Positions Analysis

There is currently one major user utilizing GNO as collateral on V3 Ethereum, borrowing ~$845 in USDC and WXDAI against his 18K GNO collateral, accounting for over 84% of the debt ceiling. The user’s current health score is 2.86.


GNO liquidity has remained stable since March 1, with more liquidity when paired with WETH than USDC.

GNO is currently listed with relatively conservative parameters: 36% LT and 31% LTV. We recommend an increase to 50% and 45%, respectively. Following observations at these levels and utilizing our simulation platform, these parameters may be further optimized.

Given current market conditions and utilizing our Isolation Mode Methodology we recommend doubling the debt ceiling to $2M.


Asset Parameter Current Recommended
GNO LT 36.00% 50.00%
GNO LTV 31.00% 45.00%
GNO Debt Ceiling $1,000,000 $2,000,000
