At launch, Aave Pro will only support four assets — Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Aave and USD Coin (USDC), with its pools segregated from Aave’s other deployments.

The platform will add a whitelisting layer onto its v2 smart contracts to ensure that only “institutions, corporates, and fintechs” that have passed Fireblocks’ Know Your Customer verification can access Aave Pro. Fireblocks will also be tasked with implementing Anti-Money Laundering and anti-fraud controls for Aave Pro.

The email also notes plans to decentralize governance for Aave Pro in the future.”

“One of the most widely used charts for predicting massive future bitcoin (BTC, -3.8%) price gains is showing the largest divergence since January 2019. The bitcoin stock-to-flow model currently suggests that the price of bitcoin should be around $77,900.
