|Aave Considers Freezing BUSD Following NYDFS Enforcement
Members of the Aave community – a widely used decentralized lending protocol – are mulling a freeze on BUSD after a wave of regulatory pressure against its issuer, Paxos, on Monday.
A newly tabled governance proposal would freeze Aave’s BUSD reserve on its Ethereum market beginning in April, only allowing users to burn BUSD tokens for their underlying value.
The proposal in question was tabled by Marc Zeller – an Aave community member and founder of the Aavechan protocol delegate – on Monday. He argued that BUSD has “no real prospect of growth,” and that without the opportunity to mint new tokens, continuing to use it “might hurt peg arbitrage opportunity and asset peg.”
“It seems that the most reasonable path for Aave is to freeze this reserve and invite users to switch to another stablecoin among the diversity present in Aave,” he suggested.
BUSD is a stablecoin issued by Paxos that is backed 1:1 by U.S. dollars. Stablecoins are blockchain-based tokens price-pegged to traditionally price-stable assets, such as fiat currencies, to circumvent the volatility typical of other cryptocurrencies. They have a critical presence in the decentralized finance ecosystem, acting as a backbone for lending and trading markets.
On Monday, Paxos announced that it would stop minting new units of BUSD starting February 23, following orders from the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDF...

Aave Companies, the firm behind the decentralized finance (defi) project Aave, has announced the launch of a stablecoin called GHO on the Ethereum testnet network Goerli. The codebase is available on Github and has undergone audits by Open Zeppelin, Sigmaprime and ABDK.Aave Invites Programmers to Test GHO Before Mainnet Deployment
On Thursday, Aave Companies announced the launch of its native stablecoin GHO on the Ethereum Goerli testnet. The company also released the open-source codebase on Github. The developers of Aave are inviting programmers and prospective integrators to begin testing GHO as it prepares for deployment on the Ethereum mainnet.
Three audits conducted by Open Zeppelin, Sigmaprime, and ABDK focused on the deployment of GHO. Upon its launch on the Ethereum mainnet, GHO will be similar to Makerdao's DAI token in that it will be overcollateralized and pegged to the U.S. dollar. Aave Version 3 (V3) does not permit flashloaning of the stablecoin. The community is being asked to consider adding a second facilitator, 'Flashminting,' at launch to address this issue.

|Is AAVE Price Close To Breaking Consolidation?
The AAVE price has recovered considerably since the beginning of the month. The coin was hovering around the $50 mark at the beginning of January and breached $90 very recently. It secured close to 70% appreciation.
At the moment, AAVE is trading laterally on its chart. In the last 24 hours, the coin fell by 0.9%, thereby confirming consolidation. The coin started to lose steam as the altcoin failed to cross the $91 price mark. The technical outlook depicted that the coin was still on the bullish side.
After a fall in accumulation over the last few days, the chart noted an uptick in demand at press time. This indicated that AAVE might be eyeing a break in its price consolidation. Over the last two weeks, the coin's price has fluctuated between $70 and $90, with the altcoin primarily trading above the $84 mark.
The altcoin depicted that the buyers were starting to rise again, which might push demand up and help AAVE break its immediate resistance. At the moment, AAVE is trading 88% below its all-time high secured in 2021.
AAVE Price Analysis: One-Day Chart
Aave was trading at $82 at the time of writing. The journey from $52 to $85 was smooth, after which it took AAVE some time to cross the $90 price level. Over the past few weeks, AAVE has broken past essential resistance levels.
Immediate resistance for the coin stood at $85; a move above that level may help the altcoin reach $90. On the flip side, support for the coin stood at $80 and $76, respectively.

