DeFi’s impact on the universe
According to DeFi Llama, the total value locked (TVL) on the Cosmos Hub has been steadily increasing, from $376,543 to $720.2303. The new Mars Hub development can add to this growth and significantly boost Cosmos Hub’s presence in the DeFi space, attracting more users and increasing the total value locked on the network.
But despite the increase in TVL, revenue from Cosmos has been steadily declining. Based on data from the Token Terminal, Cosmos Hub’s revenue is seen to have decreased by 11.6% in the last 30 days.
This decline in revenue may be a concern for the Cosmos network, as there may be a lack of interest in it, which may affect its overall sustainability.
In addition to the revenue decline, players have also lost faith in the Cosmos network, with player numbers down 78.82% according to Staking Rewards.
All of these factors also affected the ATOM token. According to Santiment data, ATOM volume decreased from 611 million to 225 million in the last month. This decrease in volume may indicate a lack of interest in the token, which affects its overall value.
On the lighter side

Additionally, according to Coinglass, the majority of large traders are bullish on the future of ATOM, with 51.2% of traders deciding to go long on the token at press time.
