The investment firms will now play an active role into growing Aave’s ecosystem via staking and governance.
Aave CEO Stani Kulechov said on the investment:
“Our focus has always been innovation and diligent risk management, which has got the attention of Framework Ventures and Three Arrows Capital. Their involvement will bring substantial expertise to scale the protocol for institutional usage and they will be helpful stakeholders within our community.”
Investment firm Framework Ventures is well-known known throughout the DeFi industry, helping in the growth of numerous popular DeFi startups such as Synthetix, Chainlink, and Kava and various other DeFi projects.
Moreover, ParaFi and Spencer Noon’s DTC Capital too invested in Aave and accumulated LEND token purchase of $4.5 million.
Its users can borrow or deposit numerous stablecoins including major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Basic Attention Token (BAT), and Chainlink (LINK).
With top-notch firms publicizing their token holdings along with the upcoming Aavenomics Upgrade, it’s clear that the protocol for money market creation has a very bright future ahead.
