· MakerDAO Requests Collateral Parameters Change for DAI
In light of how volatile the crypto market has been in the recent past, MakerDAO’s Risk Core Unit has requested changes in the collateral parameters for the DAO’s stablecoin, Dai.
The message proposed that the debt ceiling for MATIC, LINK, YFI and renBTC vaults be reduced by the following amounts:
MATIC: from 20 million to 10 million (50%)
LINK: from 25 million to 5 million (80%)
YFI: from 10 million to 3 million (70%)
renBTC: from 10 million to zero (100%)
If the proposal passes, it will reduce the number of tokens that can be used as collateral to mint new Dai.
Why Does it Matter? Following the FTX news, crypto markets have been extremely volatile. Some of the tokens backing Dai are already dangerously close to the debt ceiling. The unit has mentioned that the proposal is only to curtail temporary setbacks from the current crypto scenario.
· Tron DAO Invests in $1B USDT
Tron DAO, a community-focused body that supports development on the Tron network, is purchasing $1B worth of tether (USDT) stablecoins to safeguard against a market decline.
Initially, the DAO made an announcement that it would be buying $300,00,000 USDT in the market. It followed that up with an update saying it would purchase $1B.
USDT was depegged from its $1 mark due to the FTX news. Tether has been processing payments at the $1 mark despite the depeg.
