Created in 2014, MakerDAO is one of the very first decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) to be created and to reach a key position in the Ethereum ecosystem. Its purpose is to run and manage the DAI stablecoin.


A stablecoin is a type of cryptocurrency designed to have the same value as a given fiat currency, like the US dollar.

To learn more, read our introduction to stablecoins.


A DAO, which stands for Decentralized Autonomous Organization, is a form of management structure with an open, transparent and participative governance that takes place on a blockchain. Decision making happens through a DAO's token holders, who can submit and vote for governance proposals.
