This proposal was drafted as a result of a previous discussion and made with help of @ov3rkoalafied , @vasilysumanov, @mikael, and others.

Proposal for parameters of initial deployed Allowed Contracts policy

NOTE : if working with the raw numbers, LT for stables would work as follows - a swap from a stablecoin to a stablecoin would cause your Health Factor to majorly decrease, that is because stables are not always stable. As such, minor semi-manual assumptions could be made in order to improve user experience, whereas certain select asset types would be granted higher LT.

This is a multiple choice vote

You can either vote for a safer package with WETH, WBTC, USDC, DAI, LINK and/or also for the main DeFi tokens 1INCH, AAVE, COMP, SNX, YFI, UNI, FEI, DPI. If both reach quorum of >2%, then all tokens in the list will be added. If only one reaches quorum, then that one will be added. If none reach quorum, a re-vote will take place.

SAFE 5-asset packet: WETH, WBTC, USDC, DAI, LINK

$comp? safu? all patched up now? given recent vulnerabilities, this one spooks me a bit.

All we need to know for defining Liquidation Thresholds (and this is only important thing for listing token) is
a) liquidity amount for token
b) historical volatility - the lower it is, the higher leverage gearbox can give on it.

If you look at the historical volatility of COMP (link is here) you can see that volatility of COMP is pretty low. Why is this despite the vulnerability - I don’t know.

k well if we all get rekt and it’s cos of comp, I want a poap

Seems that this vote led to a lot of interesting chatter inside and outside gearbox community - great participation so far! I would like to note that the initial list appeared as a result of Pre GIP 2/3 discussion, taking into account different opinions presented by community members. The starting batch as to say, was chosen just as a working tool to launch with. It doesn’t have to be scrutinized or made perfect in terms of the asset composition, as long as it includes the most safe (based on DAO risk tolerance) assets. It will be possible to add new tokens at any time with new GIPs. Hence the 2 choice vote instead of doing each asset separately.

Now it seems to me the main task from the point of view of risk is to:

  • check how well the liquidations work (this information is extremely important for the correct calculation of LT and this can be done only after launch on mainnet)
  • create together with a community transparent and clear criteria for adding new tokens (including various risk metrics), to serve as a guideline.

re CRV/CVX - I did some research on their volatility:

Largest price drop for tokens from 12-Pack in voting is 15% for YFI (Pre GIP 2/3 discussion), while for CRV it is 20.96%.

Largest price drop of CRV happens on 15 Feb 21, after that price became less volatile… I think we need to understand is it possible again or token now more mature and it’s impossible… As confirmation of 2nd opinion is that for last 270 days max 5-min price drop for CRV is 12.9%. As such, it seemed best to not try to fit into the first batch [GIP2] all the assets possible, but just put the most reliable ones as a way to launch with. Again, new tokens at any time with new GIP. Curve and Convex are both cool!

For CVX: I can’t find a Chainlink oracle here, seems it hasn’t any. @michwill noticed, that Curve’s cvxeth price oracle can be used - need more research on that.


Great job, @ilgiz ! I believe that community will make research needed and it’ll be possible to make a proposal to add CRV token soon. Totally agree about CVX, without Chainlink pricefeed, this task is impossible from engineering side. Hope, this pricefeed will be added by Chainlink soon.

Definitely agree that in 15 Feb CRV was a little bit too volatile. But supply and liquidity grows proportionally to time passed since Aug 14 2020…

And also this process is fairly probabilistic (so if there was only one drop it doesn’t mean it will happen again, or if there was no such drop - it doesn’t mean it’s totally excluded…).
