Interesting stats, can you compare the amount of OP received to relative and absolute growth in protocols to see which ones delivered more bang for the buck?

We have already analyzed these. Most of the protocols received similar sizes in RPGF.

Kromatika’s TVL is the only notable outlier in terms of bang per buck. They also received the smallest RPGF size in the data we have.

Note: In the sectoral analysis, the charts have normalized growth which is growth per $1 RPGF received is plotted.
