The Ethereum restaking protocol, Symbiotic, has achieved a total value locked (TVL) of over $1 billion just one month after its launch. The platform has garnered community attention, positioning itself as a direct competitor to EigenLayer, the leader in restaking terms.

Symbiotic, launched on June 11, has experienced explosive growth. It managed to triple its TVL in just 24 hours, jumping from $314 million to over $1.037 billion on July 4th. The sudden increase was largely attributed to the decision to increase deposit limits in several of its restaking pools, which attracted a wave of new investor funds keen on maximizing their Ethereum returns.

While EigenLayer remains the clear leader with a TVL of $16.83 billion out of a total of $18.98 billion across all restaking protocols, it has seen a decrease in TVL by 5.29% in the last week and 13.62% in the last month. Its decline has opened the door for Symbiotic to emerge as a viable and competitive alternative.
