BGD. Aave v3 Ethereum. New deployment vs Aave v2 Upgrade. An on-chain vote that would be the largest quorum Aave governance has ever seen is scheduled to start October 4th. The AIP will change the voting requirements which is why the quorum required is much than usual (900k YES votes over a 10 day vote). Read more about the two votes that are coming and if you have AAVE and want to support, delegate your proposition power.

In line with Gauntlet’s new mantra “If you are wrong, you don’t get paid”, they put up 30% of the AAVE funding they previously received for any insolvencies that arise from their predictions. Read more in their ‘Insolvency Refund from Gauntlet’ forum post and in Risk 🔎.

In case you haven’t seen it, check out the AAVE V2 Risk Dashboard and Analytics Dashboard developed by Gauntlet. Gauntlet has also launched the AAVE Arc Risk Dashboard. The Gauntlet team is particularly keen on iterating on this dashboard for the community and would love feedback via this Google Form.
Risk Parameter Updates:
Details can be found in this ARC
Gauntlet proposes adjusting seven (7) total risk parameters, including Liquidation Threshold and Loan To Value, across four (4) Aave V2 assets.
This batch update of risk parameters aligns with the Moderate risk level chosen by the Aave community. These parameter updates are a continuation of Gauntlet’s regular parameter recommendations. Gauntlet’s simulation engine has ingested the latest market data to recalibrate parameters for the Aave protocol. An AIP will be published on 9/27/2022.
Insolvency Refund from Gauntlet:
Details can be found here
To increase Gauntlet’s alignment with Aave and put “skin in the game,” Gauntlet will refund a portion of its service fee should its risk parameter optimizations incur losses for the DAO during Gauntlet’s partnership. Gauntlet’s ultimate goal is to protect the protocol - Gauntlet stands behind its work and wants to increase accountability.
A portion (30%) of Gauntlet’s service fee already paid from AIP-50 has been transferred in a lump sum to a new multi-sig contract. Should insolvencies occur, Gauntlet will share an update with the community and send funds back to the DAO in a timely manner.
