Aave V3 Ethereum Deployment:
Details can be found here
Following the community’s decision to deploy a new Aave V3 Ethereum, it is now time for the community to make important choices about how to design V3 ETH’s initial market structure.
Gauntlet provides recommendations in the forum post, and discussions are ongoing.
Risk Parameter Updates:
Details can be found in this AIP
Gauntlet proposed adjusting five (5) total risk parameters, including Liquidation Threshold, Loan To Value, and Liquidation Bonus, across two (2) Aave V2 ETH assets.
This batch update of risk parameters aligned with the Moderate risk level chosen by the Aave community. These parameter updates were 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.