|AAVE Seeks Proposal To Clear Itself Of Bad Debt – Can It Overcome ...
The lending platform AAVE has been enjoying positive news lately. According to reports, AAVE has passed a governance proposal that would eradicate all bad debt it accumulated when Avraham Eisenberg, orchestrator of the Mango Markets exploit, targeted the platform’s Ethereum V2 liquidity pool back in November 2022.
However, the governance token of the platform, AAVE, has not responded either positively or negatively. According to data from CoinGecko, the token registered losses in the daily and weekly time frames. But these losses are too miniscule to revert the token’s gains from the start of the year.
With the launch of AAVE’s V3 on its mainnet, the crypto might be in a position to tally new highs if the situation permits it.
The Gist Of The Proposal & On-Chain Developments
Based on the proposal, the token has over 2,677,749 units of CRV in debt on its Ethereum V2 CRV reserve. This is worth, at the date of the proposal, over $2.5 million. The proposal would use V2’s stablecoin reserve to buy the necessary number of units of CRV to pay the debt.
This obviously was accepted by the community positively, being implemented immediately by January 25th. This would reverse the damage of the exploit attempt, proving the liquidity of the protocol.
The deployment of AAVE’s V3 on Ethereum was also implemented. According to DefiLlama, the crypto is in the top 4 among all platforms. AAVE V3, the Ethereum pool deployment, has ove...

— Aave (@AaveAave) January 27, 2023
This upgrade came after the Aave community delayed the upgrade. Then, Aave developers assessed that immediately improving V2 Pools to V3 would not have yielded the desired level of compatibility with other Aave V3 pools running on Avalanche, Polygon, and Ethereum layer-2 platforms.
The current Aave V3 on Ethereum has been reworked. It is negligibly complex and more compatible with other Aave V3 pools outside of Ethereum.
The transition to Ethereum, expanding Aave's presence in top blockchains, didn't immediately affect its total value locked (TVL). Data show that it is 2% lower in the past 24 hours. However, TVL is up 24% in the last month, rising to $4.56 billion as of the time of writing on January 27, according to data...
|Aave Price Surges As V3 Cloud Upgrade Draws Near
Amid the ongoing rally in DeFi TVL, we’ve seen positive news and innovation popping up from the ecosystem. As the Aave protocol V3 cloud upgrade draws near, its native token, Aave, has skyrocketed since the beginning of this year, reaching higher highs for the first time in the last few months.
Aave is an open-source liquidity protocol and its upcoming V3 cloud launch is just one of the protocols pending plans yet to be initiated. An Aave supporter with the Twitter handle @0x4Graham disclosed the upcoming upgrade launch.
According to crypto reporter Collins Wu, the V3 upgrade will introduce cross-chain asset functions, community contribution tools, and a gas optimization model on the Aave protocol.
Aave Price Surges Nearly 37% In 7 Days
As the v3 cloud upgrade draws near, Aave’s native token has spiked in price by 36.5% in the past 7 days, following suit with other crypto and DeFi tokens surging in the market. Besides that, the past few weeks have seen Aave printing a bullish trend, in which the chart indicates anticipation before a significant move.
Aave began the year with a ranging price of $50, and so far, the token has spiked to above $80 following the disclosure of the v3 cloud upgrade. Moreover, not only is the Aave token surging, but the protocol’s TVL has also done some significant rallies to the upside over the past weeks.
Currently, Aave protocol has a cumulative TVL of $4.5 billion, up by 21% in one month. The protocol h...
|Aave Freezes Multiple Lending Markets Citing Volatility Concerns
The decentralized lending protocol AAVE has temporarily disabled its lending markets for multiple Ethereum-based tokens facing excess volatility and low liquidity.
The 17 frozen assets include various defi tokens that are competitors to AAVE, such as Compound (COMP) and Curve Finance (CRV).
On Sunday, Aave passed a near-unanimous governance vote to disable the markets, with only two votes against, and over 500,000 in favor.
In total, Aave’s frozen market list included the following: YFI, CRV, ZRX, MANA, 1inch, BAT, sUSD, ENJ, GUSD, AMPL, RAI, USDP, LUSD, xSUSHI, DPI, renFIL, and MKR.
Among those, 5 are dollar-pegged stablecoins, including sUSD, Pax Dollar (USDP), Liquidity USD (LUSD), Gemini Dollar (GUSD) and RAI.
The motion was proposed to mitigate risk “given that the market situation of these assets is currently volatile.”
Earlier this month, Aave faced a $60 million short attack on its CRV pool using USDC as collateral.
The attacker happened to be Avraham Eisenberg, the same person who exploited Mango Markets for $117 million in October, and who defended his actions as ethical in an uncensored interview.
Eisenberg ultimately failed in this attempt and lost $10 million in the process. Nevertheless, the financial modeling platform Gauntlet called for freezing certain Aave markets in the aftermath as a precaution.
“The Aave ecosystem was built with a number of mechanisms that the Aave community can deploy to cover event...
|Aave Price Recovers Back To $57, But Threat Of New Attack Looms Over Pro...
The Ethereum-based decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol Aave suffered an attack led by Avraham Eisenberg. The controversial individual was behind a sophisticated run against Mango Markets. The run has been called an attack by some and a clever strategy by others.
Aave (AAVE) trades at $57 with a 7% and 36% loss in the last 24 hours and the previous week, respectively. Curve Finance’s native token CRV was also part of the attack. This token has seen significant selling pressure in the short term but has been trending to the upside over today’s trading session.

