What is Maker?

Maker is a governance token to the MakerDAO and Maker Protocol. It is separately a decentralized organization while also a software platform with both being based on the Ethereum blockchain that enables users to issue and manage the DAI stablecoin.

The idea was initially formed in 2015 and then completely launched in December 2017. The task of the project is to operate DAI, a community-managed decentralized cryptocurrency with a stable value soft-pegged to the US dollar.

MKR tokens has the role of a voting share for the organization that oversees DAI; while they don’t pay dividends to their holders, they do provide the holders voting rights regarding the development of Maker Protocol. They are expected to appreciate in value in harmony with the success of DAI itself.

The Maker ecosystem is one of the few early projects on the decentralized finance DeFi scene. This is the industry that seeks to create decentralized financial products on top of smart-contract-enabled blockchains, such as Ethereum.

Team 

MakerDAO was established in 2015 by Rune Christensen who is an entrepreneur from Sealand, Denmark.

Graduating from Copenhagen University with a degree in biochemistry, Christensen studied international business at the Copenhagen Business School. Preceding to MakerDAO, he co-founded and operated the Try China international recruiting company.

The Maker Foundation set ut with the aim of bootstrapping MakerDAO to drive growth and move the organization toward the direction of complete decentralization. While the Foundation provided growth assistance through the launch of Multi-Collateral Dai (MCD), it is currently leading attempts to decentralize development.

Roadmap

As MCD shifts nearer to launch, the community’s high level of engagement will be vital in accomplishing the following crucial governance milestones:

•    The Maker Foundation will work with the governance community to plan the work to come and realize how the procedure should be handled and debated. 
•    Publication of the Collateral Onboarding Guide and Application Form. 
•    The Maker Foundation Interim Risk Team will release a Risk Framework document. 
•    Evaluation of the collateral types, as prioritized by the community, will start with talks around the qualitative and quantitative models offered by the Interim Risk Team. 
•    The process will conclude with an Executive Vote by MKR holders to officially confirm the work of the Governance and Risk process before launch.
