- MakerDAO now has a proposal to make some parameter changes.
- Lido was displaced by the protocol, allowing it to regain its place as the most popular DeFi protocol.

According to the proposal, due to the general decline in liquidity for smaller assets and Avi Eisenberg’s market manipulations that led to the siphoning of $114 million out of decentralized crypto exchange (DEX) Mango Markets, fewer long-tail assets are now accepted as collateral in the crypto lending world.
Long-tail assets refer to cryptocurrencies that are in circulation for a long time, but have little or no trading volume. DeFi protocols use these crypto assets to create liquidity and float pools.
Per the new proposal, MakerDAO’s Aave-DAI Direct Deposit Module (Aave D3M) is being proposed to be reactivated with a limited debt ceiling, and the Compound v2 D3M debt ceiling would be increased.
Stability fees for the protocol’s WSTETH-B vault type would also be normalized. In order to stop an increase in exposure, additional fees would be added on the USDP PMSM.
The Open Market Committee states that these changes, if implemented by the Open Market Committee will result in an increase in annual revenue of approximately 525,000 DAI as well as an increase in COMP Rewards for the Maker Treasury from the Compound D3M.
MakerDAO retakes the DeFi king’s place
MakerDAO was briefly overtaken by Lido Finance as the top liquid ETH staking site. In the last week, this caused a significant increase in the value of Lido’s governance token LDO.
