AAVE collateral

I am aware I am being pushy but I believe the community sentiment and agreement to move forward on AAVE as collateral is in favor?

At minimum AAVE works like LEND in the collateral position;

  1. Enable AAVE collateral (same parameters as LEND 50% LTV, etc)
  2. Enable - Deposit AAVE, receive aAAVE
  3. AAVE cannot be borrowed
  4. Create a script to convert aLEND to aAAVE for those assets already obligated/deposited as collateral
  5. Stkaave, Aave and aAAVE = voting power

Are we missing something?

What are we waiting for? @stani

I have mentioned it before but I think its needed soon. At the moment LEND is more useful because it can be used as collateral. Would love to have staking rewards and collateral use with AAVE tokens. Could it get made into governance proposal #2?

Agreed this is a no brainer. Why aren’t we moving forward with this ASAP? There is a risk that with thin and reducing supply of LEND not being converted directly from aLEND to aAAVE that short sellers can borrow and dump on thin order books on exchanges. Disaster waiting to happen in this market environment…

Just have some patience. It’s coming in the same time than the V2.

To migrate and reduce capability/use case to the token holders, to now being a multi week, or month AIP vote with no action is silly.

The polling on adding AAVE as a collateral happened here: Aave Protocol Token Addition - Community Sentiment Poll

The polling was positive.

The next step accordingly to the AIP process is to create an AIP (already in creation) and then the official voting that starts soon. The vote will be with payload, which means that successful outcome will execute the code and AAVE will be listed as collateral in the protocol.

Appreciate this insight and communication, what is the norm for notifying the community that these proposals are being taken on for AIP consideration? Is it the sentiment vote is the precursor? Is there follow up to notify the community that there is a successful sentiment vote and work is being constructed in support thereof?

I feel like there is a gap in comms with setting the expectation with the community on what is in work, going to be an AIP, or not, etc. are these being discussed elsewhere that aren’t on this forum with further information?

I am certain you are very busy, but I cannot find a definitive process that outlines what exactly constitutes taking and idea to fruition. Again, I might be missing it but want to make sure it is clear for all to help drive and participate in the Governance of the platform. If it’s something I need to read, let me know that too! TY.
