The Aave Decentralized Finance (DeFi) protocol announced the launch of Aave v3, which represents a significant evolution of the existing liquidity pool model, which promises to increase economic efficiency, enhance existing security measures, and promote further decentralization through DAO development and user experience improvement. – Interface design.
Owners of the original token project, AAVE, are eligible to participate in the Aave Improvement Proposals (AIP), a chain voting mechanism that allows token holders the opportunity to propose and vote on network upgrades for implementation under the underlying protocol.

The V3 update brings improvements such as functionality across networks, a community contribution tool, a gas optimization model that is expected to reduce fees by 20-25%, and a high-efficiency mode, among others.
In addition, a number of decentralized wallet applications (DApps) will be integrated into the v3 platform, including Instadapp, Debank, 1Inch, Paraswap, Zapper, DeFisaver, Zerion, and others.
Previous management solutions implemented by Aave have powered version 3 distributions across a number of blockchain networks, including Polygon, Arbitrum, Avalanche, Fantom, Harmony, and Optimism. The team notes that the rollout of the Ethereum network will follow.
Cointelegraph contacted an Aave representative to gain a deeper understanding of their insights into how the Gateway Gateway will impact the Aave ecosystem, as they said:
