I love that they took my suggestion into consideration!!! how great!


I had not noticed that he added loopring :face_with_hand_over_mouth:, it is incredible to see that there is no corner where DAI is not there. :eyes:


really love this report.

Can I ask in the first chart - where is my DAI? Can you give me some idea of what the 49% is doing.?

Also I am wondering in this weekly report can we get a report on the following:

Maker protocol DAI interest earned for the week?
DAI borrowed?
DAI repaid?
and net DAI in the markets (DAI borrowed - DAI repaid).

Since all DAI originates in main net vaults I think the key metric is to look at DAI generation as well as DAI payments. Also since MakerDAO and MKR holders all benefit from DAI earned for the week this would be a nice graphic (weekly DAI earned) :slight_smile:

Please and Thank you in advance.

I know this isn’t DAI on Different networks so if there is another report with these numbers please point me to it. If there is no such report please consider adding the above and changing this report to be a state of DAI in the World!


Is there any way to track the DAI that left optimism? Did it leave Uniswap v3? Surprised to see folks move out with a 7-day waiting period.

Also, would it possible to add Solana based dApps like SolApes? They’re moving DAI over via their wormhole bridge. If possible—if not no worries. Thanks I’m advanced!


Been wondering the same! I’ll pass it along as soon as I find something on that front.

As for Solana - look like they actually just updated their explorer to allow for token searches, so we got that going for us!

And here’s the top holder, but for the life of me - can’t find the project it’s tied to.


:fire: :fire:

You the man Alec!

If I was a betting man–I’d say it’s FTX.
thanks again bud.


Awesome feedback MM. We’ll need to up our game on the dashboards but these are great stats to look out for.


Just noticed I missed your top question! The ‘Other’ category is an aggregate of Aragon, PulseChain and Torando Cash.

Lovin the suggestions, the SQLs a bit above me but trying to get some charts worked out with the team.
