TVL, a metric to measure the value and usage of DeFi on various smart contract-capable blockchains, has been gaining popularity among users.

TVL is a measure to see the absolute value locked in the DeFi protocols. However, it cannot be used alone to compare competing chains directly due to their inherent value for staking, such as tokenized assets.

The measure can be better used with the market capitalization as a ratio. The market capitalization ratio (MCAP) and the TVL give a more precise figure to understand the highest DeFi utilization rate of native assets and tokens on a particular blockchain.

A low MCAP/TVL ratio shows higher DeFi utilization.
