40.3% Utilisation, generating $10.8m of estimated interest for depositors
$339m of Flash Loan volume, generating $305k of fees for depositors
$2.5m liquidated, generating $145k of fees to liquidators
$1.3m for the ecosystem collectors now holding $33.6m
$12.5m generated by the protocol this week
With an additional $4.5m $StkAAVE, $3.0m $WMATIC & $6.6m $WAVAX distributed

Aave Grants DAO update 🏗

@ETHGlobal's last event of the year, Web3Jam kicked off on November 12th. You can follow along on ethglobal.tv and if you're participating, happy hacking!
Our first POAP contest wrapped up this week and the winner was Discord user, omahs#0192. See the design below 👻 Future Snapshot authors can access the Figma link here and add it to their Snapshot vote! Thank you to everyone who submitted designs and voted.
State of the protocol 📰
The Snapshot vote for community backing to deploy Aave V3 received 100% support 🥳
One feature of Aave V3 is Portal that makes it possible for any EVM compatible chain to join the Aave ecosystem. This could include Solana, where progress is being made to build a Solana EVM. Stani was quoted in the article saying, "the ability to finally use Solidity smart contracts to access the Solana ecosystem is a game-changer for us, and will drastically improve time to deployment."

Q2 Dynamic Risk Parameters | Governance discussion | A proposal from Gauntlet to renew their "Dynamic Risk Parameters engagement for continuous market risk management to optimize yield, capital efficiency, and mitigate depositor losses" for another quarter, failed to pass. Gauntlet noted that some token holders had difficulties voting. On the governance forum, the main issue raised was around the cost. Look for details on next steps coming from Gauntlet this week.
Risk Parameter Updates 2021-11-04 | Snapshot vote | Governance discussion | As part of Gauntlet's ongoing risk monitoring this AIP changes 7 parameters across 5 Aave V2. Read more in last week’s Risk 🔎 section.
Polygon Market - wMATIC Risk Parameter Changes | Governance discussion | A proposal to adjust the LTV and Liquidation Threshold for MATIC on the Polygon market
🗳 Voting is live from November 15th to 18th
Should Aave V3 be released? | Governance discussion | The vote to signal community approval for Aave V3 received unanimous support
Add support for Terra USD (UST) | Governance discussion | A proposal to add UST to Aave V2 received 93% no votes. The main concern raised was that the risk parameters were too aggressive. Anjan from ParaFi expressed their support in the governance forum and provided a set of less aggressive parameters that could be included in a new Snapshot vote.

Multi token liquidity incentives. V3 will enable multiple assets to be rewarded as liquidity incentives giving Aave governance more flexibility, especially once your favourite rollups start releasing tokens 👀