Orchestrating An Attack On Aave, First Attempt? Rudy Kadoch, founder of the portfolio management project Nested, summarized yesterday’s event and the “Bad Debt” attack on Aave. According to this report, Eisenberg borrowed $83 million of CRV and used $50 million of stablecoin USDC as collateral on the decentralized finance platform.
Eisenberg published the thesis that supported this strategy in October 2022 via his Twitter account. It was public, and his objectives were perfectly outlined: to leverage his initial capital to influence the price of an illiquid token, such as CRV or Ravencoin (RVN), in hopes of creating “bad debt,” an excess liability assumed by the protocol.

This represents a major milestone for the sector that continues to see high demand and adoption despite the downside trend in the crypto market. Two years ago, the total value for the DeFi sector, as measured by the total value locked (TVL), was less than $5 billion.
In a short period, this metric will increase by over 20-fold, reaching an all-time high of around $170 billion by 2021, according to data from DeFi Llama. Today’s milestone marks a new era for the nascent sector and digital assets.

AAVE price started a major increase from the $65 support zone. It is up nearly 20% this week and might extend gains above the $85 resistance.
AAVE price gained pace after it surpassed the $75 resistance against the US dollar. The price is trading below $85 and the 100-day simple moving average. There was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $75 on the daily chart of the AAVE/USD pair (data source from Kraken). The pair could continue to rise and might soon test the $100 resistance zone. AAVE Price Starts Fresh Increase
After a steady decline, AAVE price found support near the $65 zone. The price formed a base above the $65 level and started a steady increase.
There was a clear move above the $72 and $75 resistance levels. The price climbed above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $116 swing high to $65 low. Besides, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance at $75 on the daily chart of the AAVE/USD pair.

AAVE breaches $77.53 level
This could be due to the general crypto market recovering too as of press time. Will this be for long term?
The coin has been generally bearish as it resist falling into the $74 level. Key support is now spotted at the $73.65 level and resistance is present at $77. 52.
Evidently, AAVE is seen to be moving downhill earlier as it failed miserably in breaching the $77.53 level. At this point AAVE is treading the bearish route for short term.
Judging by the 1-day price analysis, it is moving downwards as triggered by the uptick in selling pressure. If the selling pressure subsides, then AAVE price could shoot way up which is happening right now.
AAVE Price Climbs By 7.35%
According to CoinMarketCap, the coin's price has skyrocketed by 7.35% or trading at $79.64 as of press time which means it has successfully breached the $77.53 level that it has been trying to do so for the past couple of days.
The Bollinger Bands Indicator higher band is now seen at the $78.63 mark which is now the key resistance for AAVE while the lower band is seen at the $73.83 mark.

