[TEMP CHECK] CRVUSD Onboarding on Aave V3 Ethereum Pool

Title: [TEMP CHECK] CRVUSD Onboarding on Aave V3 Ethereum Pool
Author: @marczeller - Aave-chan Initiative
Date: 09-10-2023


This TEMP CHECK proposes the onboarding of the CRVUSD stablecoin, minted by the Curve Protocol, into the Aave V3 Ethereum pool.


CrvUSD is a USD-peg stablecoin minted by the Curve Protocol. While it’s relatively young, it has grown to a circulating supply of over $130M with strong peg resilience. Onboarding this asset into Aave will:

  • Reinforce synergies between Aave and Curve.
  • Offer Aave users an additional decentralized stablecoin option matching the ACI diversity support ethos.
  • Strengthen the relationship between the CRVUSD & the GHO stablecoins.

As the primary usecase for stablecoins is to be deposited by users looking for a passive yield and used as a borrowable asset and not as much as a collateral asset, the ACI proposes a CRVUSD onboarding outside isolation mode but without collateral properties.

Following CrvUSD maturity, the Aave governance can propose a collateral activation for crvUSD at a later stage.


Ticker: CRVusd
Contract address: 0xf939E0A03FB07F59A73314E73794Be0E57ac1b4E
Price Feed: 0xEEf0C605546958c1f899b6fB336C20671f9cD49F

We propose the following parameters for a crvUSD onboarding:

Parameter Value
Isolation Mode No
Borrowable Yes
Borrowable in isolation Yes
Stable Borrowing No
Collateral Enabled No
Supply Cap (CRVUSD) 60,000,000
Borrow Cap (CRVUSD) 50,000,000
Debt Ceiling N/A
LPF 10%
Base rate 0%
Slope 1 5%
Slope 2 80%
Optimal ratio 80%

Next Steps

  1. Gather community feedback on this TEMP CHECK.
  2. If consensus is reached, escalate this proposal to TEMP CHECK snapshot stage.
  3. If TEMP CHECK snapshot outcome is YAE, escalate to ARFC stage.
  4. If consensus on ARFC stage is reached and risk service providers provided feedback on risk parameters, escalate to ARFC snapshot stage.
  5. If ARFC snapshot stage outcome is YAE, escalate to AIP stage.

We support adding CRVUSD to Aave V3 Ethereum!

Onboarding diverse assets would attract diverse participants to leverage these assets in different ways using Aave.


We’re supportive of listing CRVUSD!


Supportive of adding this asset on Aave V3. Diversification for stablecoins is great for user but also for the protocol to generate more fees.


We support the addition of crvUSD to Aave V3 Ethereum!
