Special properties

Protocol revenue is revenue based on fees taken directly by the protocol and its token holders. The source mentions this works similarly to a stock buyback, as it decreased the amount of tokens in circulation. "Revenue" in DeFi consists of both "protocol revenue" and "supply-side revenue" - fees handed out to makers or liquidity suppliers

Supplementary notes

No figures were provided for the well-known dapps Uniswap, Balancer and Syntethix as these platforms do not have protocol revenue, e.g. all their revenue is going to their users.
