[MRC-89] LTV Adjustments


The objective of this proposal is to increase the LTVs of the following assets as follows:

On Osmosis:

  • TIA Liquidation LTV from 55 to 73%. TIA Max. LTV from 53.5% to 72%.
  • milkTIA Liquidation LTV from 50 to 68%. TIA Max. LTV from 48.5% to 67%.

On Neutron:

  • axlUSDC Liquidation LTV from 75% to 80%. axlUSDC Max. LTV from 74% to 79.5%.
  • NTRN Liquidation LTV from 40% to 55%. NTRN Max. LTV from 35% to 54%.
  • ATOM Liquidation LTV from 70% to 75%. ATOM Max. LTV from 68% to 74%.
  • wstETH Liquidation LTV from 70% to 75%. wstETH Max. LTV from 68% to 73%.

These proposed changes are the result of running the Mars Risk Framework over the current list of assets supported on Mars.


These increases respond to running the Mars Risk Framework and updating the parameters as suggested. We believe that the LTV increases will make the protocol more efficient and promote organic usage of the platform.


All else equal, higher LTVs translate into more risk for the platform. The higher the LTV, the more a depositor of a given asset can borrow from the platform. As such, the higher the LTVs, the more aggressive the risk parameters are. Having said that, these changes are the result of running the Mars Risk Framework, which by itself is very conservative. As such, while it is true that the changes increase the market risk for the platform, we don’t think they put the protocol at the risk of insolvency.


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.

I’m very supportive of adjusting for allowing higher LTV’s on TIA! It still feels conservative at the new LTV target

When will the milkTIA LTV be increased?
