Algorand [ALGO] hits new ATH TVL and here’s the why of it all
Algorand [ALGO] reached a new All-Time High (ATH) as its DeFi Total Value Locked (TVL) hit $273.87 million. According to DeFi Llama, the overall DeFi TVL recovered on 17 October but may not contribute as much as ALGO to the $54 billion recovery.
Data from the TVL aggregator showed that almost all the protocols under the ALGO chain increased in the last 24 hours.
Here’s AMBCrypto’s Price Prediction for Algorand for 2022-2025
DeFi Llama revealed that the Algofi protocol registered a 15.47% uptick in the last seven days. Lending protocol, Folks Finance went up 19.18% within the same period while Decentralized Exchanges-based protocol had a 167% increase in the last thirty days.
Dissecting the whys
However, it seemed that the protocols were not the only factors that played a part in the TVL rise. According to Santiment, Algorand had been immensely working on developments on its chain.
This was due to the increase recorded by the development activity. Santiment data showed that ALGO’s development activity was 19.71, at press time. Interestingly, the same metric had decreased to 8.85 on 11 October.
As for its social dominance, ALGO seemed to have revived interest in the coin across the ecosystem. This implied that more discussion has been centered around the asset with the metric’s rise from 0.143% to 0.626%, at the time of this writing.
In another interesting turn, ALGO announced that it had launched a new governance system called “Algofi governance.”

According to the update, the system would allow ALGO users to vote on the Algofi protocol. Note that the Algofi protocol allows ALGO users to earn interest and also borrow ALGO assets. At press time, its Medium update showed that there were already two proposals live on the protocol.
Additionally, the ALGO ATH seemed like a trigger to be on the right side of crypto investors. This was because the coin’s positive sentiment had been reignited according to Santiment.
With its value rising at 25.24, ALGO could see more investors come into the chain and possibly more active addresses. On the other hand, the negative sentiment was at 8.75— meaning the ecosystem favored an ALGO adoption more.
This was a 1.39% increase from the last 24 hours. On the volume part, there seemed to be more liquidity entering the ALGO chain as the 24-hour trading volume increased 29.25% to $71.49 million.
With ALGO’s price down 90.71% from its ATH, investors would only desire that the TVL milestone had more impact on the asset value.
