#### Features expected
Challenger applicants are free to provide their vision and ideas to fulfill this challenge. Aave is happy to provide an idea to guide them :
**Gitcoin Grants support**
Aave protocol introduced the concept of native interest redirection without the need to lock tokens or wrapping them into another layer of ERC20, with this feature, any Aave user can decide the beneficiary recipient or his interest earned with the protocol and remains in full control of his funds at any time.
We believe this feature will be key in the emerging "no-loss no lock" ecosystem, enabling seamless donations and contributions to projects.
Using this feature at the service of the Gitcoin Grants system, Hackers can get inspired by projects such as [GiveTogether](https://givetogether.app) to create a no-loss curated donation network for The ecosystem projects of the Gitcoin fam.
You can communicate with the Aave team in the official [Gitcoin Discord](https://discord.gg/MFXD7D2)
