[MRC-72] TIA LTV Increase


The objective of this proposal is to increase the Maximum LTV and Liquidation LTV for TIA. When TIA was initially listed, the LTV parameters were fairly conservative. This proposal seeks to adjust the LTV parameters to reflect the liquidity and volatility conditions of the asset.

LTV Update

We propose to increase the LTV parameters as follows:

  • Max. LTV from 39% to 53.5%.
  • Liquidation LTV from 40% to 55%.


Based on our methodology, the current liquidity conditions of TIA support these increased LTVs. Previously, the LTV parameters were more conservative as the liquidity and volatility conditions were unknown at the time. This could unnecessarily restrict usage of TIA within Mars. Now that more data is available on the liquidity and volatility of TIA, this proposal aims to fix this by increasing the LTVs and adjust them accordingly.


As the LTVs increase, so do the risks for the protocol. While this is true, we believe that the above proposed LTVs are still conservative given the high liquidity levels of the asset, both onchain and offchain.


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.

Seems very conservative to me which is fine. Makes sense if you wanna slowly ramp things up but I think with the liquidity and depth on CEXs for TIA it could go higher.