|Aave Pushes for Proposal to Support Ethereum PoS Exclusively
The Merge continues to be one of the most high-profile upgrades in recent times. But the retaliation is strong and has gained many allies. Those opposing keep reiterating their push for Ethereum to undergo a 'hard fork' after it transforms into a proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain next months.
Despite this, many protocols are looking to shift exclusively to the PoS version. One such is Aave.
As per its latest proposal, members of the DAO governing the open source liquidity protocol - Aave DAO - are set to review whether to head towards the new version of the Ethereum mainnet and turn down any forked versions that continue to use the PoW consensus mechanism. In short, the Aave protocol will be shut down on any forks arising from the Merge.
The proposal read,
'There is a general consensus from builders involved in the protocol’s development that it is effectively impossible to sustain a viable Aave Market on any Ethereum fork running an alternative consensus (such as Proof of Work).
To ensure the continued existence of the protocol for the community, the Aave DAO should consider signaling strongly that the Aave Protocol should commit to the Ethereum Mainnet, running under Proof of Stake consensus.'

MATIC was one of Friday's notable movers, as prices of the token rose for a fifth consecutive session. This came as crypto markets were mostly in the green for the majority of the day's session, with AAVE hitting a two-week high.
MATIC was a notable mover on Friday, as prices of the token rose for a fifth consecutive day of trading.
Prices rose to an intraday peak of $0.5933 earlier in today's session, hitting their highest level since June 26 in the process.
This move pushed the token close to its resistance level of $0.6000, with some bulls opting to liquidate positions around that region.
As seen from the chart, the last time prices traded around this ceiling there was a high level of uncertainty, and likely knowing this, bulls decided to secure gains at this mark.
If we were to see a move beyond this point, then it is likely that we would require an increase in relative strength, which is currently facing an obstacle of its own.
As of writing, the Relative Strength Index is tracking at 57.15, which is slightly below a resistance level of 57.50.
AAVE was also in the green during Friday's session, as prices rose to their highest point in over two weeks.
Following a low of $66.32 on Thursday, AAVE/USD rose above $70.00 on Friday, as prices of the token went on to hit an intraday peak of $74.94.

|Aave Proposes to Launch an USD-Pegged Stablecoin Called GHO
DeFi protocol Aave proposed to its community to create a USD-pegged stablecoin, GHO. The project would allow users to mint GHO against their supplied collaterals, with all the interest payments being sent to AaveDAO.
Backed by Multiple Types of Collaterals
Similar to the MakerDAO-issued stablecoin Dai, GHO would be minted based on users supplying a specific ratio of collaterals, according to the official blog post. When the borrowed amount is repaid, the protocol would burn the users' GHO accordingly. Moreover, the collateral assets deposited on Aave would continue to generate yield while also being used as collateral.
According to Aave, a GHO aToken and GHO Debt Token will be deployed to the protocol, following the same mechanisms as any other asset listed on Aave. This integration is designed to facilitate its growth within the Ethereum blockchain.
In the wake of the fall of Terra's algorithmic stablecoin, UST, the industry has been under pressure as the uncertainty regarding the underlying collateral of leading projects continues to rise. As such, ceiling caps on lending and borrowing are expected to be imposed as reducing risk is crucial to the project. During a market downturn, the protocol would implement the 'E-Mode' as a stabilizing factor amid high market volatility.
GHO demand increases as the price of collateral contracts and users borrow more GHO using other non-volatile collateral assets to repay their positions. This would increase the amount of GHO that enters ...
|Aave Broke Past Crucial Resistance, Which Way Is It Headed Now?
Aave managed to break past its crucial resistance of $104 over the last 24 hours. As the market demonstrated strength, altcoins across the industry attempted to move north. Bitcoin climbed above the $30,000 price level and this extended gains across the altcoin market.
At the time of writing, Aave was still quite close to the $104 price level which now acts as a support. The bulls need to amplify in order for the bearish thesis to be invalidated. Over the last week, Aave gained about 10% on its chart. A current fall in price will push the coin below the $103 support line.
Right now the coin has been facing strong resistance at the $108 price level. For the coin to trade in a bullish price action, it is important for Aave to trade above the $108 resistance level. If the coin doesn't manage to move above the aforementioned level then Aave might extend further losses.

