After a bloody week for decentralized finance (DeFi) projects that saw numerous tokens plummet by up to 50%, the DeFi sector has rebounded by 19% in one day. Ether is also up 11% over the past 24 hours.
According to Messari, 32 of 37 DeFi tokens are up today, posting gains of between 3% and 39.6%.

Swerve (SWRV) tops the daily charts, followed by Yearn Finance (YFI) with a 37.6% gain, Loopring (LRC) with 29.9%, Aave (LEND) with 29.4%, and SushiSwap (SUSHI) with 27.8%.
YFI’s rally comes despite its highly anticipated Ether (ETH) vault producing a diminishing annual percentage yield (APY) since launching roughly one week ago. However, the daily returns generated by Yearn Finance’s stablecoin vaults have pushed above 0.1%, likely fuelling the rally.
DeFi tokens have outperformed the broader Ethereum ecosystem, with 136 of 178 ETH-based tokens in the green for an average gain of 8.3%.

The notable exception is Solana (SOL), which is the second-strongest top 100 crypto asset of the day with a 47% gain.
