Dai Short Description

The​ ​Dai​ ​Stablecoin​ ​is​ ​a​ ​collateral-backed​ ​cryptocurrency​ ​whose​ ​value​ ​is​ ​stable​ ​relative​ ​to​ ​the US​ ​Dollar.​ ​We​ ​believe​ ​that​ ​stable​ ​digital​ ​assets​ ​like​ ​Dai​ ​Stablecoin​ ​are​ ​essential​ ​to​ ​realizing the​ ​full​ ​potential​ ​of​ ​blockchain​ ​technology.

Maker​ ​is​ ​a​ ​smart​ ​contract​ ​platform​ ​on​ ​Ethereum​ ​that​ ​backs​ ​and​ ​stabilizes​ ​the​ ​value​ ​of​ ​Dai through​ ​a​ ​dynamic​ ​system​ ​of​ ​Collateralized​ ​Debt​ ​Positions​ ​(CDPs),​ ​autonomous​ ​feedback mechanisms,​ ​and​ ​appropriately​ ​incentivized​ ​external​ ​actors.

Maker​ ​enables​ ​anyone​ ​to​ ​leverage​ ​their​ ​Ethereum​ ​assets​ ​to​ ​generate​ ​Dai​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Maker Platform.​ ​Once​ ​generated,​ ​Dai​ ​can​ ​be​ ​used​ ​in​ ​the​ ​same​ ​manner​ ​as​ ​any​ ​other cryptocurrency:​ ​it​ ​can​ ​be​ ​freely​ ​sent​ ​to​ ​others,​ ​used​ ​as​ ​payments​ ​for​ ​goods​ ​and​ ​services,​ ​or held​ ​as​ ​long​ ​term​ ​savings.​ ​Importantly,​ ​the​ ​generation​ ​of​ ​Dai​ ​also​ ​creates​ ​the​ ​components needed​ ​for​ ​a​ ​robust​ ​decentralized​ ​margin​ ​trading​ ​platform..
