About Dai

Dai (DAI) is a decentralized stablecoin running on Ethereum (ETH) that attempts to maintain a value of $1.00 USD. Unlike centralized stablecoins, Dai isn't backed by US dollars in a bank account. Instead, it’s backed by collateral on the Maker platform. Note: if the Dai credit system is upgraded or shutdown, Dai holders may need to convert their Dai to Ethereum through the Maker platform.

Dai (DAI) is a stablecoin, a type of cryptocurrency that strives to keep its value stable relative to a specific asset or a pool of assets. In the case of Dai, it is soft-pegged to the U.S. dollar. It operates on the Ethereum blockchain and is managed by the Maker Protocol and the MakerDAO decentralized autonomous organization. Unlike other cryptocurrencies, Dai is not created by a single entity or a small group of founders. Instead, its development and issuance are governed by the MakerDAO and Maker Protocol, which are managed democratically by the holders of its Maker (MKR) governance tokens.
