Three Point Summary

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

  • This week’s market volatility brought some liquidations, with total DAI supply falling off an ATH to 1.4B
  • Demand for the PSM brings the new vault type to its DC, with plenty of room still available for legacy USDC-A vaults
  • The DAI VWAP for last week was very strong, with most trades between $0.999-1.002
