Chaos Labs Partners with Nexus Mutual for the RAMM Economic Security Audit
We're thrilled to share our partnership with Nexus Mutual! After an extensive RFP process, the Nexus Mutual Foundation selected Chaos Labs as an economic security and risk partner. This collaboration is set to fortify the future of the Ratcheting AMM (RAMM) design, a critical component of the Nexus Mutual protocol.
RAMM Economic Security Audit Scope
Chaos Labs will construct Agent-Based Monte Carlo simulations to conduct an economic audit of the RAMM design and will work with the Foundation Engineering and DAO R&D teams as the new tokenomics development progresses. Here's a closer look at what this partnership will encompass:
- RAMM Mechanism Design: An exhaustive review of the RAMM mechanism will test its robustness during ordinary and volatile market circumstances.
- RAMM Parameter Assessment: Chaos Labs will derive crucial insights from the simulation analysis into the RAMM parameters configuration and recommend possible enhancements or changes.
- Safeguarding Against Manipulation: Chaos Labs will research economic vulnerabilities and attack vectors and devise strategies to shield the mechanism from such risks.
The Chaos team has already started working, with the initial 8-10 weeks focused on design review, manipulation analysis, and building the simulation framework for the Stage 1 implementation of the RAMM.
After completing the above, we will move to the next stage, encompassing simulations, result analysis, and recommendations, which will be shared in a publicly available report.
