Aave V3 is Now Available on Seven Public Testnets

Recently,¬†Aave¬†Governance voted in favor of a¬†proposal¬†to¬†implement¬†V3 of the¬†Aave¬†Protocol, which¬†brings updates and¬†new features¬†to the¬†Aave¬†smart contracts. Today,¬†Aave¬†V3 has been deployed¬†across¬†seven testnets¬†and is available¬†to try¬†here!¬†ūü•≥

Aave V3 is the result of continuous iteration, community feedback, and ecosystem growth. V3 builds upon the strong foundational elements of the Aave Protocol (e.g., aTokens, instant liquidity, stable rate borrowing, etc.) while introducing exciting improvements such as increased security and further enhanced decentralization.

The latest¬†features, such as Portal, create new use cases and opportunities for innovation from the community.¬†Now is the time for¬†builders, developers, teams,¬†and community members¬†to¬†start¬†testing¬†V3,¬†and¬†integrating and further¬†expanding¬†the¬†Aave¬†ecosystem!¬†¬†ūüĎĽ

Since its launch in January 2020, the¬†Aave¬†Protocol‚ÄĒan open source, decentralized, non-custodial liquidity protocol‚ÄĒhas¬†experienced¬†exponential growth¬†with peak liquidity reaching¬†over¬†USD¬†30¬†billion,¬†and¬†total¬†active users¬†totaling¬†nearly¬†one¬†million.

As¬†demand for decentralized finance¬†(‚ÄúDeFi‚ÄĚ) has grown, so too has the interest from¬†traditional¬†financial institutions. Several¬†fintechs,¬†hedge funds, family offices,¬†and asset managers have¬†expressed interest in using¬†a version of¬†the¬†Aave¬†Protocol¬†that¬†meets¬†their internal requirements.

Additionally, financial institutions ranging from bulge bracket investment banks, endowments, mutual funds, pension funds and even central banks have reached out to learn how the Aave Protocol and, more broadly, how DeFi works.
