[ARFC] Onboard ETHx in Aave V3 Arbitrum Market and set ACI as Emissions Manager for rewards

Author: ACI (Aave Chan Initiative)

Date: 2024-07-04


This ARFC proposes the addition of the liquid staking token ETHx from Stader to Aave V3 Arbitrum and making ACI the emissions manager.


ETHx represents Stader’s staked ETH, providing users with liquid staking benefits. Supporting ETHx on Aave V3 continues our advocacy for LST diversity on Layer 2 networks. Stader is in the process of conducting liquidity mining campaigns on both Aave v3 Ethereum and has plans to incentivize liquidity on Arbitrum using their LTIPP ARB grant.

The proposal will also set ACI as Emissions Manager to partner with Stader in managing ARB distribution rewards, similar to the current program for SD incentives on mainnet.

The Aave Chan Initiative (ACI) multisig address eth :0xac140648435d03f784879cd789130F22Ef588Fcd

will be set as Emissions manager.

The call to the setEmissionAdmin() method in the emission_manager contract will be as follows:


This method will set the Aave Chan Initiative (ACI) wallet as the emission admin for the ETHx token on Aave V3 Arbitrum Market.
