Bitcoin booms and DeFi declines
In what seems to be like a Zero-sum game, since September, Bitcoin has increased drastically in value while DeFi Tokens value has plummeted.
A Twitter user “Bitdealer”, who is actually the co-founder of crypto data aggregator Markets Science has posted a chart that compares BTC and DeFi tokens which shows a negative correlation between BTC and 11 of the top DeFi tokens in the last 45 days up to today which is November 1. In this chart, AAVE displays a neutral correlation, and a confluence smaller than 0.1 was observed in UNI.
There is also other interesting information on this chart. Although it is Ethereum that powers a large part of DeFi ecosystem, 7 of the 13 DeFi tokens have a negative correlation with ETH.
It should be mentioned that while most DeFi tokens are losing value BTC has jumped in price last week and analysts have found that there’s a longer negative correlation between BTC and the decentralized finance tokens.

The sector, nonetheless, reached its speculative plateau by the end of August when DeFi Composite Index which belongs to Binance plummeted experiencing a major fall from $1100 at the start of September to less than $400 and crashing 64% at the time of writing this article which is November 2.
DPI or DeFi Pulse Index has also plunged by half of its worth since its launch at $130 around the middle of September. The last recorded trading price for the DPI token was just $61.55.
On the other hand, the most popular cryptocurrency and the one with the largest trading volume, Bitcoin, has skyrocketed and increased its value by a third in the past month right after PayPal announcing its entrance into the crypto world.
