Aave (AAVE) is now available for buying, trading, and transferring – a welcome addition to the growing list of altcoins offered on the Voyager app!

Aave describes itself as an open-source and non-custodial liquidity protocol for earning interest on deposits and borrowing assets. Built on the Ethereum network, it was originally named ETHLend before evolving into Aave. The platform is centered around using DeFi protocols to allow for passive interest gain through lending and borrowing.

Simply put, by depositing assets onto the platform, users receive assets back through yields derived by current market demand. Users can also take out loans on the platform using asset deposits as collateral. Once their loans are paid back, their assets are unlocked for use again. Its native token, AAVE, was launched in 2020 as a means of self-governance.
