Yearn.Finance, a lending aggregator scarcer than Bitcoin

DeFi assets are fast becoming the center of attraction in the crypto-verse. Aave’s LEND has gained more than 4000% within a year.

Interestingly, there seems to be room for more price upsurge, as information reaching Nairametrics revealed that the non-custodial lending and borrowing protocol for Aave’s U.K. business entity has been issued an Electronic Money Institution (EMI) license.

Given that Aave’s LEND business entity is based in the U.K, a pilot for its specific services will start in that country. Aave Limited has its own dedicated website and is headquartered in London.

“Aave will pilot in the U.K., before rolling out to cover the whole EEA and expanding globally,” said the founder and CEO, Stani Kulechov. Specifically, the service will allow users “to go from Fiat to stablecoins and other assets natively in the Aave Ecosystem and then use these assets in the Aave Protocol.”

Aave’s History 

Aave began as ETHLend in 2017 after it raised $16.2 million in an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) to create a decentralized lending platform. Later, it announced a parent company, Aave, which would house multiple different products including EthLend, Aave Lending, Aave Pocket, Aave Custody, Aave Clearing, and Aave gaming.

Quick fact: Defi means “decentralized finance.” By definition, it’s a crypto ecosystem made up of financial apps designed on leading blockchain platforms.

These digital assets are designed on Ethereum codes, and usually exhibit characteristics that include having protocols and financial smart contracts.
