In case you haven’t seen it, check out the AAVE V2 Risk Dashboard and Analytics Dashboard developed by Gauntlet. Gauntlet has also launched the AAVE Arc Risk Dashboard. The Gauntlet team is particularly keen on iterating on this dashboard for the community and would love feedback via this Google Form.

For more details on how Gauntlet manages market risk for AAVE, please see Gauntlet’s Parameter Recommendation Methodology and Gauntlet’s Model Methodology.

Risk Parameter Proposals:

Details can be found here

Gauntlet has put forward 6 more proposals to de-risk assets across V2 and V3 markets. These are a continuation of Gauntlet’s proposals over the last several weeks, including de-risking V2 ETH, de-risking Aave Polygon markets, freezing REN, freezing CVX, and freezing BAL.

Gauntlet’s current proposals recommend freezing assets on V2 markets and inserting borrow caps on V3 AVAX. Details of the proposal rationale can be found here. The proposals currently live for voting are AIP 120, 121, 122, 123, 124, and Snapshot vote
