This publication presents the community an opportunity to add gmETH on the Arbitrum Aave v3 Liquidity Pool.


GMX Protocol is the largest DEX offering derivatives and one of the most popular DeFi’s today. The introduction of several new features and integration with Chainlink Data Stream in GMX V2 has significantly reduced the risks of front-running and price manipulation compared to GMX V1. gmETH is a ETH-USD’s Liquidity Token on the GMX V2 and earn fees from leverage trading, borrowing fees and swaps.

Integrating gmETH as collateral asset in the Aave V3 Arbitrum Pool has the potential to create new demand for borrowable assets on Aave V3.

do we have guidelines on minimal requirements an asset needs to have before they have a chance at being listed? As I understand things, any asset can be listed safely with the appropriate conservative parameter settings. Of course we do not do this for a variety of reasons. But having clear guidelines for such listings would be great for transparency and for cutting down on potential governance posts for assets that have no chance of making it.
