๐Ÿ€ DAO Membership Proposals thread

  1. What have you worked on/how have you contributed to the Web 3.0 ecosystem?

Hello everyone! I am Pablo from Aave team and Iโ€™m applying on behalf of Aave, the open source and non-custodial protocol for money market creation on Ethereum. This January we released Aave Protocol on mainnet, with the Aave Market where depositors can earn interest by providing liquidity to lending pools, while borrowers can obtain loans by tapping into these pools with variable and stable interest rate options. Just last week we released the second money market on Aave to boost DeFi composability: the Uniswap Market, where users can borrow against their Uniswap liquidity provider tokens. We just surpassed $100M market size only 6 months after going live, a record for the DeFi ecosystem.

  1. Why do you want to join MetaCartel DAO?

Decentralization is the foundation of what we do at Aave, and we are big supporters of DAOs. The Ethereum community is extremely interconnected, and weโ€™d like to build out these connections and strengthen not just the DeFi ecosystem, but Ethereum as a whole. We had a great experience being part of the MetaCartel Dragon Quest hackathon, and weโ€™d love to be a part of MetaCartel DAO.

  1. What is your pledge size? (min 10 ETH, max 100 ETH)

50 ETH

  1. What else should we know about you?

Aave has been around since 2017โ€”it was originally called โ€œETHLendโ€, and it was the first decentralized peer-to-peer lending platform on Ethereum. We rebranded to Aave when we switched from a peer-to-peer model to a lending pool model. We also have our own grants program for projects that contribute to the Aave or overall DeFi ecosystem: https://medium.com/aave/aave-ecosystem-grants-88260ede1485

What have you worked on / how have you contributed to the Web 3.0 ecosystem?

In recent years I have worked on projects in very different areas within the Web 3.0 ecosystem, from consulting to open source projects. Currently, Iโ€™m working for a Telco on the blockchain infrastructure layer. My main focus is on generative art mixed with blockchain technology and on infrastructure.
Some of the project I worked on lately:
https://github.com/Art-Decode/network2network (1 place Polkadot Bounty program for visualization tools)
https://github.com/swisscom-blockchain/polkadot-k8s-operator
( Grant from W3F)

Why do you want to join MetaCartel DAO?

Iโ€™m very interested in experimental and early-stage projects, especially if related to art or infrastructure. Iโ€™d like to contribute whenever is possible (developing, supporting, or investing). If a project particularly draws my attention I might consider to joining it.
