The Aave protocol, which until now was available on the Ethereum and Polygon blockchains, has been integrated with the Avalanche blockchain, the project announced via its official Twitter account.
Last September 19, the crypto community responded affirmatively to a related request from the Avalanche Foundation following a vote. As a result, the deployment of C-Chain-based smart contracts and the activation of the liquidity mining program took place.
The process is coordinated by the custodians, who will subsequently hand over the keys to the Aave community.
