Aave could arrive on zkSync 2.0 testnet soon
Aave, a leading DeFi protocol that powers lending and borrowing of cryptocurrencies and real-world assets for users could deploy on zkSync 2.0 testnet if a new proposal gets voted in. zkSync 2.0 is a zero-knowledge rollup layer-2 network that bundles up transactions and passes them down to Ethereum so they can be written to its ledger.
The current version of zkSync 2.0 solves the needs of most applications on Ethereum. It is expected to provide developers with a design space to experiment with applications not possible on Ethereum today.
The proposal was put forward by Franklin DAO, previously Penn DAO, an off-campus web3 organization of University of Pennsylvania students. The proposal is presented in partnership with Matter Labs and the objective is to expand the cross-chain experience of Aave V3.
Aave v3 deployment on zkSync 2.0 testnet
Once the decentralized exchange (DEX) liquidity requirements are met, a snapshot will be submitted to zkSync V2 testnet as next steps. In the second week of October, Aave announced its deployment on Polygon’s zkEVM testnet, alongside DeFi protocol Uniswap. Typically, an expansion of Aave’s cross-chain capabilities boosts the sentiment among Aave token holders.
Aave price could continue to decline
Analysts evaluating the Aave price trend, predict a decline in AAVE till November 5. The sentiment among Aave holders is currently bearish, unless there is a shift in sentiment and increase in on-chain activity, analysts believe AAVE could continue its downtrend.

AAVE/USD is correcting after a strong bullish move and the pair is exchanging hands at $86.03 today. Aave yielded 13.4% gains for holders over the past two weeks. Mugoiri argues that the selling pressure has returned and the trend remains bearish as Aave price steadily declines.
