Aave (AAVE)

AAVE has pumped by around 50% since the start of the year. However, most tokens have seen 50-100% increases in 2023, mainly because of the belief that the bear market bottom is in and the U.S. Federal Reserve will soon cut interest rates.

But AAVE is still trading 87% lower than its all-time high of $661.69.

Aave is the fourth-largest DeFi platform, with $4.54 billion in total value locked (TVL), according to data from DefiLlama.

On the Flipside