ATOM was trading over 15% higher on Friday, as prices rose for a second consecutive session. Today's rise took ATOM to its highest point since the start of the week, and comes as AAVE neared a 10-day high.
ATOM was one of the biggest movers in Friday's session, as price climbed to its highest point since the beginning of the week.
Following a low of $10.55 on Thursday, ATOM/USD surged by over 15% on Friday, hitting a peak of $12.12 in the process.
The move comes as ATOM used yesterday's support point of $9.90 as a springboard to these heights, following a huge bearish drop the day prior.
Today's surge now sees prices approaching a ceiling of $12.35, which has been in place since May 11, following almost two weeks of declines.
Looking at the chart, after breaking out of one resistance level of 34, the Relative Strength Index is now tracking at 38, which is close to another ceiling at 40.
Should we see ATOM overcome this obstacle, then bulls will likely make a run toward the $15 mark during the course of the weekend.
AAVE also rose for the second session running, with Friday's gains pushing prices close to their highest level in nearly two weeks.
Today's surge in AAVE/USD, which is also over a 10% climb, saw prices hit a peak of $97.38 less than 24 hours after trading at $86.41.
Friday's top is the most AAVE has traded at since May 10, when prices dropped from highs above $120.

|Aave Launches Social Media Project Lens Protocol With Over 50 Apps Built...
The blockchain firm Aave has launched the Lens Protocol, a social media project with applications built on the Polygon blockchain. Lens is similar to the social media platform Twitter but Lens profiles are linked to a non-fungible token (NFT) that can be ported into decentralized applications.Lens Protocol Is Live – Aave Founder Believes People Are 'Ready for a Better Social Media Experience'
On Wednesday, the blockchain company Aave announced that the Lens Protocol is now live and roughly 50 applications have debuted on the platform. Aave first revealed the Lens Protocol during the first week of February 2022 and the first applications are built on top of the Polygon network.
Stani Kulechov, CEO and founder of Aave Companies said the recent Twitter ordeal with Elon Musk shows that people are looking for something different than the incumbent social media platforms. 'The social media experience has remained relatively unchanged for the last decade, and much of that is due to your content being solely owned by a company, which locks your social network within one platform,' Kulechov said in a statement sent to Bitcoin.com News.
The Aave founder added:
But ultimately, as seen from Elon Musk's bid to purchase Twitter, people are ready for a better experience than what they're used to. Ownership over not only the content you create online, but also your profile and social network is long overdue, and empowering users is what Lens aims to achieve.

