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's set of parameter updates included adjusting nine (9) total risk parameters across seven (7) Aave V2 assets including LTV, Liquidation Threshold, and Liquidation Bonus, but did not reach quorum on the AIP vote. Gauntlet will return to the governance forums this week with another set of parameter recommendations to optimize capital efficiency and manage risk.
