Proposal Updated without emode and with lower caps
Author : Marc Zeller @marczeller - Aave Chan Initiative, Chaos Labs
This proposal aims to onboard wGHO, an ERC-20 token wrapper of GHO, as a collateral-only asset in a newly created stablecoin emode within the Aave V3 Ethereum pool. The integration will enable using wGHO as collateral to borrow other stablecoins, facilitating arbitrage and leveraged positions for under-peg GHO situations.
The onboarding of wGHO presents an opportunity to enhance the Aave ecosystem by allowing wGHO to be used as collateral for borrowing stablecoins such as USDC, USDT, DAI, and LUSD.
This integration will enable arbitrage and leveraged positions in cases of under-peg GHO, providing the markets with tools to act on peg-deviation of GHO in both directions.
Alongside the upcoming GHO PSM, this proposal will further strengthen the market’s ability to maintain the GHO peg.
It’s important to note that although wGHO is proposed as collateral in Aave V3, it will not be a collateral of GHO due to its collateral-only, isolation mode, and emode asset status.
wGHO will only be available to borrow DAI, USDC, LUSD & USDT.
The ACI proposes the following parameters for the integration of wGHO into the Aave V3 Ethereum pool:
- Onboard wGHO as a collateral-only asset & isolation mode asset.
- wGHO parameters:
wGHO is a simple ERC-20 wrapper around the GHO contract. A simple smart contract call allows anyone to wrap and unwrap GHO and wGHO making it as liquid and with the same risk profile of GHO.
Onboarding wGHO instead of GHO, is due to technical implementation and risk isolation reasons. From the end-user perspective, wGHO & GHO are functionally equivalent. If this proposal is validated by governance, the UI frontend is invited to abstract this away.
