[TEMP CHECK] Aave V3 Deployment on GnosisChain

Title : [TEMP CHECK] Aave V3 “MVP” Deployment on GnosisChain

Author : Marc Zeller @marczeller - Aave Chan Initiative

Date : 2023-08-16


This TEMP CHECK proposes the deployment of an Aave V3 pool on GnosisChain. The assets considered for this deployment include wETH, wstETH, GNO, USDC, wxDAI, and EURe.


Aave & GnosisChain with the upcoming deployment of GnosisPay L2 payment system and GnosisCard product have strategic synergies opportunities. Allowing users to “deposit as collateral, borrow and spend with Gnosis” seamless and near-zero fees experience.

GnosisChain has been a historic actor in the ecosystem, with its roots tracing back to the POA network.

This proposal builds upon the precedent of synergies between the Aave codebase and the gnosischain as illustrated by the friendly fork RMM Market with RealT, as seen here.

This “MVP” deployment opens the gates for deeper synergies between the Gnosis & Aave ecosystems in the future.


The proposed deployment on GnosisChain will include the following assets:

Risk Parameter wETH wstETH GNO USDC wxDAI EURe
Isolation Mode NO NO YES NO NO NO
Enable Collateral YES YES YES YES YES NO
Emode Category N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A

Slope1 3.8% 3.8% N/A 3.5% 5% 5%
Slope2 80% 80% N/A 60% 60% 60%

Even if both assets currently lack the maturity to be considered, the ACI is supportive mid-term of adding both wGHO and sDAI onboarding in the GnosisChain V3 pool.

We’re supportive of this MVP and believe the assets proposed are a good starting point for this deployment!


The TEMP CHECK Snapshot was approved by governance.

This proposal will be escalated shortly to the ARFC stage.

The deployment of Aave v3 on Gnosis Chain (GC) is a strategic move. It will strengthen the GC DeFi ecosystem, as it is an important addition to Balancer, Backed, Aura, and many other protocols.

We agree that the current parameters are aligned with this “MVP”, and we look forward to an expedited GHO deployment at GC.

We are happy to see this has passed snapshot and will continue to support this in the following stages.
