Introducing Gauntlet

Hi Inter Protocol community,

At Gauntlet, we are excited to support the Inter Protocol and work with the Economic Committee as a partner and ongoing risk management contributor. Our goal is to be a resource as the community navigates the tradeoffs between risk and capital efficiency for the protocol by providing supporting risk analysis and parameter recommendations for existing assets and onboarding new collateral assets.

We are a DeFi-native quantitative research firm specializing in risk management, incentive optimization, and mechanism design. Gauntlet uses battle-tested techniques from the algorithmic trading industry to help protocols manage risk, optimize revenue, and design better incentives.

While we defer to the community for risk preferences, we are here to answer questions and provide analysis to help the community make data-driven decisions. We provided parameter recommendations for onboarding ATOM and going forward, we will keep the community informed by posting our recommendations in the forum. We always welcome community feedback, so please feel free to comment on our posts or reach out to us at and our Twitter at gauntlet_xyz.
