Aave is a DeFi protocol that mainly focuses on liquidity, allowing users to become either depositors or borrowers. The former earns income in the form of interest, while the latter borrows assets in order to use them.
The Aave protocol offers various features, one of the most interesting being the flash loan. This allows users to borrow assets without collateral, as long as they return them in one block transaction.
The native token for the platform is AAVE. It is used for voting rights on improvements done on the protocol.
Token 2049, is a global cryptocurrency conference that will be held in London on Oct 7-8. During this conference, Stani Kulechov, the CEO of Aave will be one of the main speakers.
AAVE has been trading inside a descending broadening wedge since Sept 7. This is normally considered a bullish pattern.
Furthermore, there is a bullish divergence in the RSI and the MACD has generated a higher momentum bar.
The closest resistance area is at $375. This is the 0.618 Fib retracement resistance level and the resistance line of the channel.

- Market Cap: $1,095,574 Billion

Synthetix (SNX) is a decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol that allows users to gain on-chain exposure to various assets. It makes use of synthetic assets (synths) in order to solve slippage and liquidity issues that are usually present in decentralized exchanges.
In addition to this, participants are able to earn rewards by supplying collateral to the protocol or by staking SNX, the native token for the platform.
The aim of the platform is to bring in non-blockchain assets in the cryptocurrency space, in order to provide access to a broader financial market.
Kain Warwick, the CEO of Synthetix will also be one of the main speakers at the Token 2049 conference.
SNX has broken down from an ascending support line (dashed) and the breakdown is supported by the decreasing MACD and RSI.
However, it is following a descending support line which coincides with the $9 horizontal support area.

- Increased access
Origin Protocol boasts more than 800 investors, while the native token, OGN is held by more than 37,000 addresses. These holders are periodically rewarded based on the yield of the network. In addition to this, the token is used for voting rights to change to the platform.
On Oct 1, OGN holders will also be rewarded with four non-fungible tokens (NFTs) which will be distributed in partnership with C.R.E.A.M finance.
OGN has been trading in a range between $0.58 and $1.40 since May. It was rejected by the resistance area on Sept 6 and has been moving downwards since.
