This SCCP proposes to lower the maximum volume per block on all atomic exchanges to sUSD 500 thousand from sUSD 5 million per block.
The cap sets the maximum synth exchange volume per block in sUSD being traded using the atomic exchange contract.
The primary motivation is to lower the extent of damage from latency attacks, until better tools are in place which allows us to scale volume atomic exchanges while constraining latency attacks on the protocol. Mainly, SIP-267, SIP-268 and SIP-272.
