Balancer, a liquidity protocol, showed the highest growth at 86%, despite experiencing a theft in late June that saw $500,000 worth of Ethereum stolen

Balancer began distributing its governance token BAL on June 23, releasing 145,000 BAL tokens per week for those who have begun earning BAL since June 1. One of the most prominent features is Balancer’s liquidity pools, which can be used in conjunction with platform’s like Compound Finance and Synthetix. The development team has already begun collaborating with Synthetix and REN for a BTC yield farming program.

Following Balancer is Curve Finance and Aave Labs, which respectively experienced user growths of 60% and 32%. Aave is a lending and borrowing platform, while Curve Finance focuses solely on the swapping of stablecoins.
