Hackathons, Integrations, and Fresh New Features!
Hello Aave Community!
Spring has sprung! Flowers are growing at full force and so is our market size... we reached over $50M for the first time ever! We hope everyone is staying at home and keeping healthy, and we have more (online) events coming up to keep you busy—keep reading for a highlight reel of April at Aave and the scoop on what’s next 😊
Technical & Development Updates
The Aavengineers have had a busy month preparing to drop some fresh features, including a Token Burn Page, a liquidation page, and more! Catch up on the updates in our two-part blog series: part 1 and part 2.
Our Risk Management team also released a comprehensive Risk Framework that delves into the methodology for setting risk parameters, everything that is considered before adding a new currency, and a risk assessment for each asset in the protocol.
The Aave community speaks many languages and so do we— the Aave website and DApp have now been translated into Spanish, Italian, French, and Chinese!
If you want to build something awesome to contribute to the Aave Ecosystem, check out our Aave Ecosystem Grants program that launched this month! Beat the quarantine blues by building with us— you can start by jumping into our new developer documentation and join the #grants and #developer channel on our Discord.
