What is Aave (AAVE) and how to get an instant AAVE loan

Aave (AAVE) is a decentralized finance (DeFi) money market that runs on the Ethereum blockchain. Aave lets users lend and borrow a wide range of crypto assets. Originally known as ETHLend, the company changed to Aave in 2020. As a peer-to-peer lending protocol, users lend out their crypto to other users and as a reward, earn passive income on the funds they lend out. To qualify, a borrower must deposit collateral greater than the amount they want to borrow. The AAVE token is the native token that users can use as collateral to get a discount on transaction fees. AAVE also allows governance rights to token holders.
