In a decisive response to a reported feature issue on November 4, Aave, a leading decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol, has temporarily halted activities across several markets. This precautionary measure affects Aave’s v2 Ethereum Market and specific assets within Aave v2 on the Avalanche network. It also extends to particular markets on Polygon, Arbitrum, and Optimism.
Aave’s swift action came after community developers confirmed the problem. They clarified that users’ funds were not endangered by this issue. Despite the lack of details on the nature of the glitch or the assets involved, the protocol reassured users that most of its services, including Aave v3 markets on Ethereum, Base, and Metis, as well as Aave v2 markets on Polygon and Avalanche, remained unaffected.
During this suspension, users interacting with the frozen assets are allowed to withdraw and repay but are restricted from initiating new supply or borrowing transactions. Aave is preparing a governance proposal to restore normalcy, promising a detailed analysis upon full resolution of the issue.
As of the last report, Aave’s native token, AAVE, showed resilience in market value, with a minimal decrease in trading price, underscoring market confidence amid the protocol’s transparent handling of the incident.
