Risk Parameter Updates:

Details can be found in this ARC

This week's set of parameter updates includes adjusting nine (9) total risk parameters across seven (7) Aave V2 assets including LTV, Liquidation Threshold, and Liquidation Bonus. This past week saw slight volatility drops and increases in trading volume and liquidity for most assets. Gauntlet’s platform recommends the following set of parameter changes that will decrease liquidation bonuses on several less-utilized assets.
