[MRC-86] milkTIA, AKT Cap Increases


The objective of this proposal is to increase the cap of the following assets on the Osmosis outpost as follows:

  • milkTIA from 50,000 to 100,000 milkTIA.
  • AKT from 200,000 to 400,000 AKT.


The caps for these assets are currently filled. This suggests there’s potentially additional (currently unmet) demand to use these assets within the Mars Osmosis Outpost. This proposal aims to allow Mars to meet that additional demand.


The deposit caps serve two main purposes:

  1. They limit the exposure to any single token. This is important to mitigate idiosyncratic risks specific to any particular token and to mitigate liquidity risk, which may impede proper functioning of the liquidations system and could ultimately lead to bad debt.
  2. They mitigate looping attacks in which attackers are able to generate artificially large positions of certain tokens with the purpose of subsequently manipulating their price and effectively stealing assets from the protocol.

As the caps increase, so do the risks explored above. At the end of the day, a right level of the caps should strike the right balance between risk aversion and protocol usefulness. In this sense, we believe that while the proposed caps do increase risk for the protocol, it is still conservative given the liquidity levels of the assets.


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.

Why has the builder multisig not made the parameter change after all this time?
