The basic form of the multi-chain competition pattern, the distinctive public chain competition is fierce

From the Footprint data, it can be seen that there are 11 public chains with TVL growth exceeding 100% in the past 30 days. Among them, the growth rate of Tron is as high as 1119%, ranking first in the growth rate. The current TVL is about 7.6 billion U.S. dollars, surpassing Polygon and ranking seventh in the public chain rankings; other public chains such as Fantom, Arbitrum, and Avalanche still maintain 100% The above growth rate.
