TokenTerminal released a good summary article about Lending protocols in its “Weekly Fundamentals” series: Year to date, the lending sector has seen an increase in active loans from $3.5bn to $5.5bn. Aave (market share of ~50%) saw active loans grow from $2.1bn to $2.8bn. Radiant Capital and Morpho surpassed their competitors with active loan growth rates of 370% and 63%, respectively, with Radiant Capital’s growth significantly influenced by its expansion to the BNB Chain.

Speaking about Radiant Capital, the protocol announced a $10m fundraise led by Binance Labs yesterday.

Overall, the market remains in good shape with US$742m inflows over the last 4 weeks, although investors maintain their focus on Bitcoin. This represents the largest run of inflows since the final quarter of 2021.

Aave’s GHO has been activated. So far, $5.5m has been minted with close to 50% of it sitting in the GHO Balancer pool. GHO has so far been mostly trading below $1, averaging $0.9865 and dipping to $0.98. The other major new stablecoin crvUSD has experienced significant growth hitting $83m in crvUSD minted.

Stablecoin monitoring

GUSD liquidity fell from ~$2m to $1.7m. sUSD liquidity decreased from $30m to $22.4m. LUSD liquidity recovered from $10m to $13.6m. sUSD backing materially improved from 390% 540%. LUSD backing stayed flat at ~260%.

There are no significant oracle deviations between DEX and CEX prices.


Over the last weeks, we highlighted how stkcvxcrvPlain3andSUSD has an outsized share within the collateral pool accounting for 40% at the top. It’s weight has considerably reduced to 20.3% now. However, stETH has emerged as the new heavyweight in the collateral pool with a share of 43% (+700bps vs last week). Combined, these two assets now make up 63% (-800bps vs last week) of all collateral assets. This requires monitoring to avoid the build up of significant cluster risks.
