Supernova DeFi Industry
The Aave project was launched in January 2020, evolving from EthLend, which in turn raised nearly $ 18 million in an initial coin offering (ICO) in 2017. In eight months, the project has developed into a leading platform with a wide range of different DeFi services, including crypto loans at fixed and floating interest rates and instant loans. The latter are very popular among arbitrage enthusiasts, since they give borrowers access to liquidity for hundreds of thousands of dollars in one ETH block (for about 15 seconds).
In addition, there is great interest in the credit delegation feature, which allows registered members to borrow loans using third-party assets as collateral. Its popularity skyrocketed when DeversiFi, a decentralized crypto exchange, borrowed more than $ 200K in Wrapped Bitcoin against collateral provided by Aave users..
Core features helped Aave raise over $ 100 million in its first six months. Then, in just two months, this amount increased tenfold and exceeded $ 1 billion..
The fun is just beginning

After the launch of Aavenomics, existing Aave protocol tokens will be converted to AAVE at a 100: 1 ratio, and their holders can use them as insurance against potential losses on the side of the liquidity provider. In addition, AAVE holders will be able to participate in decision-making regarding the operation of the protocol and receive a percentage of commissions on the platform..
In August, Aave announced the launch of Aave V2. The second version of the platform is currently at the stage of auditing smart contracts. It will support margin trading and voice delegation. Moreover, borrowers and lenders will be able to swap tokens used as collateral for debt positions..
