Lido Finance sees double-digit monthly users
As per AMBCrypto’s analysis of the fee chart on DefiLlama, despite the above numbers, there has not been a significant spike in the DeFi protocol’s fees of late.
Most of the notable spikes occurred between March and May this year, in the lead-up to and following the activation of ETH withdrawals. During these spikes, fees on the Lido Finance network reached over $3 million.
As of press time, the fees had exceeded $1.7 million.
Furthermore, an examination of the Total Value Locked (TVL) chart on the network showed increased activity. Between October and November, the TVL had surged by over $2 billion. Also, as of this writing, the figure was over $16.8 billion.
While the price of its token, LDO, could contribute to the growing TVL, user activity played a significant role as well.
LDO loses grounds on gains
AMBCrypto’s analysis of the daily timeframe chart indicated that LDO concluded the previous week on a positive note. The week ended with a 2% increase in value, and LDO was trading above $2.

Additionally, both the short and long Moving Averages (yellow and blue lines) were acting as support at different price levels at the time of publication.
