Analysts predict DeFi rally in 2022

Defi coins didn’t stop working because of a defi bear market. They just reached really high market caps and growth stalled. When coins appeared with lower caps and higher growth ( $SPELL, $CVX, etc) those coins did well.
Always opportunity when market cap low and growth high!

Over the past two weeks, Aave price has posted over 50% gains. The AAVE/USD pair has rallied over the past few weeks, breaking out of the downtrend. Analysts believe that in the short-term, an RSI breakout or making $300 the support will imply a continuation of the uptrend.
The total value locked, considered as market capitalization has increased several times for Aave, Curve Dao and Sushi Swap. Growth in total value locked is considered a sign of bullish outlook from investors.
