What Is Total value locked?

In decentralised finance, total value locked (TVL) refers to the amount of the assets locked in a protocol.

In traditional finance, the term used is Assets under management (AUM). However, because DeFi protocols are non-custodial and assets are always under the management of the users themselves, AUM term cannot be used.
