Aave RetroPGF Discussion

Hey everyone,

Announcing an initiative FireEyes is pushing forward that we’d love Aave to play a role in!

In the past few months, :fire:_ :fire: has been watching the impact of the latest retro PGF round for Optimism and how this has created a massive increase in incentivization, innovation, and community engagement within the Optimism ecosystem.

We want to see this impact delivered to other projects, and given the relationship between :fire:_ :fire: and Aave, we want this post to start a community discussion on running a similar round for Aave.

The reason that we bring this forward is to be able to reward the builders and community members who have utilized the Aave protocol already and help to show people who are considering starting to contribute that the DAO may continue to incentivize this value provision in the future!

Here’s the article where these ideas are outlined in more detail and where different strategies for distribution and voting are outlined, obviously each protocol is different and we should take purposeful steps to make sure each retroPGF round is as high impact as possible.

So with that said, how could we maximize impact to Aave with a retroPGF round, and what considerations should we make as we build out a proposal for this idea.

Why or why not?!

This post aims to serve as a conversation starter around retroPGF mechanisms and how they could be applied to the Aave community. If you’re interested in joining this discussion please post your thoughts below and we can build a discussion from there!


Following up here - Think Aave is incredibly well positioned from a community impact and financing perspective to run this experiment. Keen to dig deeper on possible mechanisms for distribution and amount of AAVE tokens to propose.


if i do understand this thread and its goal correct, then i can say that the DAO already has something similiar established, being called “Orbit” see here [ARFC] Expansion of “Orbit” - A DAO Funded Delegate Platform Initiative - Governance - Aave.

Correct me if im wrong.
