The Aave Companies are a group of software development companies that build open-source blockchain-based software. To date, they are best known for having built the Aave Protocol, a decentralized, non-custodial liquidity protocol. At its peak, the Aave Protocol has reached over $30B TVL (total value locked). Aave V3 launched in March 2022.
Continuing to build on their vision of creating paradigm-shifting web3 software, the Aave Companies recently launched the Lens Protocol, a composable and decentralized social graph, in May 2022. Lens Protocol is designed to empower creators to own the links between themselves and their community, forming a fully composable, user-owned social graph.
