Aave and Maker: DeFi Giants Battle Over $2 Million Agreement

Aave and Maker at Odds Over $2 Million Profit Sharing Arrangement

Aave and Maker: Aave DAO is publicly criticizing MakerDAO for not upholding a $2 million profit-sharing agreement. In February 2023, Phoenix Labs, the team behind MakerDAO’s lending protocol Spark, proposed sharing 10% of Spark’s profits with Aave over two years. The estimated total was $2 million as a token of appreciation for utilizing Aave’s code.

However, Marc Zeller, a delegate from Aave DAO, claims Spark has only delivered a fraction of the promised amount, attributing the shortfall to “creative accounting” by MakerDAO. Zeller urges for a more collaborative relationship between the two DAOs and suggests that the community consider declaring Spark a “non-approved fork” of Aave’s code.

Avi Eisenberg’s Fight for Lost Funds

Avraham Eisenberg, currently in jail for his $115 million exploit of Mango Markets, is also pursuing a legal battle to recover $14 million he alleges was stolen by Waves creator Sasha Ivanov. Eisenberg accuses Ivanov of a “bait-and-switch scam” and running a “global Ponzi scheme.” Despite court filings, Eisenberg has yet to serve Ivanov directly to proceed with his case. A previous investigation linked wallets associated with Ivanov to the siphoning of $530 million from a lending protocol on Waves, which Ivanov denies.

Polkadot’s Controversial Spending

Polkadot is under scrutiny after revealing it spent $37 million on marketing in the first half of the year, including $5 million on influencers and $180,000 to brand private jets. Critics argue these expenditures have not significantly boosted Polkadot’s profile. Despite the backlash, the cooperative’s spending rose 140%, totaling nearly $87 million, up from about $27 million in the latter half of 2023.

Data and Posts of the Week

RootData’s latest rankings highlight Sentient as the most popular crypto project, following an $85 million funding round led by Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund. Sentient aims to create a blockchain protocol for AI developers to monetize their models and data.
