trading, Ethereum, Erc20, DEX, exchange, aave, swap
### Challenge Description
Aave protocol introduced the concept of uncollateralized loans in a context of a single transaction, with this feature, any interaction with the Ethereum blockchain that will result in a financial gain can be performed even without providing liquidity.
From breeding cryptokitties to liquidating CDPs positions Flashloans will be the base layer of more efficient and optimized financial dapps ecosystems.
#### Features expected
Challenger applicants are free to provide their vision and ideas to fulfill this challenge. Aave is happy to provide a few ideas to guide them :
**Liquidation "keeper" bot**
Flashloan() is a powerful method to liquidate loans with a low Health factor, optimizing liquidation is a way to strengthen DeFI platforms to market events, Aave-oriented bot monitoring the Ethereum blockchain and scouting for liquidation opportunities is a great fit for this challenge.
Keepers bots, oriented to other DeFI platforms are also valid submissions, a platform-agnostic bot would be ideal.
**loan-saver insurance bot**
Insurance service for Aave loans, borrowers can subscribe to a contract that would _save_ for a fee a low Health factor loan. The cost of the service will be lower than the cost of a liquidation.
**Decentralized exchange arbitrage**
Leveraging on the undercollateralized feature of Flashloan(), a bot can without requiring the high amounts of locked capital usually needed in market arbitrage, generate financial gains by banking on prices discrepancy between different Decentralized Exchanges. Reducing spread across exchanges and to the benefits of all.
