Aave Weekly ⚡️
The Aave Weekly Newsletter brings readers insights on protocol liquidity, income and other performance metrics.
The Aave Protocol closes week 43 of 2021 with $31 billion of liquidity:
38.6% Utilisation, generating $13.7m of estimated interest for depositors
$65.6m of Flash Loan volume, generating $58k of fees for depositors
$1.9m liquidated, generating $95k of fees to liquidators
$1.6m for the ecosystem collectors now holding $28.2m
$15.4m generated by the protocol this week
With an additional $4.5m $StkAAVE, $2.5m $WMATIC & $6.7m $WAVAX distributed
*at the weekly close price
You can download the Aave Weekly pdf from the governance forum.
In case you haven’t seen it, check out the Aave Risk Dashboard by Gauntlet at gov.gauntlet.network/aave. 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
This week's set of parameter updates seeks to maintain the overall risk tolerance of the protocol while making risk trade-offs between specific assets. For more detail on Gauntlet’s first two months of recommendations and their impact, please see Gauntlet’s Monthly Risk Report.
No significant changes in volatility or liquidity were observed in most assets. However, the collateral usage of ZRX on Aave almost doubled, so that is an asset we will monitor during the upcoming period.
