ARC: Risk Parameter Updates 2021-12-29

Simple Summary

A proposal to adjust nine (9) total risk parameters across seven (7) Aave V2 assets including LTV, Liquidation Threshold, and Liquidation Bonus.


This proposal is a batch update of risk parameters to align with the the Moderate risk level chosen by the Aave community. These parameter updates are a continuation of Gauntlet’s regular parameter recommendations.


This set of parameter updates seeks to maintain the overall risk tolerance of the protocol while making risk trade-offs between specific assets.


This past week did not see outsized changes in market conditions nor within the Aave protocol. There were slight volatility drops and increases in trading volume and liquidity for most assets. Our platform recommends the following set of parameter changes that will decrease liquidation bonuses on several less-utilized assets.

Parameter Current Value Recommended Value
BAL Liquidation Bonus 8.0% 7.5%
CRV Loan To Value 45% 55%
DPI Loan To Value 65% 70%
DPI Liquidation Bonus 8.5% 7.5%
DPI Liquidation Threshold 70% 75%
ENJ Loan To Value 60% 70%
MANA Loan To Value 65% 70%
MKR Liquidation Bonus 8.0% 7.5%
UNI Liquidation Bonus 8.0% 7.5%
