Ethereum is one of the pioneers in the field of DeFi (Decentralized Finance). Although there are now some candidates were able to place themselves also in the field of decentralized applications (e.g., EOS, Tron, Tomochain), but in the end, Ethereum is the undisputed leader. This is mainly due to the long Track Record and the amount of documentation. But the financial crisis has also made Ethereum.The ETH exchange rate has fallen within a week of approx. 250 USD to under 100 USD. This has not only many DeFi proponents in the unrest, but also some problems in the network shown (MakerDAO, DAI). But now it seems to go for Ethereum back uphill. The curly ETH in Smart Contracts for Defined applications have in the last 3 days to recover, although the Ethereum rate has seen no significant increase.What is Ethereum (ETH)? The Smart Contract platform, is perhaps before the next Boom due to the DeFi-area?

This number fell abruptly as investors your curly Ethereum from the Smart Contracts obtained, in order to sell these, or at least for a possible sale at the ready. The number of ETH that were gelocked, has fallen by more than 600,000 ETH. This was also accompanied with the problem in MakerDAO.Now, however, the DeFi seem to be recovering applications on Ethereum. The number of curly ETH is again increased to about 400, 000 ETH. This shows that investors have confidence in Ethereum and the different Defined applications. It can be assumed that many investors are pursuing long-term intentions, and thus the supply of Ethereum on the open market to reduce.
