:writing_hand: Forum Highlights

  • Chaos Labs Risk Oracles

    The proposal introduces Chaos Labs Risk Oracles to automate and optimize risk management in Aave’s network. This will allow for scalable, near-real-time adjustments of critical financial parameters such as supply and borrow caps and liquidation thresholds. The implementation involves off-chain analytics and on-chain updates, aiming to streamline operations and reduce manual interventions across Aave’s deployments.

  • “Merit is Forever” Reward System Program Extension

    The proposal seeks to extend the “Merit is Forever” reward system in Aave, allocating $20 million annually for the next 12 months to enhance Ethereum’s market share and support the GHO stablecoin. Building on positive outcomes from initial rounds, the system aims for increased engagement and benefits for participants, without changes to existing boosters or diluters, subject to ongoing DAO review.

  • Chaos Labs Market Alert - High Price Volatility and Liquidations

    The Chaos Labs Market Alert highlights extreme price volatility and high liquidation activity on April 13, 2024, particularly affecting Aave V2 and V3 deployments. Over the past 48 hours, significant price drops in major cryptocurrencies, including ETH and BTC, triggered widespread liquidations exceeding $65 million. The alert emphasizes the need for continued monitoring and potential adjustments to Aave’s risk management strategies in response to these market conditions.
