What is DAI?

DAI is a very popular stablecoin on today’s market. Backed by a system of smart contracts, DAI is pegged to the US dollar meaning that 1 DAI will always equal $1. DAI was created by MakerDAO, an Ethereum-powered DeFi lending platform that allows lending and borrowing cryptocurrency without involving intermediaries.

When you lock Ether in MakerDAO’s smart contracts, you create a corresponding amount of DAI tokens. ETH that you lock acts as collateral and once you decide to unlock it, you need to pay it back as well as add some fees.

DAI coin can be traded on the majority of exchanges and can be also used to pay for goods and services online.
