Realizing the potential of the blockchain.

Maker Introduction

MakerDAO is “Decentralized Autonomous Organization” (“DAO”) operating on the Ethereum blockchain. At its core, MakerDAO permits the creation of a decentralized ‘stablecoin’ on Ethereum called Dai. A stablecoin is a token that seeks to eliminate price volatility, effectively tracking the price of a fiat currency like the US dollar. 1 Dai = 1 USD. In contrast to Dai which is a stablecoin that is suitable for payments and savings, MKR is a token that has a volatile price because of its unique supply mechanics and role on the Maker platform. MKR is a utility token, governance token and recapitalization resource of the Maker system.
