Several members of the community have sent LEND to the LEND contract address and AAVE to the AAVE contract address, resulting in permanent loss of funds.
Assets concerned :
LEND : 840048 tokens currently worth around 300k$ Link to etherscan
AAVE : 28054 tokens currently worth around 1M$ Link to Etherscan
Each of these transfers are a personal tragedy, and community discussions current consensus aims towards a “rescue” mission to allow these users to claim back their assets.
Feel free to consult the Main discussion thread on the topic.
On the technical and operating side, a viable solution would be to add a
retrieveStuckTokens() in the AAVE token contract, this method will be general-purpose and allow the users to retrieve any standard ERC-20 sent to the AAVE token contract address allowing to support the people that have made mistakes in the past and also support future issues.
The LEND token contract is immutable and can’t be modified in any way, a fitting solution would be to allocate a corresponding amount of AAVE from the lendToAaveMigrator contract to the users. This action will NOT result in AAVE token increased total supply as the corresponding amount of LEND will never be migrated to AAVE.
Implementing this would require a dedication of time and ressources from the Aave genesis team and a favorable AIP outcome to implement the changes to the token contracts.
Feel free to express your sentiment as community members in this Poll, a favorable outcome of this poll will result in the development of a solution and submission to the AAVE holders of a formal AIP proposal.
