Request for comments 🗣
In an effort to better keep the Aave community informed of ongoing discussions in the governance forum, Aave News is adding a Request for comments 🗣 section.
Governance ⚖️ will focus on AIPs and changes to the governance process and tooling. Request for comments 🗣 will highlight active ARC in the governance forum. An ARC is an 'Aave Request for Comments' where the community is asked for their input on a potential governance proposal. An ARC is the first step in having an idea implemented in the protocol.
What else can we do to better keep the community aware of and engaged with governance discussions?
The following ARC have recently had active back and forth:
Add support for $FEI as a deposit currency | @joey__santoro is continuing the discussion including around seeding the market with 25 million FEI, changing the interest rate parameters, and potentially adding TRIBE incentives.
Aave Centrifuge Permissioned “RWA” Market Proposal | @Centrifuge is proposing to create a new permissioned Aave market for real world assets.
Aave Market Launch on Harmony | @lijiang2087 from Harmony wants to launch Aave V2 to their EVM compatible blockchain which has raised some security concerns from the Aave community.
Add support for DeFi Pulse Index (DPI) | @AlphaLemonade originally proposed adding DPI to Aave V2 in April. Discussion has continued since then, including questions around the multisig and permissions for minting new DPI.
Proposal to add support for renBTC | @MaxRoszko shares that the Ren protocol is about to undergo a key step towards decentralizing, which is also a big step for renBTC coming to Aave.
Provide better oracle mechanism for correlated assets | Governance user, pakim249, proposes using multiple price feeds for highly correlated assets to reduce the risk of unnecessary liquidations.
Sell Longs Through Aave | Governance user, ControlCplusControlV, proposes increasing the utilization of stablecoin pools by leveraging DeFi and allowing users to long the underlying asset.
Liquidation Bonus Updates | @inkymaze from Gauntlet proposes to reduce the liquidation bonus for 10 assets in Aave V2.
