Risk Parameter Updates:
Details can be found in this ARC
This week's set of parameter updates includes adjusting twelve (12) total risk parameters across eight (8) Aave V2 assets including LTV, Liquidation Threshold, and Liquidation Bonus. Gauntlet’s platform recommends enabling FEI as a collateral asset on Aave V2, as well as the following set of parameter changes that will decrease liquidation bonuses on several less-utilized assets. Gauntlet will initiate an on-chain governance proposal on Tuesday, January 18th to enable FEI as a collateral asset. Following this proposal, we will make a separate proposal for our regular set of parameter recommendations.

Grantee Spotlight: Stakeall Finance 🔦
Stakeall Finance is a fully decentralised non custodial DeFi platform focused on building DeFi strategies. Think of DeFi strategies as a series of DeFi actions wrapped in a single transaction. These innovative DeFi strategies open a new gateway for users to participate in DeFi with better returns and minimal opportunity cost.
Stakeall first built out a Leverage Staking Strategy on top of Aave at HackMoney 2021 where they secured a finalist position🏆 The strategy allows users to borrow from Aave for staking in protocols like the Graph and Matic.
The team was attracted to build on Aave because it is the leading protocol for lending and borrowing crypto assets. Stakeall was highly impressed with the community’s focus on building and constantly innovating the protocol.
Check out the staking strategies live on mainnet at app.stakeall.finance
Readers can follow them on Twitter and join their Discord to get more involved and even participate in building innovative DeFi strategies. Stakeall is working on integrating more DeFi and staking protocols, and is actively researching on building cross chain DeFi strategies.
