Spotlight: Reputation DAO 🔦

  • Reputation DAO is building a transparent, open and privacy focused reputation system. The DAO will provide reputation scores, models and visualizations as a neutral service for application users and builders. The aim is to democratize reputation and credit systems through a DAO-based voting structure.
  • The first application for Reputation DAO is Oracle Reputation which is what Aave awarded the DAO a grant for. Oracle Reputation ranks and visualizes the Chainlink Oracle Network, allowing users to understand how reliable data feeds are and how this affects smart contracts. Check out the integration here.
  • Reputation DAO was awarded an Aave grant in late 2021 to integrate their Protocol Visualization Environment (PVE) feature. The PVE is a widget that will sit on the Aave front-end. Clicking the widget will allow users to visit their site and inspect the security of the Chainlink Oracle Networks that Aave uses.
  • “There is no better first integration than Aave”. The team was attracted to Aave because of its status as a blue-chip protocol, the strong DAO, and high DeFi safety score.
  • A new reputation DAO website will be launching shortly along with a full roadmap which will detail their expansion beyond Oracles into credit scoring, DAO reputation, NFT Reputation and a host of other exciting applications. In the meantime, check out this article for the rationale behind why Reputation is becoming a DAO.
  • Keep up to date by following the Reputation DAO on Twitter and joining their Discord.

Risk 🔎

In case you haven’t seen it, check out the Aave Risk Dashboard by Gauntlet at gov.gauntlet.network/aave. The Gauntlet team is particularly keen on iterating on this dashboard for the community and would love feedback via this Google Form.

Risk Parameter Updates:

Details can be found in this AIP

This week, AIP 55 was passed and executed to enable FEI as a collateral asset on Aave V2. The initial parameters for FEI are an LTV of 50%, a Liquidation Threshold of 60%, and a Liquidation Bonus of 6.5%. The Gauntlet platform analyzed the financial risks of FEI in order to arrive at its parameterization recommendations, while the FEI team provided analysis on the technical risks.

Enabling assets as collateral on Aave is a growth driver for the protocol, but must be done so safely. The passing of AIP 55 marks an opportunity to strengthen the ecosystems of both Aave and FEI.


State of the protocol 📰
