[ARFC] Optimism Mainnet Upgrade - Risk Considerations

After analyzing the Bedrock update, Gauntlet’s analysis does not predict that anything abnormal will happen to Aave compared to the Optimism L2 as a whole. The chain is expected to be down for 2-4 hours starting June 6 16:00 UTC, so there could be potential price dislocation between Optimism and mainnet once the upgrade finishes, due to natural asset price variance. However, the Price Oracle Sentinel - which will give users a grace period to top up necessary positions following the update - will be implemented by then as well, so any potential price dislocations are not expected to have a significant impact on the risk on Aave.

Hence, we do not have further recommendations with respect to the Bedrock upgrade at this time.
