The Re-Establishment of Aave V3 Markets After Receiving the Green Light from Community Guardian
The Community Guardian has lifted the pause on Aave V3 markets, which suggests that the issues that led to the temporary measures have been resolved. The decision follows a governance proposal that was approved by the community earlier.
Moreover, the approval to unpause Aave V2 Ethereum has been expedited due to block times on voting and operational considerations.
Resumption of Operations by Aave
The decentralizing lending protocol, Aave, has successfully resumed its operations after implementing precautionary measures earlier this month in response to security vulnerabilities. The Aave DAO expressed gratitude for the prompt action taken by the Community Guardian in unpausing the affected Aave V3 markets.
“Affected Aave V3 markets have been unpaused by the Community Guardian following governance proposal execution. Thanks to the Aave DAO for their prompt action.”

On November 4, Aave temporarily paused its V2 Ethereum market and suspended assets on Avalanche, Polygon, Arbitrum, and Optimism due to a reported problem with a specific feature, prompting precautionary measures following the identification of vulnerabilities.
Despite the specific problem or feature causing the issue being unspecified, Aave has reassured users that they can still withdraw and repay positions from the affected assets pool. However, no further supply or borrowing can occur from the frozen assets pool until the problem is resolved.
A governance proposal was submitted by Aave to restore normal protocol operations to address the situation, with the proposal aiming to update stable borrow parameters for tokens with stable debt.
A voting process within the Aave DAO was scheduled between November 7 and November 10 to decide on the proposed measures, with the governance proposal’s code undergoing testing by BGD Labs and being reviewed by Aave Companies and smart contract security firm Certora.
Maintaining Stability of AAVE Token
Aave is a leading decentralized lending platform with over $6 billion in total value locked, according to data from DeFiLlama. In July 2023, the protocol introduced its algorithmic stablecoin, GHO, positioning it as a competitor to Maker’s DAI token.
The Aave DAO has expressed optimistic revenue expectations for the second half of 2023, fueled by a notable increase in the price of AAVE, the native token of the protocol.
Despite the security issues, Aave’s native token, AAVE, has demonstrated stability in its trend. Currently, the token is trading at $97.34, reflecting a 7.84% increase over the past week.
