Aug 03, 2021
What’s Aave? Why is it so successful? How will DeFi impact the future?
On The Ledger explores DeFi and the crypto economy through the prism of Aave, 2021’s DeFi success. DeFi pioneer and Founder and CEO of Aave, Stani Kulechov & Fabrice Dautriat, Head of Coin Integration at Ledger, explain how Aave became the largest lending protocol in no time, while exploring the remaining challenges towards DeFi mass adoption.
Where crypto is changing money, Decentralized Finance is disrupting traditional finance as we know it. DeFi’s potential is enormous. This emerging ecosystem caught the attention of entrepreneurs, policy makers and of course investors. While we’re still in its early days, DeFi has wonderful promises set to change the future of finance.
In 2020, DeFi growth took the world by storm, growing by triple digits and It has already more than doubled in 2021. In this vibrant context, Aave stood out and became the largest lending protocol with more than 11 billion with a B dollars in total value locked. So, let’s face it: DeFi is too big to ignore, and this is just the beginning.
And we are very pleased, because #9 is a special episode.
We have Stani Kulechov, Founder & CEO of Aave. Stani is an impressive entrepreneur and DeFi pioneer. He blended his law background with his interest in finance to experiment with DeFi, first by founding Ethlend, a decentralized lending platform, which then became Aave, the leading DeFi protocol.
We’ll be joined by our one and only Fabrice Dautriat, Head of Coin Integration at Ledger. Fabrice is the man responsible for integrating a variety of projects within the Ledger ecosystem, coins, app, dApps, you name it.
