Aave Chan Initiative Delegate platform

new short-term roadmap



Hi everyone,

My name is Xavi, and I’m excited to join ACI as its newest team member!

I’m very familiar with Aave and it’s ecosystem as I’ve worked at Aave companies last year, starting from the ground, with special focus in community. I’m also a lawyer & entrepreneur irl and that background has helped me in understanding better how DeFi works.

My main focus will be to help ACI by sharing all ACI activity, as well as general governance, for users, delegates and anyone to have a comprehensive summary of monthly activity in Governance and KPI. I’ll also help ACI build relationships with ecosystem partners, and keep representing ACI.

Shortly I’ll start being active in the Governance Forum, and I’ll start by sharing monthly reports on ACI activity in Governance.


Structure & Format for Monthly Reports:

From now on, as an exercise in transparency and convenience for Forum users and readers, we will share a monthly report featuring the key highlights of the month. ACI has created an external page where all Governance and ACI activity can be retrospectively reviewed, starting from February 2023.

Every month, in this same format, we will provide a summary and share the detailed guide for the month, following the structure below:

:rocket: Month Highlights

  • X [TEMP CHECK] Snapshot
  • X [ARFC] Forum
  • X [ARFC] Snapshot
    • ACI voted on X (X YAE/NAY/ABSTAIN)
  • X [AIP]
    • ACI voted on X (X YAE/NAY/ABSTAIN)
    • X written by ACI
  • X Others

Governance Activity

Inside Governance Activity, we will post & share all activity regarding:

  • Temp Check
  • Temp Check Snapshot
  • ARFC Forum
  • ARFC Snapshot
  • AIP
  • Other topics

Each activity/publication and governance step will be linked to corresponding page with detailed information to be accessed. At ACI, we want these reports to serve as a monthly TLDR of the activity taking place in this Forum and in the Governance of Aave, and we want to hear your feedback to improve them.

All this information will be available in an external page ACI has created for your convenience.

We will start sharing October 2023 activity.


Hi everyone,

Following our previous messages, let us share with everyone October’s Highlights.

:rocket: October’s Highlights

  • 5 [TEMP CHECK]
  • 3 [TEMP CHECK] Snapshot
    • ACI voted on 3 (3 YAE)

Hi everyone,

We are happy to share that ACI has succesfully managed to list, in collaboration with Coingecko, all Aave V3 Markets aTokens in their site.

We believe this may be useful for users to have some visibility when checking basic information such as price feed, chains available, etc.

*Disclaimer: Please bear in mind that there are still some work to be done by Coingecko on some aToken in Gnosis, Metis, OP and AVAX, so if you see that in those chains for certain assets, the information is only being displayed as “Preview Only”, that’s correct at the time being, and eventually, will be fixed.

That’s all for now, stay tuned for more updates!

Hello frens,

Following previous messages, we’re happy to share November 2023 Highlights, and a comparison with October 2023.

From now on, we will share at the beginning of each month, a report of the previous month activity, as well as some KPI, and ACI public activity KPI related to Governance.

So with further delay let’s dig into November’s 2023 Highlights!

November 2023 Highlights

:rocket: November’s Highlights

  • 15 [TEMP CHECK]
  • 7 [TEMP CHECK] Snapshot
    • ACI voted on 7 (5 YAE, 1 NAY and 1 Abstain)
  • 36 [ARFC] Forum
    • 10 Author - ACI
  • 15 ARFC Snapshot
    • ACI voted on 14 out of 15 (13 YAE, 1 NAY, 1 Abstain)
  • 31 [AIP]
    • ACI voted on 30 ( 29 YAE, 1 NAY, 1 Didn’t vote)
    • 10 AIP Author - ACI
  • 6 Other

We are proud to state that November 2023 has been the most intense month of activity so far this 2023 with a record of 31 AIP, and 36 ARFC Forum posts. This is translated into a frenetic month in terms of governance, with lots of activity in all stages ( Temp Check, Temp Check Snapshot, ARFC, ARFC Snapshot & AIP), and all stakeholders participating into governance decision.

*To calculate this report, it has been taken into account as effective date, the start date of the stage, so there are a couple of AIP for example that are active, but were launched in November.

