BNT’s price has been in a strong bearish trend as investors react to the ongoing challenges in the DeFi industry. The crisis escalated when Terra’s ecosystem crashed in May.
The BNT price crash accelerated after the developers suspended the impermanent loss protection. This is a solution that solved the problem where users lost value when staking coins. It allows staking to be safer, easier, and more lucrative for normal investors.
In the statement, the company said that it was suspending the feature. The statement added:
“The temporary measure to pause IL protection should give the protocol some room to breathe and recover. We are working to get IL protection reactivated as soon as possible.”
As shown below, the total value locked in Bancor has been in a strong downward trend. It has fallen from more than $300 million to over $73 million. Most notably, the number of unique liquidity providers has plummeted.
