The objective of this proposal is to list AKT on the Osmosis outpost of the Red Bank.
Akash Network is an open-source Supercloud that allows users to buy and sell computing resources. Akash is aiming to rival current traditional cloud service providers by providing a decentralized marketplace for cloud compute resources.
AKT plays several roles within the Akash Network. It’s used as the gas, staking and governance token within the network, as well as being used for payments in the cloud compute marketplace. AKT stakers receive a share of marketplace fees.
Additionally, AKT is one of the largest and most liquid and popular assets on Cosmos which hasn’t yet been listed on Mars. As such, it’s a straightforward asset to propose listing as collateral on the Red Bank. We believe this listing will further promote organic usage of Mars.
In the sections below we’ll explore the risks associated with listing AKT and the proposed risk parameters for the listing.
The lack of public audits or an active bug bounty increase the risks of listing AKT from a technical risk perspective. This risk could materialize in a number of ways and considerably impact AKT the asset, which could expose Mars to insolvency risk.
|Time Since Launch||Ideal||Akash Network launched mainnet on September 25, 2020.|
|Custom Public Audit||Not met||We were unable to find any public audits for Akash Network.|
|No Critical Vulnerabilities||Ideal||No critical vulnerabilities have been exploited.|
|Bug Bounty Program||Not met||There is currently no bug bounty active for the Akash Network.|
In terms of centralization risk, the asset meets the minimum requirements suggested by the Mars risk framework:
|Owner Decentralization||Ideal||The Akash Network is fully decentralized and governed by AKT holders.|
|Admin Decentralization||Ideal||No upgrade keys - AKT token holders vote for upgrades using the standard Cosmos chain upgrade process.|
|Other permissioned addresses||Ideal||No other permissioned addresses.|
We propose to use the Pyth AKT/USD feed.

This is a signaling proposal, not an executable proposal.
The Mars smart contracts on the Osmosis chain are currently controlled by the Builder Multisig address. If this proposal passes, the builders will utilize their multisig to make the necessary parameter changes.
