BlockchainAtColumbia, a non-profit organization at Columbia University, has been actively involved in the blockchain community, with a focus on DeFi Governance. They have launched the first student group DAO, Lion DAO, and have been engaged in various activities such as a grants program, an annual conference, weekly speaker sessions, and technical blockchain workshops. They have also organized a hackathon, Lionhack, to attract more people to the crypto world and foster new projects. With their experience in DAO’s governance and in Uniswap, Compound, and dYdX, they believe they are well-positioned to serve as a neutral and effective governance delegate for the Aave community1.

The organization introduced two delegates, Ryusik, a Computer Science student with trading experience and a background in working with CEX in Korea, and Batman, a data science graduate student with previous experience at Google and familiarity with several protocols including Aave, Compound, Uniswap, and Chainlink1.

In addition, BlockchainAtColumbia has shown support for the proposed parameter changes for Aave V3 Avalanche, as suggested by Gauntlet and Chaos Labs. They particularly favor the aggressive recommendations for the proposed changes in BTC.b and wBTC.e borrow caps2. This active participation and support for changes in the Aave community demonstrate their commitment to the growth and development of the blockchain ecosystem.
