The treasury swap followed after an on-chain vote from the community based on the proposal initiated by developer Matthew Graham.

As per the details from the on-chain voting page, the vote passed unanimously with 400,000 in favor of the proposal.
With the vote concluded, the swap happed via a smart contract that used a flat rate of 1 AAVE for 11.829 BAL tokens, and using this rate helps the wide difference of $500,000 in the token swap as per the value of each token. Showing the reasons for the treasury swap, the proposal stated that the token exchange will enable Aave to obtain BAL to provide liqudity for 80/20 BAL: ETH pool on Balancer, and Aave will lock the liquidity position and get the vested BAL tokens with the vesting period being for one year.

“The token exchange, plus additional acquisition, is significant enough for Aave to become a Top 30 holder of BAL tokens, based on etherscan BAL holder rankings. Balancer will become a Top 80 AAVE holder.”
