All referenced data can be accessed directly on the Gearbox dashboard by RiskDAO.


BTC is up 2.4% over the last week, with ETH largely flat.

The summer break is over: Protocol developers, crypto teams and investors flocked to conferences like Token2049 in Singapore and DappCon in Berlin.

Binance.US made the headlines as a string of senior executives have left the organisation, including the CEO Brian Shroder.

CoinEx’s wallets got hacked for $54m and it seems like North Korea’s Lazarus organisation is responsible, on-chain sleuths found. Going through on-chain trails shows that Lazarus has stolen over $270 million dollars worth of crypto in the last 102 days.

The Tokenized Asset Coalition has been launched to bring more RWAs into crypto. The mission is to introduce standards and drive innovation, spearheaded by crypto-native protocols.

Stablecoin monitoring

GUSD liquidity declined from $2.2m to $1.7m. sUSD liquidity stayed flat at $6.9m. LUSD liquidity recovered from $5.1m to $5.7m, after last week’s drop. sUSD backing declined from 437% to 407%. LUSD backing stayed largely flat around 230%.

There are no significant oracle deviations between DEX and CEX prices.


stETH remains the heavyweight collateral across Gearbox with a share of 58.6% (+380bps vs last week). The growing importance of stETH requires monitoring to avoid the build-up of significant cluster risks.