|Biggest Movers: AVAX Rebounds on Tuesday, AAVE up Over 10%
Global crypto markets are up over 2% during Tuesday's session, with AAVE and AVAX two of the biggest tokens to rise. Both of these cryptocurrencies rebounded from losses during yesterday's session, with AAVE trading as much 10% higher.
AAVE rebounded during Tuesday's trading session, as bulls returned to action after a recent three-day winning streak was snapped yesterday.
Following a low of $82.02 to start the week, AAVE/USD rallied by as much as 10% today, hitting a peak of $92.16 in the process.
Today's move pushed prices away from the long-term support level of $80, and they now hover marginally below a resistance point of $94.
Bulls in AAVE seem to be targeting the $100 level, however we will likely not see a move towards this point unless the current ceiling on the RSI is broken.
Looking at the chart, the 14-day Relative Strength Index is tracking below a resistance of 36.30, which is the highest point the indicator has hit in the past ten days.
Overall, although prices are currently oversold, both the short and mid-term moving averages show that momentum is still bearish.
Similar to AAVE, AVAX saw its price climb higher on Tuesday, after a brief stint in the red to start the trading week.
AVAX/USD rose to a peak of $35.47 earlier in the day, which comes following a low of $32.22 during Monday's session.
As a result of today's move, AVAX is now trading marginally below a resistance level of $37.30, which appears to be the point bulls are t...
|Aave Below Its Long Term Support; What To Expect Now?
Aave has been on a downtrend since April amidst intense volatility in the market. Major altcoins have extended losses owing to a major sell off all across the cryptocurrency industry. Over the past week, the coin presented lower lows and displayed intense selling pressure.
The altcoin has also experienced high trading volumes which was tied with increased selling pressure. This has also added to the falling market value of the asset on the one day chart.
Fall from the current price level would mean Aave could soon eye the support region of $50. Aave has been among the top losers in the industry with a loss of over 51% in the past one week.
Aave Price Analysis: One Day Chart
Aave was priced at $74 on the one day chart | Source: AAVEUSD on TradingView
Aave was priced at $74.80 at the time of writing. The altcoin traded at this price level a year ago in January. The downtrend for Aave seems strong because the altcoin just broke below its long standing support line of over a year.
Chances of a price reversal cannot be ruled out yet because the altcoin has broken below its descending trendline. Often after a sharp fall, prices make a turn around. In case of a price revival, Aave could target $111.
Another fall from its present price level would make the altcoin trade near the $61 support line and then hover around the range of $50. As mentioned above, the trading volume rose and was seen in red signifying bearishness in the market.

