Some of the utility bills being tested by the company include paying salaries, income taxes and other organizational expenses.
The application is available to Android and iOS users and a web version is also available for the users wanting to access from their desktops. The platform currently allows the exchange of fiat to crypto pairs on the exchange including six fiat currencies i.e. US Dollar (USD), Euro (EUR), Swiss Franc (CHF), British Pound (GBP), Indian Rupee (INR) and the Australian Dollars (AUD).
The CEO and founder of AAVE, Stani Kulechov, praised the AAVE Pay app as it allows the daily spending of cryptocurrencies boosting adoption of digital assets. Speaking on the latest development by the AAVE platform, Stani said,
