Prisma Finance, a rising decentralized borrowing protocol, made headlines as its total value locked (TVL) surged to $320 million, a staggering $240 million increase within a single day. The surge coincided with the launch of the governance token, PRISMA, marking a significant development for the platform.

The deposited wstETH was utilized to mint over $60 million worth of mkUSD stablecoins. Currently, the address (0x9FC) holds a dominant share of over 60% of the wstETH in the Prisma Finance pool, suggesting significant involvement.

PRISMA Token’s Rollercoaster Ride

Despite the unprecedented surge in TVL, the platform’s native token, PRISMA, witnessed a drastic decline of over 78% in the last 24 hours. The sharp decline in PRISMA’s value poses questions about the sustainability of the surge and the potential implications of Sun’s involvement in the platform’s dynamics.

Prisma Finance operates as a decentralized borrowing protocol enabling users to generate a stablecoin, mkUSD, collateralized by liquid staking tokens. Additionally, the protocol reportedly offers multiple layers of security, including a Stability Pool comprising mkUSD and a network of borrowers acting as collective guarantors, reinforcing the platform’s stability.
