As of late, Ethereum price has been in the lows but the community still hopes it is going to skyrocket this year as Ethereum 2.0 is in development and also because more progress with DeFi is visible.

More and more people are tweeting about the amount of ETH locked in with DeFi, which has been rising recently.

Besides, the ETH-based dApps are also increasing their volume, even though Tron seems to remain a more popular platform for dApps so far.

“Price will follow, I'm accumulating AF.”

Crypto trader and analyst @IamCryptoWolf has shared some data regarding the amount of ETH locked in with DeFi recently and says that it is ‘going parabolic’. He believes the ETH price is bound to surge later this year, although in the comment thread some of his followers disagree that the term ‘parabolic’ is the right one to use here.

As U.Today reported recently, the amount of ETH locked in DeFi now is over 3 mln (that is over $416 mln).
