Leveraging deterministic and stochastic models, network-wide simulations, and real-time market surveillance allows Hover to minimize market challenges.

This enterprise-scale risk management will place Hover levels above any other protocol within the Kava ecosystem regarding market surveillance. Moreover, Ledger Works’ suite of solutions will inform optimal lending terms for Hover’s markets, optimizing total protocol efficiency.

Ledger Works offers integrated risk management services that combine cyber, operational, and financial risk controls into a unified dashboard with real-time computational models and rules that enable continuous market surveillance for market-wide and decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol-specific risks.

Key features of Ledger Works solutions for Hover will include:

  • Real-time market surveillance through intuitive dashboards and alerts.
  • Cyber risk monitoring alerts to identify potential exploits and vulnerabilities.
  • Operational risk monitoring alerts to identify protocol issues proactively.
  • Financial risk parameter recommendations, including Collateral Factor, Reserve Factor, and Borrow Cap.
  • Event response support services during extreme market conditions.

Ledger Works is expanding its machine learning environment to leverage extensive data sets, existing rules, and financial models. This initiative aims to provide faster and more effective risk identification and response mechanisms.

Meanwhile, Ledger Works has over 100 years of combined experience in security, risk management, and big data systems. Their CEO, David Melnick, held a national partner role in Deloitte’s Enterprise Risk Services practice before launching Ledger Works.

Steve Elfanbaum, the chief technical offer (CTO), previously was co-founder and principal at Asynchrony Solutions. At the same time, their chief data scientist, Chintan Mehta, earned a Ph.D. from Princeton University and completed extensive postdoctoral work at Yale University.

Initially collaborating with the team while at Bridgewater Associates, Chintan brings his expertise in deterministic and stochastic modeling to coordinate the engineering and data science efforts at Ledger Works.
