Risk Parameter Updates:
Details can be found in this AIP
A proposal to adjust five (5) total risk parameters across four (4) Aave V2 assets has been passed and executed.
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. Gauntlet’s 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). These simulations tease out complex relationships between these inputs that cannot be simply expressed as heuristics.
This set of parameter recommendations increases the Liquidation Threshold for UNI while also increasing its Liquidation Bonus. This is an example of a risk trade-off that Gauntlet’s simulation engine optimizes for risk and revenue.
