Weekly RiskDAO report 27 Oct '23

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


This week BTC crossed $35k, up over 15% in 24 hours, as BlackRock’s Bitcoin ETF gets its ticker (IBTC) published, making Cointelegraph “fake” news from last week’s report a bit closer to reality.

Morpho announced MetaMorpho - a 2nd layer for permissionless lending on top of its recently launched DeFi lending primitive - Morpho Blue.

LUSD redemptions at over 200% collateral ratio due to continuous selling pressure probably coming from Maker’s DSR strategies. You can track the latest Trove redemption rates on this Dune dashboard.

Stablecoin monitoring

Here’s a summary of this week’s main changes in the stablecoin monitoring section -

Asset Liquidity ($) 7d change Backing Ratio (7d change)
GUSD 1.39M -$0.21M (13%)
sUSD 6.03M +$1.43M (31%) 449.42% (+4200bps)
LUSD 8.7M +$0.4m (4.8%) 292.86% (+4200bps)

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


stETH keeps on growing its dominance, holding 62.35% of all collateral across Gearbox, an extra 325bps from last week. The growing importance of stETH requires monitoring to avoid the build-up of significant cluster risks.
