Risk Management


JustLend DAO Protocol is a money market that enables loans via liquidity pools in the different currencies proposed across various markets. Suppliers receive derivative jTokens, representing the cryptocurrency supply.

The liquidity of the protocol is the availability of capital to meet different business scenarios. It is a key metric, as a lack of liquidity will block business.

At any point in time, utilization, which is the share of the total supply of coins that have been lent out by various markets, is an important indicator of the liquidity of the JustLend DAO Protocol.

In this section, we dive into JustLend DAO’s liquidity risk by analyzing the availability of JustLend DAO‘s assets. Then we look at the valuation of jTokens, illiquid assets often suffer from illiquidity discounts due to the difficulty to find counterparties. The utilization and jToken valuation help us assess the level of liquidity risk of the protocol. Once this risk is understood, we can put in place risk management techniques through the borrow interest rate model.
