How Dominant Is Ethereum?

Are all DeFi tokens listed on Ethereum? I went through the top 100 projects under Coinmarketcap’s DeFi tab and clicked on each one to find their respective platforms.

  • 10 do not have a platform listed. Most likely they have their own chain.
  • 77 are on Ethereum
    • 34 of these are exclusively on Ethereum
  • 36 are on the Binance Smart Chain
    • 9 of these are exclusively on Binance
  • 20 are on the Xdai chain
  • 12 are on Fantom
  • 9 are on Heco
  • 7 are on Polygon
  • 6 are on the Avalache Contract Chain
  • 4 are on Solana
  • 1 is on Tron
  • 1 is on NEO

For some reason Polkadot is listed differently. Coinmarketcap has a separate category for the Polkadot Ecosystem.

  • 28 of the Polkadot projects are valuable enough to be on the DeFi top 100.
    • 14 of these are actually on the DeFi top 100
    • This reduces the Ether exclusivity by 4, to 30

Cardano does not have a single project on this list. It makes sense as the Cardano token system is too new to have any major projects yet.

Most projects are on Ethereum but only 1/3 are exclusively on Ethereum. The other two large DeFi platforms are the Binance Smart Chain and Polkadot.

P.S. Below is a table where I’ve listed the top 100 projects with their respective platforms. Bold indicates it’s also on Polkadot.
