[ARFC] - Chaos Labs Risk Stewards - Increase Supply and Borrow Caps on V3 Scroll - 02.19.2024


A proposal to increase the following caps on V3 Scroll:

  • WETH - Supply and Borrow cap
  • wstETH - Supply Cap


The supply cap for wstETH on V3 Scroll is currently at 100% utilization, and the supply and borrow caps of WETH are at ~97% and ~86%, respectively.

As the Scroll deployment only recently launched and has limited historical data and usage, we do not utilize our stress testing methodology for this set of recommendations. Instead, we utilized our previous interim supply cap methodology, which can be found here.

Given the current usage across the deployment and liquidity on Scroll, we support doubling the wstETH supply cap and the WETH Borrow cap. For WETH, we recommend setting the supply cap at 750, following our approach of setting the supply cap of assets at no more than 50% of their onchain circulating supply and considering the current total circulating supply of WETH on Scroll is 1,500.

User Analysis


Two users are currently supplying nearly 100% of the total supply. Both are not borrowing against their collateral.

  1. 0x1e4c8489F9d876293C36b730107E89e0F2a0CB04 - supplying 500K USDC, with no borrows against it.
  2. 0x65a9d341bdf21d5af7f91d8b2c710ed5aedf4ca6 - supplying 456K USDC, with no borrows against it.


Two users are currently supplying over 88% of the total wstETH.

  1. 0xecc0e46f64458ae70dca30e298d20e3c993d9541 - supplying ~130 wstETH to borrow ~140 WETH.
  2. 0x4ef83c71eeb0db578bc74b30aa570873bfcfeae1 - supplying 100 wstETH, with no borrows against it.


A single user is currently borrowing over 78% of the total borrowed WETH.

  1. 0xecc0e46f64458ae70dca30e298d20e3c993d9541 - borrowing ~140 WETH against his ~130 wstETH collateral
