What is Maker?
Maker (MKR) is a cryptocurrency platform based on Ethereum. The main goal pursued by the project is to create a line of decentralized virtual assets, the value of which is directly linked to the price of the means of the material world, such as fiat currency, base metals, etc. A project of this type has been called a "stablecoin" - a stable coin. Project Maker itself is a decentralized platform, fully independent.
There are two currencies in the system - Dai, which supports the standard ERC20, and, actually, Maker or MKR, through which the financing of the project occurs. The main advantage of Maker is the decentralization of virtual currency, in other words, its users are fully autonomous financially and do not depend on the state or financial institutions. This virtual currency can be used in any country in the world without restrictions or control over financial transactions. The MKR token, was created for several reasons, firstly to attract investment in the project, and secondly, MKR holders are something like shareholders who influence the ecosystem by making decisions through universal voting.
