About Maker

About MakerDAO and the Maker Foundation

MakerDAO is a smart contract platform on the Ethereum blockchain that backs and dynamically stabilizes the value of the Dai stablecoin. Dai, the world’s first unbiased currency, is part of the growing universe of Decentralized Finance (DeFi). There are no central operating actors at MakerDAO-- both its code (or protocol) and governing community are decentralized. The Maker Foundation was formed to bootstrap the protocol, governance operations and community development. The Foundation includes over 80 people who are building the framework for MakerDAO to successfully thrive on its own.
