Aave (AAVE):
Aave (AAVE) is a decentralized, open-source platform for lending and borrowing cryptocurrencies and other digital assets. On this platform, investors can obtain digital asset loans with variable interest rates. They can also deposit their digital assets to earn interest. The Aave platform has various mouthwatering offers such as flash loans that must be repaid in one Ethereum block’s time which is around 13 to 15 seconds
Aave Arc is a liquidity pool program specially designed for institutions. Unlike a decentralized platform, this program has a Know Your Customers (KYC) requirement, and this is just for the purpose of maintaining compliance with regulations. But the Aave platform itself does not need the KYC requirement, being a decentralized platform.
Several institutions have benefited from the Aave platform. Some of these institutions include Greyscale’s DeFi funds, which have more than 12 percent of their investments on the platform; another one is Bitwise, which has more than 14 percent of its investments on the platform.

Alchemix (ALCX)
This platform provides loans that automatically offset themselves (self-paying loans) via yield-generating strategies, which is a novel approach in the DeFi lending space. Users can deposit tokens and borrow money against each other at 1:2. Tokens that have been deposited are stored in Yearn vault to generate yield, which is subsequently applied to loan repayment.
In comparison to other DeFi projects, this platform is less active on social media. They just have 72,800 followers on Twitter.
C.R.E.A.M Finance (CREAM)
