Abstract：Decentralized lending platform Aave launched its long-awaited permissioned liquidity pool named Aave Arc with Fireblocks the first of 30 institutional users to join.
Fireblocks also serves as a whitelisting agent for Aave Arc, ensuring other institutions that wish to join the permission pool perform KYC/AML requirements. Aave cannot perform this task itself because it is not a regulated entity such as a bank or other traditional finance institution.
As the whitelisting agent, Fireblocks has already approved “30 licensed financial institutions to participate on Aave Arc as suppliers, borrowers, and liquidators.”
Among some of the whitelisted entities are Anubi Capital, Canvas Digital, CoinShares, GSR, and crypto yield aggregator Celsius.

Aaves new permissioned liquidity pool aims to onboard more institutions to the burgeoning DeFi space that has $133 billion in total value locked (TVL) as of time of writing. That TVL has grown 4.5 times since Jan. 10 of 2021 according to DappRadar.
While institutions began purchasing cryptocurrency in increasingly sizable portions in 2021, most remained skittish about dabbling in DeFi due to compliance hurdles and regulatory uncertainty.
