The initiative proposed freezing the following markets: YFI, CRV, ZRX, MANA, 1inch, BAT, sUSD, ENJ, GUSD, AMPL, RAI, USDP, LUSD, xSUSHI, DPI, renFIL, and MKR markets on Aave V2 ETH. The summary of the proposal says:
"Given that the market situation of these assets is currently volatile, out of an abundance of caution, we recommend temporarily freezing the following markets."
The move comes a few days after the crypto community of MakerDAO, an issuer of a multi-collateralized stablecoin DAI, supported a proposal to remove the tokenized version of bitcoin issuer by Ren Protocol, renBTC, from its reserves of collateral assets.
MakerDAO said in a forum post that the reason behind the move is the uncertainty, which significantly increased for the Ren project after Alameda Research went bankrupt. RenBTC is a wrapped version of bitcoin (EXANTE: Bitcoin) developed by Ren Protocol, which was acquired by Alameda Research in early 2021.
