MakerDAO Consider Depegging DAI to the Dollar
The co-founder of MakerDAO published a post reflecting on the future of cryptocurrencies in light of sanctions and politics. The key message of the post is that the DAI stablecoin has no choice but to abandon the dollar peg. And also to strengthen decentralization.
Christensen is confident that the impact of government policies and sanctions on the MakerDAO protocol needs to be urgently reduced. His proposal includes changing the structure of the RWA (Risk-weighted asset) and reducing the percentage of dollar collateral. This means that the rate of the stablecoin will become “floating”. But so far, the MakerDAO co-founder is not proposing or voicing any concrete action.
