[ARFC] Chaos Labs Risk Stewards - Increase Supply and Borrow Cap for USDT on V3 Ethereum and Polygon- 03.15.2024


A proposal to increase the supply and borrow cap for USDT on Aave Ethereum and Polygon V3.


The recommendations below were made utilizing Chaos’ supply and borrow cap methodologies and after analyzing user positions for each asset.

The supply cap for USDT on Polygon and Ethereum has reached 80% utilization, with borrow caps reaching 77% and 74%, respectively.

Given the current market conditions and absolute sizes of the markets on each deployment, we recommend increasing the caps on Ethereum by 1.5X and on Polygon by 2X.


Chain Asset Current Supply Cap Recommended Supply Cap Current Borrow Cap Recommended Borrow Cap
Ethereum USDT 1,000,000,000 1,500,000,000 930,000,000 1,400,000,000
Polygon USDT 45,000,000 90,000,000 45,000,000 85,000,000

Next Steps

We will move forward and implement these updates via the Risk Steward process.