If we enter into October & November comparison:

General Governance KPI 10/23 vs. 11/23

We can see in a more visual image that there’s been an overall increase in governance this November 2023 compared to October, with 3x more Temp Checks, 2X Temp Check Snapshots, 16 more ARFC, a stability in ARFC Snapshots, and 6 more AIP.

If we also extract ACI public activity and compare it:

Captura de pantalla 2023-12-02 a las 0.46.41

We voted 2X more in Temp Check Snapshots, kept the same amount of ARFC authorship, voted same amount of ARFC Snapshots (15), had 1 more AIP authorship than October 23 and voted in 5 more AIP.

You can check in more depth all governance/forum activity at November’s 2023 Highlights.
For example, if you click the toggle on [Temp Check] Forum, you will see all Temp Checks numbered, a link to forum post, and a summary of the Temp Check. The same applies to the rest of the categories.

Temp Check Toggle example

And that would be all November 2023 Report!

**Please bear in mind that you also have available all monthly highlights since February 2023 in the following Aave DAO & ACI Governance Activity Page:


That’s all for now, stay tuned for more updates!

Hello frens,

Continuing with ACI’s effort to increase visibility when checking basic information such as price feed, chains available, contract addresses, etc for assets in Aave Markets, we’re happy to share that in collaboration with Etherscan, we have updated Aave V3 Market aToken information in their site.

This is a strategic movement, alongside previous Coingecko listing, to help Aave users, when they need to check data, to rely on trustable sources as Etherscan and Coingecko for price feed, contract addresses, etc.

That’s all for now, stay tuned for more updates!

Hello frens,

First of all, we wish you an excellent & Happy New Year! Hopefully this year will be better than 2023 :smiley:

As we are entering the first month of the year, it’s a great moment to look back into what happened in terms of activity of ACI during December 2023, specially with new V.3 Governance and its consequent governance embargo, and the last Quarter of 2023.

(If you want to check any of the previous AIP you need to go Governance V.2)

We will have to wait a few more days before governance is lifted up, but in the meantime, we are sharing December 2023 Report.

Obviously since embargo came effective around 22th December, there’s been a pause in new TEMP CHECK, ARFC, Snapshots and and AIP.

Paused governance for V3

That is translated into a small decrease in activity compared to November 2023, which, in counterpart, does not represent the very intense month that has been making sure everything was ready to Gov. V.3.

December 2023 Highlights

:rocket: December’s Highlights

  • 5 [TEMP CHECK]
  • 3 [TEMP CHECK] Snapshot
    • ACI voted on 3 (0 YAE)
  • 16 [ARFC] Forum
  • 10 [ARFC] Snapshot
    • ACI voted on 9 out of 10 (9 YAE)
  • 25 [AIP]
    • ACI voted on 25 (24 YAE)
    • 7 written by ACI
  • 2 Other

If we take a look at 4Q 2023 and compare each month, in general terms there’s a small decrease due to embargo but pace was very good as December was from 01/12 to 22/12 and on the other hand we had several challenges that implied maximum participation and we’re proud of Aave DAO and it’s strengh, such as Governance V3 Activation with more than 1,122,272 votes and not a single NAY vote.

Q4 2023

Hope you find this information useful, for now thats all frens, and Happy New Year again!


Hello frens,

Time flies, and first month of the year has passed already!

In this occasion, it’s important to point out that V.3 Governance was launched after governance embargo, and so far it’s been an amazing journey, with plenty of governance activity.
Remember, if you still want to check any of the previous AIP you need to go Governance V.2

We had a first days of January that embargo was still active so ion paper that should have meant there’s a bit less of governance proposals, but on the contrary.

Sharing January 2024 Report

Let’s dive in!

Captura de pantalla 2024-02-01 a las 16.00.29

We had an increase in Temp Checks, Temp Check Snapshots, ARFC and ARFC Snapshots, with a slightly decrease in AIP due to embargo and new v.3 version.

Captura de pantalla 2024-02-01 a las 15.51.50

Most relevant proposals to point out are:

You can of course get into much more detail in January 2024 Report

That’s all for now, thank you for delegating into Aave Chan Initiative (ACI) and stay tuned for more updates!


