ChaosLabs proposes adjusting seven risk parameters across four Aave V3 Ethereum assets (DAI, wstETH, rETH, cbETH) to optimize protocol borrow usage and minimize losses. The changes, based on extensive simulations, could improve capital efficiency with negligible effect on VaR and EVaR, and community voting on these changes and AIP-320 will commence in 24 hours.

The discussion revolves around a proposal by ChaosLabs to adjust seven risk parameters across four Aave V3 Ethereum assets, namely DAI, wstETH, rETH, and cbETH. This proposal is the result of extensive simulations conducted by Chaos Labs' Parameter Recommendation Platform, which is designed to optimize protocol borrow usage while minimizing losses from liquidations and bad debt1.

The proposed changes are capped at ±3% for all parameters to ensure controlled changes and allow for analysis of their effect on user behavior1. The simulations suggest that these changes could result in improved capital efficiency of the system, with a negligible effect on the projected VaR and EVaR1. Specific recommendations include increasing the Liquidation Penalty for DAI by 1%, the Liquidation Threshold for WSTETH by 1%, and the Loan-to-Value for WSTETH, cbETH, and rETH by 9.5%, 7.5%, and 7.5% respectively1.

ChaosLabs has also confirmed that there is adequate on-chain liquidity to support any significant liquidations with the updated parameters and that no outsized positions are actively affecting their recommendations1. A Snapshot for community voting on these changes will be starting in 24 hours2. In addition, AIP-320 has been published for this proposal, with voting also starting in less than 24 hours3. This discussion is crucial for the community as it could lead to significant changes in the risk parameters of the Aave V3 Ethereum assets.
