[ARC] Gauntlet <> Aave Renewal

Hello @inkyamze and thanks for this post.

Firstly, I want to thank Gauntlet for their work on the Aave protocol and their dedication to help mitigate risks for the protocol.

While this snapshot failed, I still believe Gauntlet has been, is, and will be a clear net positive for our community, and with the ACI, I’m supportive of a re-run vote with an updated proposal.

I already raised in the past that any proposal asking for funding should base cost calculations on protocol revenue and not on % of borrowed funds, as only the former is long-term sustainable for the protocol, and my opinion on this hasn’t changed.

Outside of that, I still believe that the protocol would be less resilient and users more at risk without an active risk team and regular risk parameters AIPs updates, and Gauntlet has a track record that speaks for itself.

I encourage Gauntlet to work on a re-run and will be supportive of an updated proposal.
