Synthetix price has risen sharply in the past few weeks as investors cheer the comeback of the DeFi industry. In the past few weeks, the total value locked in DeFi has surged to more than $83 billion. This is a substantial figure considering that the TVL fell to about $70 billion.

Synthetix has also risen because of the upcoming ethereum upgrade that will see it become a proof-of-stake cryptocurrency. Since Synthetix is built on Ethereum, it will get more vibrant as speeds increase and costs fall.

Meanwhile, the developers are currently building V3 of Synthetix. This upgrade will come after the highly successful Perps V2 launch that has led to over $2.5 billion in transactions. SNX stakers have earned about $10 million from fees.

The new version will introduce more features like pushing it to become a fully permissionless derivatives platform. It will create a pool to support nearly all financial derivatives and improve staking.
