[Gauntlet] Weekly Market Update: Ethereum USDC (7/21/23 - 7/28/23)

Gauntlet would like to provide the community with an update on metrics from the Ethereum USDC comet over the past week and will include any relevant recommendations.

Simple Summary

  • Gauntlet has an outstanding proposal to increase supply caps for WBTC, LINK, and UNI. Otherwise, Gauntlet recommends no additional changes at this time.
  • Based on community preferences, we will more aggressively move to deprecate the v2 market in favor of v3.
  • USDC borrows are down 0.51%.
  • USDC supply is down 1.88%. However, on the date of this post, a user deposited $45.4M USDC, increasing the USDC supply by 9.8%. This will be included in the market update next week.
  • The comet accumulated $43.6k USDC reserves over the past week, with an average reserve growth of 14.1%.
  • The comet distributed $230.3k COMP rewards over the past week, for a Net Protocol Profit of -$186.7k.

Analysis

Below are metrics of the market and parameters over the past week.

Market Growth

Total Collateral (USD) is down 0.77%, from $748.65M to $742.87M.

USDC Borrows are down 0.51%, from $363.31M to $361.45M.

USDC Supply is down 1.88%, from $387.69M to $380.41M. However, on the date of this post, a user deposited $45.4M USDC, increasing the USDC supply by 9.8% to $425.63M. This will be included in the market update next week.

Supply Caps

As seen above, WBTC (75.2%), COMP (90.5%), LINK (100%), and UNI (100%), all have supply cap utilizations > 75%. We have an outstanding proposal to increase supply caps for WBTC, LINK, and UNI, and we recommend not increasing the COMP supply cap due to lower liquidity.

Above is a time series of supply cap utilization for each asset over the past week.

Utilization and Reserves

The minimum USDC utilization was 93.7%, and the maximum was 97.9%.

The minimum USDC reserve growth was 4.4%, and the maximum was 18.3%. The average USDC reserve growth was 14.1%.

The comet steadily accumulated $43.6k USDC reserves, while distributing $230.3k COMP rewards, for a weekly Net Protocol Profit of -$186.7k.

[Gauntlet] Ethereum v3 USDC Update (08/11/2023 - 08/17/2023)

Gauntlet would like to provide the community with an update on metrics from the Ethereum v3 USDC comet over the past week.

Simple Summary

  • USDC Borrows are down 12.18%, from $396.27M to $348.01M.
  • USDC Supply is up 2.14%, from $398.26M to $406.77M.

  • The comet accumulated $28.21k USDC reserves while distributing $171.5k COMP rewards for a weekly Net Protocol Profit of -$143.29k.

Note that, as of today, USDC supply has decreased to $351M and USDC borrows have decreased to $298M. These updates will be included in the weekly update next week.

A large reason USDC borrows have decreased is due to liquidations in the recent market downturn, particularly the user with address 0x930af7923b8b5f8d3461ad1999ceeb8a62884b19. This user supplied $35.97M collateral (98.5% WETH, 1.5% COMP) and borrowed $28.37M USDC.

As a result of the recent liquidations, Ethereum v3 USDC reserves have increased from $1.39M to $2.93M (+$1.54M), effectively increasing total Compound USDC reserves across v2 and v3 comets by ~10%.