Hello frens,

Time to post our report from February, with intense activity as always.

As you already know, we’ve been already under V.3 Governance for a bit, and February 2024 has been a good month when it comes to governance activity.

Please remember that if by any chance you still want to check any of the previous AIP from 2023 and before Gov V.3 you need to go Governance V.2 .

Here you’ll find February 2024 Report

Let’s dive in!

Captura de pantalla 2024-03-01 a las 11.20.38

We had a bit of a decrease in Temp Checks and of course Temp Check Snapshots as a result of focusing on moving forward with existing proposals, but on the other hand the number of ARFC and ARFC Snapshots increased, with an important number of AIP that were published.

A summary of the most relevant proposals to point out are:

You can of course get into much more detail in February 2024 Report

Hello frens!

We do hope that you had a great Easter and a long weekend.

Now it’s time to take a look back to March 2024 as well as Q1 2024, for you to have the monthly report, and ACI governance actiivty!

March 2024 Report

Let’s dive in!

Captura de pantalla 2024-04-02 a las 9.22.50

Captura de pantalla 2024-04-02 a las 9.35.10

If we compare March with February, we observe that there’s been an overall increase in governance activity, mainly in TEMP CHECK and ARFC, that will translate respectively in an increase of ARFC and ARFC Snapshots during April.

There was a total of 13 TEMP CHECK, 7 TEMP CHECK Snapshots, 33 ARFC on Forum, 21 ARFC Snapshot, and 21 AIP.

If we take a look on all Q1 2024:

Captura de pantalla 2024-04-02 a las 9.38.26

In this image we can clearly appreciate the overall increase in TEMP CHECK(13) and ARFC (33), while Snapshots maintain the average amount, as well as AIP.

A summary of the most relevant proposals to point out, as well as actions are:

One of the biggest action was Merit Airdrop being live, first for WETH borrowers, where 280 WETH were airdropped, and then to GHO borrowers and stkGHO stakers, with 1M$.

Some press about Merit last week:

If you haven’t claimed yet or check if you did get rewards, you can do so at aavechan.com/claim.

You can of course get into much more detail in March 2024 Report

That’s all for now, thank you for delegating into Aave Chan Initiative (ACI) and stay tuned for more updates!


April 2024 Report

Hello frens, hope that you’re good!

As we enter into May, its a good moment to take a step back and take a look at ACI and governance activity during April 2024.

A month that had pretty interesting proposals to be discussed under governance ( that we will mention later in this thread) but in general, an intense month with an outstanding record of 40 ARFC on Forum!

A reflection of how committed community, service providers, and holders are with Aave Governance and its decisions, and at ACI we’re proud to be the leading example by being one of the most active service providers.

Let’s take a closer look:

April 2024 Report

Captura de pantalla 2024-05-03 a las 10.50.37

Captura de pantalla 2024-05-03 a las 10.58.55

If we compare April 24 with its previous month, we observe a slight decrease in TEMP CHECK, but that’s understandable due to the amount of ARFC that were published as a result of moving forward with previous TEMP CHECK and TEMP CHECK Snapshots.

As per TEMP CHECK Snapshots, we had 7, same number, but where we saw a huge increase and a record so far was in ARFC posted on Forum, for a total of 40, that will be translated into an increase in May for ARFC Snapshots and AIP.

Of course you can always get access to full report by entering at April 2024 Report.

For those who don’t have the time to read all governance activity, here’s a TLDR:

  1. Introducing “FastPass” - A Safety Module Update
  2. GHO Cross-Chain Rollout Plan - First Network
  3. GHO Stewards - Adjustments GHO Borrow Cap
  4. Chaos Labs Engagement Amendment
  5. “Merit is Forever” Reward System Program Extension
  6. April Finance Update
  7. Onboard New Risk Service Provider

Lastly, please remember to claim your rewards under Merit program if you borrowed GHO, staked GHO or borrowed WETH.

You can do it through ACI Dashboard, where you have available information, and you can see your last round APR, current APR, and much more information!

We encourage you to use the site as well as https://dapps.aavechan.com/ as ACI has put a lot of work and love to make governance and delegation easier.

That’s all for now! Stay tuned for more updates!
