Risk parameters

Loan To Value

The maximum amount that can be borrowed for a specific mortgage is determined by the Loan To Value (LTV) ratio. For example, if the LTV is 75%, borrowers will be allowed to borrow 0.75 ETH worth of corresponding currency for every 1 ETH worth of collateral.

Liquidation Threshold

The liquidation threshold is the percentage at which a position is defined as undercollateralised. For example, a Liquidation threshold of 80% means that if the value rises above 80% of the collateral, the position is undercollateralised and could be liquidated.

The difference between the Loan To Value and the Liquidation Threshold is a safety cushion for borrowers.

Health Factor

For a wallet, these risk parameters enable the calculation of the health factor:

Liquidation penalty

Liquidation penalty is a bonus applied to the price of collateral assets purchased by liquidators as part of the liquidation of a loan that has reached the liquidation threshold.

Reserve Factor

The reserve factor allocates a share of the protocol's interests to a collector contract as reserve for the ecosystem.

Price Discovery

The frequency of price updates is determined by the liquidation strategy. We use a margin method, which means that prices are refreshed whenever the deviation exceeds a certain threshold. For the price feed, we rely on Chainlink's decentralized oracles.
