[MRC-38] AXL Oracle Migration and Cap Increase


This proposal has 2 objectives:

  1. Migrate the price source for AXL from the current TWAP based approach to Pyth. In a recently executed proposal we outlined why it was necessary to migrate most asset price sources from Osmosis TWAPs to Pyth. In this sense, the migration of AXL would be just a continuation of that process.
  2. Increase the AXL deposit cap from 200,000 AXL to 400,000 AXL. The current AXL cap of 200,000 AXL was quickly filled. This suggests that there’s additional demand to use the asset as collateral within the Red Bank. This proposal aims to meet that additional demand and increase organic usage of the Red Bank, while maintaining a conservative risk exposure to the asset, following our recently presented Deposit Caps Methodology.


Oracle Migration:

We propose to migrate from the current approach to Pyth as the price source for AXL as follows:

Current Approach Proposed Approach

Deposit Cap:

We ran AXL through our recently proposed Deposit Caps Methodology. The maximum cap suggested for AXL is 600,000 AXL. As such, we believe that 400,000 AXL is still a conservative cap for the token. For a more detailed understanding of the most recent caps calculation check this forum post.
