This publication proposes periodically increasing the Aave v2 Avalanche Reserve Factor (RF) to encourage users to migrate to Aave v3.


Similar to other Aave v2 deployments, this publication seeks to periodically increase the RF across the last remaining v2 deployment, Avalanche.

In doing so, the first AIP will align the RF values with the Ethereum v2 deployment, and each subsequent AIP publication will increase the RF by a further 5.00% up to a maximum of 99.99%. To minimise governance overhead, the Ethereum v2 and Avalanche v2 updates will be combined, with the later implemented by the Guardian. There remains only one to two Polygon RF updates and these will be submitted separately.

Do note increasing the RF parameter does not directly affect user’s health factor, and this method has already been implemented on Polygon v2 and Ethereum v2.


The below shows the current and proposed RF for each reserve.

Asset Current RF Initial RF Increase Subsequent RF Increase
DAI.e 10.00% 35.00% 40.00%
USDC.e 10.00% 35.00% 40.00%
USDT.e 10.00% 35.00% 40.00%
wAVAX 15.00% 35.00% 40.00%
WBTC.e 10.00% 40.00% 45.00%
WETH.e 10.00% 35.00% 40.00%

Upon implementing this proposal, a subsequent AIP will be submitted every 2 weeks that increases the RF by 5.00% up to a maximum of 99.99%, subject to market conditions.


TokenLogic, karpatkey and Chaos Labs receive no payment for this proposal. TokenLogic and karpatkey are both delegates within the Aave community.

The next periodic RF update will bring the reserve factors to:

Asset Previous Reserve Factor New Reserve Factor
DAIe 35.00% 40.00%
USDCe 35.00% 40.00%
USDTe 35.00% 40.00%
WAVAX 35.00% 40.00%
