This proposal presents Aave the opportunity to onboard YFI to the Ethereum v3 Liquidity Pool.
Yearn is a decentralised suite of products helping individuals, DAOs, and other protocols earn yield on their digital assets. YFI was originally listed on Aave v1 and included on Aave v2 when it was launched in late 2020.
Any YFI nominated revenue could be converted to veYFI, if Aave chooses, and be used to participate in Yearn Finance’s tokenomics. The staked aToken being developed by @AaveLabs enables Yearn’s vaults to be integrated as collateral and the veYFI holding could be used to boost rewards if Aave elects to do so.
This ARFC is a joint effort with ACI and 3SE to allow a selection of v2 listed assets to be onboarded on V3 via the governance process. Subject to a favourable Snapshot vote, @Llamaxyz will submit an AIP for voting.
Yearn Finance is the market leader for yield aggregation with $471m in TVL across four deployments and is ranked 22nd on the Defi Llama TVL dashboard. There is a little over $6m of deposits in the frozen YFI reserve on Aave v2 Ethereum. YFI is not currently listed on either the USDC or ETH Compound v3 liquidity market.
With the deployment of the staked aToken, there is the potential to integrate Yearn’s vaults as collateral. This is not likely to be realised in the short term. However, it is possible and something for the Aave community to consider at a later date.
The risk parameters provided within are the same as those provided by Gauntlet within the initial forum post discussing which assets to onboard to Ethereum v3.
The interest rate provided in the proposal mirrors the v2 deployment with exception of the parameters specific to stable interest rates. The stable rates proposed are the somewhat generic listing rates as stable borrowing is disabled. However, if stable borrowing was enabled, the suggested parameters are suitable and don’t create any undesirable dynamics between stable and variable rates.
We note that this proposal is to be reviewed by Gauntlet, with feedback incorporated, prior to progressing to Snapshot.
