What is Aave?

Aave is a decentralized finance protocol that lets people lend and borrow cryptocurrency. lenders earn interest by depositing digital assets into special made liquidity pools. Borrowers are then able to use their crypto as collateral to withdraw flash loans using this liquidity.

Aave has a wide variety of unique features that sets it apart when compared with competitors in an ever more crowded market. In the summer of 2020, during the DeFi craze, it was among the largest projects when it came to the total value of crypto locked in its protocol.

The project enables users to lend and borrow around 20 cryptocurrencies which means that users have more choice. Among the many key features of the project is “flash loans”. They have been described as the first uncollateralized loan option in the DeFi space. However, they must be paid back within the same transaction.

An additional feature of the project is how those who borrow through Aave can swap between fixed and variable interest rates. While fixed rates can offer some assurance about costs during periods of volatility in the crypto markets, variable rates can be useful when the borrower thinks that prices will drop soon.

Team

Aave and its forerunner ETHLend were both founded by Stani Kulechov. He was initially frustrated at the absence of lending applications on Ethereum, he built the project before the idea of DeFi came to fruition. 

Kulechov is a serial entrepreneur while also having spent time at law school, he also began programming when he was a teenager. He was one of the early adopters in the blockchain industry. He has said that he wanted to rebrand ETHLend as Aave so the project could provide a wider range of service that extends beyond Ether lending. Kulechov has stated that Aave’s main target market are the individuals who are involved in the cryptocurrency community already.
