Spotlight: February Grantees 🔦
Big congrats to Projection Finance, CIAN, 1Delta DAO, DeFiSafety, Butter, Colledge, SlothyFi, Cetra Finance, Weave & Franklin DAO who have been officially announced as the latest cohort of Aave Grantees 🎉👻
Check out the unique yield strategies, a governance experiment, research, tooling, an innovative margin platform and other projects that each grantee is building along with a wider February update from Aave Grants.
After a successful governance vote, Aave v3 will be launching on Metis. This will mark the first new Aave v3 deployment outside of the original announcement and Ethereum mainnet.
As a part of the Arbitrum DAO airdrop, the Aave DAO received 2.7m tokens. A discussion is underway on the best way Aave DAO should utilize the funds.
See a full Governance recap from Boardroom below or check out the highlights here:
@bgdlabs introduced Aave Governance V3, and a good discussion is taking place.
BGD Labs also introduced the idea of Risk Steward contracts, as a pilot program to “simplify a lot of operational/governance overhead.”
@lajarre from Butter has announced the “eight candidates that have committed to running as delegates for the Aave Delegation Campaign”; the election, which is open to AAVE and stkAAVE holders, will run from April 3 - April 9.
@Llamaxyz has initiated a temp-check discussion about whether “entities can receive payment for being both a Service Provider and a Delegate Platform.”
Butter updated the community on their incentivized delegate campaign. Delegates include: ConsenSys, DAOStewards, Diego Ortiz, FireEyes 🔥_🔥, Flipside Governance, OnChainCoop, Oxytocin, StableLab, FranklinDAO and Wallfacer Labs. Read their latest update and be sure to participate in the election, running April 3rd though 9th.
