AAVE: The Money Market Protocol on Abitrum

For the trading business to better scale, Deri Protocol adopts AAVE as the external custodian on Abitrum. AAVE does not just hold capital but also calculates its dynamic effective value.

The support of multiple base tokens is more systematical, as users can choose to deposit any token supported by AAVE, e.g. USDC, DAI, WBTC, ETH, LINK.

When users deposit several kinds of tokens, the real-time total dynamic effective value of the tokens is calculated by AAVE with some built-in functions.