|Luna Foundation to Lend $1.5 Billion in Bitcoin and UST to Market Makers...
As crypto markets continue to slide in value, concerns about the algorithmic stablecoin terrausd (UST) losing its $1 parity have swelled in recent times. Two days ago on May 7, 2022, UST dipped down to $0.985 per unit against tether (USDT), and the stablecoin's price drop invoked a great deal of speculation concerning UST losing its dollar peg. Following the drop on Saturday, the Luna Foundation Guard (LFG) revealed it was lending out millions of dollars worth of bitcoin and UST in order to protect the peg until market conditions normalize.Crypto Market Carnage Strains Algorithmic Stablecoin UST's Peg, Terra Supporters Claim Stablecoin Was Victimized by a 'Coordinated Attack'
Digital currency markets have suffered a great deal in recent times as billions of dollars have left the crypto economy during the last few weeks. Of course, crypto market mayhem typically pushes traders toward leveraging stablecoins in order to hedge their wealth from volatile market conditions. During the last few days, BTC has dropped from $40,000 per unit on May 4, to a low of $32,637 per coin on May 9. The entire crypto economy has followed BTC's freefall and the entire lot of 13,432 tokens in existence is down 5.5% against the U.S. dollar.
This has fueled trade volumes for tether (USDT), usd coin (USDC), and many other stablecoins including UST. However, UST had dropped in value on May 7, slipping to $0.985 per unit against tether (USDT). While this is not the biggest deal and many other stablecoin...
|Biggest Movers: APE up Almost 30%, ZIL and AAVE Among Wednesday's ...
APE was up close to 30% on Wednesday, as the recently listed token climbed to its highest point since it began trading on March 17. AAVE also saw a double-digit percentage increase today, whilst ZIL extended recent gains.
AAVE was up by nearly 10% in today's session, as prices rallied for a third consecutive session, following losses last week.
Tuesday saw AAVE/USD hit a low of $175.69, however today, prices surged to an intraday peak of $198.02.
This move saw AAVE climb to its highest point in two weeks, April 6 to be precise, where price was trading above $200.
Looking at the chart, this $200 mark has long acted as a resistance point, and this ceiling held firm today as bulls raced towards this level.
Bulls would have likely taken profits, as the 14-day RSI neared its own ceiling of 54.90, which hasn't been broken in over a month.
Should this ceiling be broken, there is a strong possibility that prices could be heading towards $240, which seems to be the next key resistance point.
Speaking about resistance, ZIL rose to its own ceiling during Wednesday's session, as traders extended yesterday's bullish momentum.
Following a bottom of $0.1097 yesterday, ZIL/USD hit an intraday high of $0.1237 on hump-day, which is its highest level since last Thursday.
This high was also marginally below its long-term resistance level at $0.1260, which was last broken two weeks ago.
Several false breakouts later, ZIL is now once again back to this point, and bulls have s...
|EverLend, First Lending Protocol on Everscale Network, Kicks off Operati...
EverLend.app is a secured lending protocol powered by Everscale. The platform was successfully launched on the 18th of March, 2022 together with its own utility token. The platform facilitates DeFi lending by hosting funding pools with interest rates based on Everscale's asset supply and demand algorithm.
EverLend.app is a protocol where users can play the role of provider, borrower, or both, and interact with each other within the protocol to earn or pay flexible interest rates. At its core, it is a secured lending platform that charges interest on the use of funds. The platform has been in development for more than 6 months by the SVOI.dev team.
Conceptually, EverLend was modeled on the market-leading Compound protocol. One of the goals in creating the project was providing end users with a simple and clear lending platform that would be comfortable to use. At the same time, the development team, together with the advisory team, revised some parameters of the original model (for example, the system security protocols) and finalized them for improvement. In addition, the implementation has been fully adapted to the specifics of the Everscale blockchain.
The project was launched on March 18, 2022 at 11 am Korean time (GMT+9).
It is important to note that a formal verification process for the project is currently underway in the format of an Everscale Contest. While contracts for the lending platform have already been launched prior to formal verification on the network, lim...
|Biggest Movers: ZIL Jumps on Metapolis News, as AAVE Almost 15% Higher o...
ZIL was on the rise yet again to end the week, as prices are now trading almost 300% higher than on Monday. The increase in value comes as markets gear up to the release of Zilliqa's metaverse service platform called 'Metapolis.' Many expect the official launch to come tomorrow, and anticipate it to be a game-changer in this space.
ZIL extended this week's gains, climbing by as much as 14% today, taking its one-week price increase to over 300%.
Surges in the price of the Zilliqa token came as markets anticipated a new product launch that would adapt a metaverse-as-a-service model.
Bulls have bought into the idea, with ZIL/USD climbing to an intraday high of $0.2281 on the news.
This is the most ZIL has traded since May 10 last year, and comes as the 14-day RSI continues to track off the charts.
As of writing this, the indicator was tracking at 92.48, which is beyond the overbought threshold of 70, however, does not look to be losing any momentum.
However, the age-old adage 'what goes up must come down' rings true, despite current bulls likely to continue riding the wave.
AAVE rose to a multi-month high during Friday's session, as prices rebounded from a disappointing day of trading yesterday.
Following a low of around $205.16 to begin the day, AAVE/USD surged to a high of $246.52 during Friday's session.
This is the highest point AAVE has hit since January 4, and comes as the 14-day RSI bounded from recent support of 69.05.

|AAVE Price Surges by 30% as Whales and Sharks Accumulate
The price of AAVE – the token behind the popular DeFi lending protocol – has seen a major price pump in the past few days after the launch of Aave V3. Whales have contributed to these gains, accumulating over 70,000 AAVE in the last 2 months.
The upgrade – reported by CryptoPotato on Wednesday – introduced cross-chain portals, allowing users to take their assets to versions of the protocol on alternative networks. It also reduced gas costs for all Aave functions by an average of 20-25%.
AAVE’s price has risen sharply since. Starting at $124 at 10:00 am EST on March 16th, it has now risen to $158 at the time of writing.
That’s a 32.9% gain in the past week, since AAVE was at just $116 last Friday.
Similar to BNB token, AAVE offers its holders discounted trading fees when using the Aave protocol. It also operates as a governance token, giving its holders a say in Aave’s future development.
AAVE saw its all-time high back in May of last year, reaching up to $661. It’s still down 76% from then.
However, trading volume is currently around $475 million – highs not seen since early this year.
Whale accumulation has been slowly on the rise since about the same time. According to on-chain metrics, users holding between $152,000 and $1.52m in AAVE have accumulated over $10.5m in the token since January.
