Key Takeaways

Gauntlet is excited to support Perennial V2 as a launch partner and ongoing risk management contributor. Perennial V2 is the latest and most advanced version of the Perennial derivatives protocol, which provides fast, cheap, and efficient perps trading.

Robust risk management is crucial to the sustainable operation and growth of perps protocols. Ensuring safety and efficiency requires a wide range of ongoing adjustments, from optimizing leverage and asset listings to fine-tuning funding rates and fees. To start, Gauntlet will perform a risk analysis of Perennial V2 and create specialized risk models. These models will operate continuously to provide real-time risk management insights and actionable recommendations on key risk parameters, including:

  • Maker and Taker Limits
  • Maintenance Margin Parameters
  • Liquidation and Position Fee Parameters
  • Interest Rate and PID Parameters

Finally, Gauntlet will soon publish a custom risk dashboard, which will contain key risk and utilization metrics and info on Gauntlet’s latest recommendations. To keep up with the dashboard launch and other news on the partnership, follow Gauntlet and Perennial for more updates.
