of a lending platform, as well as its associated stable coin in a decentralized manner. Users of the platform can post collateral (Ether) and receive the platform’s native stablecoin, Dai, which is designed to mirror the value of the US Dollar.


Curve is an automated market-maker optimized for stablecoins, working as an exchange on one side, and allowing liquidity providers to earn fees and lending interest on the other side.
