What is Maker?

Copy link to section

MakerDAO is an Ethereum-based platform used to generate a stablecoin called MKR, which is pegged to the value of the US dollar. Maker‘s native cryptocurrency (MKR) is an Ethereum token that governs the entire platform. While MKR does not vary in price, MKR has the potential to be just as volatile as any other cryptocurrency.

How does Maker work?

Copy link to section

It lets users deposit cryptocurrency like Ethereum as collateral to generate MKR. The system requires collateralisation ratios to remain above certain levels and the amount of MKR that can be generated depends on the value of the collateral deposited. For example, a coin like ETH can create more MKR than a small altcoin. 

Smart contracts are used to hold collateral and are programmed to liquidate if the collateral drops too much automatically. This helps to ensure the network remains solvent. 

How is the Maker network secured?

Copy link to section

The Maker network is secured by the blockchain it runs on. Validators, or ‘keepers’ on the network, are responsible for executing smart contracts to make sure the system runs smoothly. Validators are rewarded with MRK tokens for their work in securing the network. 

What is Maker used for?

Copy link to section

Maker is mostly used for decentralised finance (DeFi), such as lending, borrowing, trading, and other financial activities. The network has gained popularity due to its stability and applications can be built and used without the risk of significant price fluctuations. 

Why does MKR have value?

Copy link to section

MKR can be used for governing the Maker DAO and as a form of payment for transactions and network fees. The demand for MKR may increase as the platform becomes more popular and widely adopted. 

Who created Maker?

Copy link to section

Rune Christensen created Maker in 2015 and currently serves as the organisation’s chief executive officer. A crowdfunding campaign was initially used to fund the project, but it has since grown into one of the most popular DeFi platforms on the Ethereum network.

Where can I buy Maker?

Copy link to section

You can buy Maker on either a centralised cryptocurrency exchange (CEX) or decentralized exchange (DEX), depending on its availability. An exchange is a marketplace that allows you to sign up, deposit your money, and buy some crypto, just as you would with a stock trading platform.

Our guide on how & where to buy Maker explains step-by-step exactly how to get started with a reliable crypto exchange, or via one of the most popular decentralized exchanges.

Most cryptocurrency brokers allow you to keep the coins you buy in your account. However, you may want to sign up for a dedicated crypto wallet for some extra security.

Are there any other ways to invest in Maker?

Copy link to section

The simplest way to invest in Maker is to buy it outright. However, another option is to simply open a crypto account. Crypto accounts are like regular bank accounts and allow you to store a variety of currencies, send and receive payments, earn interest on savings, and spend freely with a credit card.

You can also invest in crypto more generally through a crypto ETF or a crypto fund. These are financial instruments that give you exposure to a group of leading cryptocurrencies, more suited to high net worth individuals.
