After many projects debated the future of Ethereum after The Merge event, recently Aave, the leading lending platform in this ecosystem, has also spoken out about related technical issues in the near future.
Notably, in the article, Aave also has statements that are said to be oriented toward a more Proof-of-Stake (PoS) future.
“From the perspective of an application layer like Aave, The Merge is just another update similar to Gray Glacier, or any other of the previous. It is true that the consensus layer changes, and this is an important paradigm change, but there is not much reason to think that a Proof-of-Work Ethereum fork would get more traction than the Proof-of-Stake, and be considered canonical.”
And it looks like Ether’s PoW chain won’t be picked up.
“As always, Aave will only work properly on the adopted majority chain, in this case, Ethereum PoS (chainId == 1). So any potential forks should be initially ignored.”
Along with this statement, Aave also updated a few details related to the product, including that the contracts related to the liquidity pool will not be affected; the administrative voting process will be limited to a period of less than 1-3 days; technical problems in transferring funds from/to Ethereum will be closely monitored.
Additionally, Maker (the leading stablecoin and lending solution on Ethereum) also has a statement about the risks associated with derivatives arbitrage, stETH volatility, and other versions of assets that may exist after the upgrade takes place.
Founder Vitalik Buterin also gave his statements around the issue of PoW chains.
Up to now, it can be seen that early DeFi applications are gradually prioritizing the future for PoS, while most centralized exchanges are likely to support parallel PoW versions to optimize transaction volume.
