Since it launched on the chain, the V3 deployment has attracted $2.24 billion in deposits and $756.93 million in loans, per data from the lending protocol.

As a result of Aave’s expanded usage post the V3 launch, the value of assets locked (TVL) within the decentralized finance (DeFi) platform has grown by 60%. As of 1 January, Aave’s TVL was $3.82 billion, and sat at $6.12 billion at press time.

When Aave V3 launched in March 2022, it was deployed on a number of blockchain networks — including Polygon [MATIC], Arbitrum [ARB], Avalanche [AVAX], Fantom [FTM], Harmony, and Optimism [OP] — with the Ethereum deployment being left to be decided by a future vote.

Following unanimous support from its community members, V3 was launched on the leading altchain 11 months later. Since V3 went live on Ethereum, its TVL has climbed by over 300%. At press time, this stood at $2.1 billion.

As of 1 January, the TVL was under $1 billion, at $440 million.

The growth in Aave’s TVL in the past six months led it to replace MakerDAO [MKR] as the DeFi protocol with the second largest TVL after Lido Finance [LDO], which remains the top DeFi protocol with a TVL of $14.90 billion.

MakerDAO comes behind Aave with an asset-locked value of $5.31 billion, having dropped by 15% since 10 March when SVB collapsed, and the USDC and DAI stablecoins lost their parity with the U.S. dollar.
