[ARFC] Chaos Labs Risk Stewards - Increase Supply and Borrow Cap on V3 Ethereum - 03.14.2024


A proposal to increase the borrow cap for PYUSD and supply cap for LDO on AAVE Ethereum V3.


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


The borrow cap for PYUSD on Ethereum V3 is currently at 91% utilization.

Given its market cap and liquidity conditions we recommend increasing the borrow cap to 30M.


The supply cap for LDO on Ethereum V3 is currently at 87% utilization.

Utilizing our supply cap methodology, we have determined that the current state of the asset on Ethereum allows for an increase in the Supply Cap of LDO to 8M.

Borrow Distribution Analysis

There are currently a total of $3.07M of assets borrowed against $16.5M of LDO on Aave Ethereum V3.

The current percentage of debt against LDO collateral is approximately 18%. Given the on-chain LDO liquidity, the distribution of LDO debt, and overall utilization on Aave, we propose a slight increase in the Supply Cap from 6M to 8M.


Asset Current Supply Cap Recommended Supply Cap Current Borrow Cap Recommended Borrow Cap
PYUSD 40,000,000 no change 18,000,000 30,000,000
LDO 6,000,000 8,000,000 3,000,000 no change

Next Steps

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