  • In the last 24 hours, AAVE’s value increased by 13%.
  • The trading volume of the cryptocurrency also saw an increase of 123%.
  • This can be attributed to the announcement that Aave will launch an overcollateralized stablecoin GHO.

Aave AAVE/USD is a decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol that lets people lend as well as borrow cryptocurrencies.

Within this system, lenders can earn interest through the process of depositing digital assets into specifically created liquidity pools, and borrowers can use the crypto as collateral in order to take out flash loans.

AAVE is the native cryptocurrency token that powers this protocol and provides holders with access to discounted fees on the platform, and can be used throughout the governance process.

The launch of an overcollateralized stablecoin as a catalyst for growth

Aave has unveiled its plans toward launching an overcollateralized stablecoin called GHO.

However, this is currently subject to the community DAO’s approval.

The announcement was originally made by Aave Companies, which is the centralized entity that supports the Aave protocol.

According to the announcement, they said: “We have created an ARC for a new decentralized, collateral-backed stablecoin, native to the Aave ecosystem, known as GHO.”

GHO would essentially be an Ethereum-based and decentralized stablecoin that is pegged to the U.S. Dollar (USD), which can be collateralized with multiple assets that the users pick.

As a means of getting GHO, users need to mint the stablecoin against their deposited collateral.

The list of supported collateralized assets, as well as the collateral ratio, is not yet detailed.

The proposal also states that 100% of the interest payments that are accrued by GHO minters will be “directly transferred to the AaveDAO treasury; rather than the standard reserve factor collected when users borrow other assets.”
