Making iTokens more Redeemable

For iTokens to be utilized as collateral and to be integrated into other protocols all iTokens must be able to be redeemed. We do not expect everyday users to use the Deleverage and Withdraw function but anyone can use this. There are some risks when using the deleverage function if it us utilized under the wrong market conditions the caller of the deleverage can incur losses.
Deleverage and Withdraw can cause losses to your deposit if executed during negative market conditions. Please see below.

The Deleverage option is in the Withdrawal menu

Deleverging during a Market Downturn

If the vault is deleveraged during a depeg or another event which would cause the vault to lose value as a result of the deleverage being executed, the caller of the deleverage will pay for the losses incurred in the deleverage.
