Proposal #182 description


mrc: 90 title: USDC, stATOM Cap Increases - Osmosis Outpost authors: Mars Foundation forum-url: https://forum.marsprotocol.io/t/1261

Summary

The objective of this proposal is to increase the cap of the following assets on the Osmosis outpost as follows:

  • stATOM from 350,000 to 500,000 stATOM.
  • USDC (Noble) from 6,000,000 to 12,000,000 USDC.

Motivation

The caps for these assets are currently filled. This suggests there’s potentially additional (currently unmet) demand to use these assets within the Mars Osmosis Outpost. This proposal aims to allow Mars to meet that additional demand.

Risks

The deposit caps serve two main purposes:

  1. They limit the exposure to any single token. This is important to mitigate idiosyncratic risks specific to any particular token and to mitigate liquidity risk, which may impede proper functioning of the liquidations system and could ultimately lead to bad debt.
  2. They mitigate looping attacks in which attackers are able to generate artificially large positions of certain tokens with the purpose of subsequently manipulating their price and effectively stealing assets from the protocol.

As the caps increase, so do the risks explored above. At the end of the day, a right level of the caps should strike the right balance between risk aversion and protocol usefulness. In this sense, we believe that while the proposed caps do increase risk for the protocol, it is still conservative given the liquidity levels of the assets.

Implementation

This is a signaling proposal, not an executable proposal.

The Mars smart contracts on the Osmosis chain are currently controlled by the Builder Multisig address. If this proposal passes, the builders will utilize their multisig to make the necessary parameter changes.
