Current Events

Delegation and MakerDAO

@LongForWisdom formally introduces and outlines how the delegation system will operate within MakerDAO in this thread.

A soft launch of the MVP Delegation UI is set for August 2nd, with a hard launch following soon after. The remaining tasks include integrating leading custody holders into the delegation model, a stable release of the delegation UI, and only once multiple Recognized Delegates have actively engaged with the Maker Community.

If you’re interested in becoming a Delegate, the requirements can be seen here.

Flash Mint Implementation

The Flash Mint Module proposed in September 2020 launched with the June 18 Executive.

The contract is available on Etherscan.

Protocol Engineering Proposes L2 Risk Framework

The Protocol engineering team has posted a proposal for a risk assessment framework for Layer 2 solutions. This framework is aimed at helping Maker to decide how and if we should consider embracing these Layer 2 solutions.

Marketing Maker

Discussion on the need for additional marketing efforts started on the GnR call and took to the Forum in this thread. Opinions on the implementation of marketing efforts have been mixed: here and here, but many agree that additional marketing efforts are necessary.

The current sentiment seems to be split between Core Units (CUs) handling marketing internally and onboarding a Marketing-focused CU. Weigh-in on the thread.


MIPs Update #45

  • Several potential CUs, along with MIP52, did not pass their ratification polls.

State of DAI

  • DAI peg trading occasionally above premium with some large trades generating slippage, though this weekend’s rally has brought welcome milestones.

  • TVL is above 10 billion with 5.5 billion DAI outstanding.

  • Volume at around $1.98 Billion this last week lead by DEX’s again.

L2 DAI Growing

  • DAI on L2 has been steadily growing over the past month.

  • PSM USDC 3.1 billion
    • ETH-A 1.4 billion
    • USDC-A 238.8 million
    • WBTC 209.7 million
    • ETH-C 178.7 million
    • PAX 67.3 million
    • UniV2DaiUSDC 49.5 million
    • LINK 32.7 million
    • ETH-B 30.6 million
    • TUSD 26.5 million
    • UniV2DaiEth 24.5 million
    • YFI 19.5 million
    • UniV2WBTCEth 9.9 million
    • UniV2UniEth 8 million
    • UniV2UsdcEth 6.4 million
    • NSDROP 4.7 million
    • UNI 4 million
    • renBTC 2.8 million
    • BAT 1.8 million
    • MANA 1.5 million
    • ZRX 1.4 million
    • AAVE 1.3 million
    • LRC 876K
  • Other vaults below 500K (GUSD, KNC<>USDT, UniV2LINKETH UniV2AAVEETH, UniV2WbtcDai, UniV2DaiUsdt, UniV2EthUsdt, COMP) at 854k.

  • Seems like the UNILP rates change lead to the max debt ceiling in a couple of days, just over the 21-22nd alone 20 million DAI minted.

  • Liquidation walls for all collateral are in a much safer band, where a 25% collateral price drop is the threatening target.

  • Overall, ETH-A collateralization is above 300%, with the median debt jumping up

  • The largest ETH-A collateralization bucket is 200%. | | |
