Funding Rate Bounding Research
Today, dYdX bounds funding rates to a range between -0.75% and 0.75%. This research will explore the impact these limits have on dYdX markets, including a study of market behaviour when funding rates are trading near or at the limits and a peer analysis of other exchanges. The research will deliver a recommendation for updating the limits, and push forward a governance proposal to the existing on-chain parameters (on StarkEx).
Risk Parameter Framework
As part of the V4 migration, the community will take ownership of all risk parameters for dYdX trading system (maintenance margin, position size, etc..). This research will present a framework for the community to appropriately assess these risks and make adjustments as needed. The grant includes an initial proposal to make changes based on the framework.
