Ethereum is leading the Defi TVL and is in charge of 56.7% of this volume, followed by Binance Smart Chain.

WuBlockchain reports that Terra has burnt 29 million UST for 21 days.

“According to Smart Stake, Luna has burned more than 29 million for 21 days. The demand for UST has increased. The total supply has increased from 11,256.43 million on February 9 to 12,942.91 million, an increase of nearly 15%.”


As Webitcoin has reported, cryptocurrencies have recently gained prominence and are playing a significant role in helping to facilitate donations to beleaguered Ukraine.

The new non-governmental organization created to support the Ukrainian army has already received over 201.9 Bitcoin from compassionate users, currently worth over $10 million.

Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov, who is not satisfied with Russia’s SWIFT ban, has also urged cryptocurrency exchanges to block all Russian addresses.

Since then, significant exchanges Binance, Kraken, and Coinbase, have officially refused. The exchanges think that Russian citizens are innocents and have nothing to do with Putin’s ambitions; also, perhaps it wasn’t a good idea to demand a ban on a community concentrated on decentralization and transparency.
