The advantages of DAI Stablecoin in DeFi space
Born from the perquisites that blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies bring to the financial services sector, DeFi has become the fastest-growing movement in the crypto industry in 2020. Organizations that implement crypto products into their financial services find DeFi valuable as it enables them to provide inexpensive, efficient, and transparent financial offerings. While decentralized finance projects on ETH integrate different types of digital currencies, Maker Protocol's decentralized DAI stablecoin has quickly become one of the most used cryptos in the DeFi space.
Backed by a surplus of collateral and generated via the Maker Protocol, DAI is stable digital cash with values softly pegged to the USD. Built on the Ethereum platform, every DAI is worth 1 USD.
Since it is fully decentralized, stability is sustained through an autonomous system of smart contracts. Utilized as an anchored medium of exchange, DAI Stablecoins can be used to serve a multitude of purposes such as:
Repayment of debts
Payment for goods and services
DAI's merits and usability has given the DeFi community a high degree of credence to the attributes of the Maker Protocols and stablecoins. This confidence has further contributed to the vibrancy, growth, and the overall network effectiveness of the Maker ecosystem.
At present, DAI has a market capitalization of $423 million and assets worth hundreds of thousands of dollars locked in the system.
How DAI maintains its price stability?
As stated earlier, DAI is a stablecoin that is softly pegged to the US Dollar. That means that the price value of one DAI will approximately always be equal to 1 USD. It is built on the Ethereum network and is backed by Ether, meaning that it is decentralized and the stability is sustained through smart contracts without relying on any centralized third party.
The price stability is managed via a system of lending on the Ethereum network. To create DAI, a person with Ether would deposit ETH into what is named as "collateralized debt position", which is basically a personal smart vault that stores your ETH. In return for depositing ETH in the form of collateral, DAI is generated to the Ethereum holder.
To unlatch ETH, the DAI holder pays back the DAI with a stability fee. If the value of 1 DAI drops below 1 USD, the stability fee is hiked to make DAI loans expensive. If the loans are overpriced, fewer loans will be generated, retracting DAI's supply and driving up the price. Similarly, if the price of 1 DAI surpasses the 1 USD mark, the stability fee is brought down, leading to lower prices and increased supply in the market.
Rather than being manipulated or determined by a government or a centralized financial institution, the stability fee is voted by a community of MKR holders, the token for the MakerDAO system. Eventually, the entire process of maintaining DAI's price stability is based on the supply and demand chain within the lending system.
How DeFi can reshape the traditional financial landscape
The traditional financial system pivots on financial institutions like central banks. They function as intermediaries and need governance for the resolution of controversial issues.
DeFi products do not require any intermediaries or arbitration from any third parties. While smart contracts settle transactional disputes, users monitor and control their funds. This facilitates a more transparent financial system and reduces the overall cost of services. Besides eliminating middlemen, DeFi provides crypto enthusiasts with the following benefits.
As a core philosophy of decentralized finance, it favours network effects while creating true innovations of combining layer 2 or even layer 3 applications.
Price and market efficiency harbours increased transparency of financial systems. As asymmetric information is non-existent, principal-agent risks are minimal and the personal interests are governed by transparent protocols.
DeFi applications enable users to remain in possession of private keys. Also referred to as non-custodial in the blockchain segment, users have full authority and access to their money without a trusted third party.
True decentralization offers censorship resistance, dispenses middlemen, and facilitates worldwide participation irrespective of the social status.
Implementation of blockchain as technological infrastructure enables contract automation, relatively fast and low-cost transactions, and immutability of the financial contracts.
DAI offers liquidity to the DeFi movement
Liquidity in finance refers to the ease with which an asset could be converted into cash without affecting its market price. For DeFi, liquidity is essential to create successful projects on top of the Maker Protocol and Ethereum network.
Shared liquidity amplifies trading volumes, bringing forth roadmaps to attract more users and enabling projects to streamline crypto services in accordance with user demands.
Nevertheless, amidst increased eminence of DeFi products, permissibility can only be assured if the platform has access to a stable, unbiased unit of accounts such as DAI. This is why DAI has earned remarkable market shares in DeFi apps in a short span of time and continues to expand its market with increased liquidity.
The growing DAI user and developer base further contribute to the network effect of the Maker protocol, improving the stability of the crypto ecosystem and increasing awareness.
Adrein Perlmann explains the significance of DAI stablecoin in the decentralized finance landscape as "The stablecoin is a key component of the DeFi movement as a transactional asset, a passive income generator, a store of value, and a conventional measure of collaterals. As more investors and traders recognize the merits of a permissionless, open system that is non-exclusive and secure, the more the crypto market capitalization is predicted to expand."
