Risk Parameter Updates:
Details can be found in AIP 53
This week's set of parameter updates has been executed, including adjusting nine (9) total risk parameters across seven (7) Aave V2 assets including LTV, Liquidation Threshold, and Liquidation Bonus. In addition, Gauntlet froze the KNCL reserve to speed up the KNC migration, as well as eliminate the risk of keeping a less liquid deprecated asset on the platform. The passing of AIP 53 demonstrates strongly to the community that Aave continually manages risk, even during the holiday season.
