MIP6: Maker Collateral Application

Simple Summary

This consitutes the collateral onboarding process for Siren Markets and provides a formal procedure the review and acceptance of aforementioned collateral.


Siren Markets allows for the provision of assets, in a retrievable manner, to provide liquidity to the market with the goal of enabling a stable marketplace. The more liquidity is provisioned to the platform, the greater stability it can attain. At launch, a USDC-WBTC market is supported. In order to enable additional markets, such as $YFI, $MKR, or $WFIL there must be a formal procedure for the evaluation and addition of the asset. This must be done in order to ensure that only assets that have sufficient support and demand are added to the platform.

You could think about adding a “Security” section, which could include audits, common attack vectors, black swan situations and how they are dealt with / tackled by the technological design of the system etc.
Imo that should be part of the vetting process as available collateral should be as safe as possible.
Could also add some small factors like time of operation (how long the protocol is online for without attacks), whether some code was forked…
Thinking out loud.
Good idea!


this is good feedback - thanks, will include.
