Spotlight: GHO Explainer Videos 🔦
After the release of GHO on Testnet last week, Cryptoversidad shared a series of five explainer videos in English and Spanish. Check them out on Youtube or Lenstube! The series includes an overview on stablecoins, an introduction to GHO, and an explanation of facilitators, the risks and the value of GHO. GHO give them a watch!
Aave governance continued to see a ton of activity. rETH went live on v3, bgdlabs shared a proposal for EIP-4626 compliant stataToken (static aToken), and conflicting views arose on the discussion and vote to list sfrxETH from Frax Protocol, among other governance discussions, proposals and votes. See a full overview by Boardroom in Governance ⚖️
One of the more engaging discussions on the forum this week is around how Aave DAO should deploy the aCRV it has earned. Llama started the discussion and outlined two options: locking CRV for veCRV via Curve Finance or staking CRV on Yearn for st-yCRV. Several community members then proposed sdCRV by StakeDAO as a third option. Llama shared their thoughts, maintaining that veCRV or st-yCRV are better options for Aave DAO.
