Three-Point Summary

‘What do I need to know as an MKR Holder this week?’

  • Revenue down, but morale is up. The recent rates change is targeting more DAI creation outside of stablecoin facilities.
  • Over 6M DAI worth of Collateral was successfully liquidated last week without any loss events for Maker.
  • While still, in an impressive range, the slippage for trading DAI has increased in the last couple weeks, with slippage trades below 30,000 DAI at or above 0.1%
