In a tweet Soland general what whale reacted to the team’s proposal to change its position on various lending protocols. The law reduces the use of USDC in Solend, allowing users to withdraw their assets again.

While this move appears to be a temporary solution to a larger liquidation problem, the Solend team dedicated that they are working with the whale and the Mango team to find a longer term solution to the underlying problem.

In addition, the credit protocol is also passed another governance vote that will significantly reduce the account’s borrowing limit, which currently stands between $120 million and $50 million. Debt above the new established limit is subject to liquidation regardless of the collateral value.

The protocol also reduced the amount that can be liquidated in a single transaction by lowering the maximum liquidation closing ratio to 1%. It also reduced the penalty for eliminating Solana from 5% to 2%. Both cuts are temporary and may change once the situation with the whales is resolved.

On June 19, lending platform Solend came under fire for its SLND1 governance vote, which aims to take over the whale’s wallet to mitigate risk. Voting ended with a 97% approval rating. However, it has received a lot of criticism as the move goes against the principles of decentralization.

Due to the backlash caused by the initial move, the lending platform decided to hold a second governance vote to cancel SLND1. The second proposal was approved, garnering 1,480,264 votes in favor of ignoring the wallet takeover plan.
