Market Risk Review:
Details can be found in this forum post
Gauntlet has published a Market Downturn Risk Review to provide the community with an update given the notable market downturn from January 21-24th. We have been analyzing the markets closely and have observed that there were no insolvencies that occurred on Aave V2 during the market crash. The protocol was able to healthily liquidate $110M in collateral across 1,846 positions and 913 users. There were no outsized liquidations on Aave; the single largest liquidation was $7.6M. One user faced $14M in liquidation (>13% of all liquidations). For more detail and visuals, see here.
