About AAVE:
Aave (AAVE), originally known as ETHLend, is a decentralized open-source finance protocol that allows users to lend and borrow cryptocurrency. At its heart is the AAVE token, which gives its holders voting rights and can be staked within the protocol to earn interest. Find out more here.

About BAT:
Basic Attention Token (BAT) is a blockchain system built on top of Ethereum, used for tracking consumers' media attention on websites. It runs primarily on an open-source, privacy focused browser called Brave and utilizes its native BAT tokens as a medium of exchange between publishers, advertisers and users. Find out more here.

About UMA:
Universal Market Access (UMA) is a protocol for creating synthetic assets that allows any two counterparties to design and create their own financial contracts on the blockchain. It can be used to design ERC-20 tokens or write contracts representing anything that can be expressed with decentralized futures. Find out more here.
