[ARFC] Chaos Labs Risk Parameter Updates - Increase Debt Ceiling for SNX and MKR on V3 Ethereum - 01.31.2024

Simple Summary

A proposal to increase the debt ceiling of SNX and MKR on V3 Ethereum

Motivation

SNX

The current debt ceiling for SNX on V3 Ethereum set at $2.5M, has reached 94% utilization.

Given current market conditions our Isolation Mode Methodology supports increasing the debt ceiling to $4M.

It is important to note that the majority of SNX debt positions are concentrated within two accounts, accounting for over 90% of the total debt, as outlined below. While this concentration does not affect the current recommendation, it is something to continue monitoring and will be considered in future recommendations and cases of significant market changes.

Positions Analysis

There are currently two major users utilizing SNX as collateral on V3 Ethereum:

  1. 0x09d86d566092bec46d449e72087ee788937599d2 - borrowing $1.81M in stables (USDC and USDT) against his 1.4M SNX collateral, accounting for nearly 73% of the debt ceiling. The user’s current health score is 1.59.
  2. 0x97cfb214adcd7243efd6b491a6c719c493d04122 - borrowing ~$448K USDT against his ~595K SNX collateral, accounting for nearly 18% of the debt ceiling. The user’s current health score is 2.73.

MKR

The current debt ceiling for MKR on V3 Ethereum set at $8.5M, has reached 99% utilization.

Given current market conditions our Isolation Mode Methodology supports increasing the debt ceiling to $12M.

There are currently four major users using MKR as collateral on V3 Ethereum, utilizing 87.5% of the debt ceiling. While this concentration does not affect the current recommendation, it is something to continue monitoring and will be considered in future recommendations and cases of significant market changes

I see that the proposal has been executed for 24 hours now – but it does not appear that the debt ceiling has been raised for MKR? Is there an additional step between execution and the new limit being reflected here?

Hey Leritu, please see here. The voting closed, but the payload hasn’t been executed yet.
