Competing Vesting Plans Hit the Forum

The Maker Community now has two vesting proposals out for public comment, with MIP53 and its’ Pre-MIP discussion stemming from the MKR Compensation Working Group’s efforts and a seperate Pre-MIP discussion put forward by the SES Core Unit. Both groups suggest that their recommendations be used as guidelines for Core Units that wish to adopt them, rather than mandates for the whole DAO.

Exit Polling for MIP49

Following the failed vote on MIP49, @prose11 has put up some exit polling questions to see if the proposal might move forward if amended. Swing by and leave your thoughts if you haven’t already.

Speaker Series: St. Louis Fed Senior VP

@PaperImperium hits the ground running, securing a BIG name for the first iteration of the new Speaker Series. Join us on June 29, 2021, at 15:00 UTC to hear David Andolfatto’s thoughts on Central Banks and DeFi.

SourceCred Update

The latest update on SourceCred on the Maker Instance is a juicy one. Updates had been delayed due to an issue with Maker’s tithe to SourceCred. Things are back on track, and as a result of switching the tithe to manual distribution temporarily, opted-in users will be getting a bit more DAI from SourceCred :dollar: .

Liquidations 2.0 Front-End Launched

Last Monday, the Liquidations 2.0 Portal launched. Providing easy participation access in collateral auctions to all interested parties. With flash loans enabled by the new upgrade to “Dutch” Auctions, anyone can participate without the need for excess liquidity. Check the portal out here.

State of the Peg

  • DAI peg steady even in the midst of a wild drawdown across crypto assets. The flight to stables continues.

  • And here we are waiting, with almost 5 billion in outstanding Dai.

  • On-chain slippage for DAI has become rock solid since the slope doesn’t even start climbing until almost two billion.

  • The five leading markets for DAI include Sushi, Binance, Uniswap v2, Coinbase, and DyDx. Yes, Binance has two substantial DAI pairs for Tether and ETH.

  • Average trading volume in Curve has been 97 million a day for DAI over the past month.

  • The top DAI balances are in Compound, Curve, Sushi, and

So close to 5 billion :yum:

    • PSM USDC 799 million
    • WBTC 424 million
    • ETH-C 270 million
    • USDC-A 240 million
    • LINK 110 million
    • PAX 88 million
    • YFI 65 million
    • ETH-B 43 million
    • UniV2DaiEth 29 Million
    • TUSD 26 million
    • UNI 21 million
    • UniV2UniEth 12 million

  • ETH vaults overall collateralization ratio at 334%.

  • Liquidation walls for all assets get steep just before 15%.

  • Collateral breakdowns on blockanalytica are awesome. Shout out to the team for making each collateral type more robust.
  • ETH-C has some interesting data around weighted debt collateral ratio (423%) and median debt ($32,924).

  • Comparing the same information to ETH-A, the top 10 vault’s share of the debt pool is less, and the median debt is smaller.

  • Top ten vaults in WBTC are more diverse than other large-cap Vault types. | |
