Aave to Billions | Stani Kulechov

Stani Kulechov is the Founder of the Aave money market, a place for lending and borrowing assets in DeFi.

Aave has marched up the DeFi leaderboard to become one of the top protocols with the most amount of value deposited into its contracts. Aave’s token LEND has increased 3300% since its bear market low.

What contributed to Aave’s success? What did Aave do differently? Why did Aave’s community thrive when others died? What’s next for Aave and Aavenomics?

We ask Stani these questions and many more, in order to get a glimpse of what is successful in this DeFi frontier!
