What is Maker (MKR)?

Maker is one the biggest and longest-standing DeFi protocols that run on the Ethereum blockchain. It is designed to offer a stable, decentralized, and scalable platform for borrowing and lending digital assets. Maker was introduced in 2014 by Rune Christensen, and had a highly successful fundraising campaign in 2017 that attracted $12 million from the likes of Andreessen Horowitz. Since then, it has grown to become one of the most popular DeFi protocols, with the current TVL of over $7.54 billion. The highest TVL of Maker was approximately $20 billion.

How Maker (MKR) Works

Maker's core product is the DAI stablecoin, which is the first stablecoin in the world and it is pegged to the value of the US dollar. Users can lock their digital assets as collateral and mint DAI in exchange. This creates a demand for DAI, which helps to maintain its stability. The Maker protocol uses a system of smart contracts to automate the process of generating and redeeming DAI. The system is governed by MKR token holders, who vote on proposals that determine the direction of the protocol.

The Maker protocol operates on a collateralized debt position (CDP) system, which allows users to lock up their digital assets and borrow DAI against them. The amount of DAI that can be borrowed is determined by the value of the collateral. If the value of the collateral falls below a certain level, the system automatically liquidates the CDP and sells the collateral to pay off the debt.

How Many Maker (MKR) Tokens Are in Circulation?

MKR is the governance token of the Maker protocol. Holders of MKR have the right to vote on proposals that determine the direction of the protocol. There are 1,005,577 MKR tokens in total supply, and the circulating supply is 977,631.
