According to data from DefiLlama, as of June 16, 2024, the total amount of funding for the industry has reached $101.35 billion.

As of May 2024, a decade later, funding for the industry reached $280.25 million for the month, showing a substantial increase but still falling short of the previous month’s $777.11 million. The peak of cryptocurrency startup funding was achieved in October 2021, with over $7 billion raised.

The second-highest month on record was February 2022 with $3.67 billion raised. Despite the ongoing peaks and troughs, the industry has seen overall growth, surpassing $100 billion in funding raised since May 2014.
