Aave Grants DAO Update 🏗

This Thursday. The next AGD Community Call will be hosted on Twitter Spaces at 4pm UTC, July 29th. Hopefully you can drop in! We have an awesome agenda lined up including updates on high priority unanswered RFPs from @AaveGrants, the liquidity mining program from @ParaFiCapital, $AMPL being added to Aave v2 from @AmpleforthOrg, and four AGD recipients - @DeFiAlliance, @SymphonyFinance, @FlipsideCrypto, and @Boardroom_info.

State of the protocol 📰

New standard. At EthCC, @lemiscate unveiled the Aave cross-chain governance bridge. This will enable Aave governance on Ethereum to control the markets on Polygon and other networks as they launch. The code could become the standard for cross-chain governance that other protocols fork and adopt.

Ecosystem 🧉

DeFi Alliance heating up. The @DeFiAlliance officially welcomed @0xPolygon and AGD to their Ecosystem Partnership Program. Startups focused on building in the Aave ecosystem will receive support including at least two projects that are AGD recipients. Any interested teams can apply for the next cohort before August 11th.
