Stacks price takes the Bitcoin cue

Standing among the Bitcoin L2 (L2) tokens, Stacks price has soared over 15% on Tuesday. As a BTC L2, it enables smart contracts and decentralized applications to use Bitcoin as a secure base layer. One sector peer for STX is Rootstock (RSK), with both tokens boasting double-digit gains.

For Stacks, there has been an epic surge in total value locked (TVL) as the Bitcoin market records heightened capital inflows. Data according to DeFiLlama shows a 23% increase in TVL from $114.08 million to an all-time high of $140.46 between February 24 and 27, respectively.

STX TVL

For the layperson, a rise in TVL, effectively representing a rise in capital locked into a protocol, shows a growing user base and increased capital inflows. It also points to greater trust and confidence in the concerned protocol as users find value in the protocol and are open to locking their assets with that protocol.

With Glassnode reporting increased capital inflow into the Bitcoin market, the Stacks price could extend the gains to the $3,500 milestone. Already, STX has cleared its December 1, 2021 peak price of $3.2560, to record a new all-time high of $3.2687.

However, investors should also beware the risk of volatility, which could see Stacks price plummet, wiping out all the ground covered.
