February Risk Review:
Details can be found in this ARC
Gauntlet proposes adjusting six (6) total risk parameters including LTV, Liquidation Threshold, and Liquidation Bonus across five (5) Aave V2 assets. An on-chain vote was initiated on Tuesday, 3/22.
This set of parameter updates seeks to maintain the overall risk tolerance of the protocol while making risk trade-offs between specific assets. Gauntlet’s parameter recommendations are driven by an optimization function that balances 3 core metrics: insolvencies, liquidations, and borrow usage. Parameter recommendations seek to optimize for this objective function. Our agent-based simulations use a wide array of varied input data that changes on a daily basis (including but not limited to, asset volatility, asset correlation, asset collateral usage, DEX / CEX liquidity, trading volume, expected market impact of trades, and liquidator behavior). Gauntlet’s simulations tease out complex relationships between these inputs that cannot be simply expressed as heuristics. For more details, please see Gauntlet’s Parameter Recommendation Methodology and Gauntlet’s Model Methodology.
