According to decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem tracker DeFiLlama, early this morning the DeFi ecosystem breached $100 billion in total value locked for the first time — rising 7% from $94.7 billion yesterday to $101.33 billion at the time of publication.

Aside from the psychologically significant 9th digit, the figure is notable both for the speed with which it was attained (the ecosystem sat at $20.74 billion total on January 1st, 2021) as well as the sheer quantity of assets the upstart financial vertical now represents.

Per Wikipedia, at $100 billion TVL DeFi is now the equivalent of the 40th largest American bank, sitting between Silicon Valley Bank’s $97 billion in assets and BBVA USA’s $103 billion. Some notable names poised to be left in the dirt in the coming months include Deutsche Bank, sitting at #38 with $119 billion, and Credit Suisse at #35 with $124 billion.
