Freeze BUSD on aave

Edition #52 - 17 FEB 2023

This proposal suggests freezing the BUSD reserve on the Aave V2 Ethereum market following the announcement by Paxos, the minter of BUSD, to stop minting BUSD from April 2023 and only allow redemption for their underlying value by burning BUSD, leading to a trend towards zero circulating supply over time.
