Maker (MKR) is now available for buying and trading commission-free*, as well as transfers on the Voyager app.
Maker (MKR) acts as a governance token and is used by its holders to vote on a variety of things. Voting is done inside Maker Protocol on a number of different topics ranging from decisions regarding fees to debt ceilings; this voting helps govern Maker Protocol, the smart contracts that power DAI.
Maker DAO is a decentralized autonomous organization on the Ethereum blockchain. The MKR token is a speculative Ethereum-based asset that backs the value of DAI, a stable price stable coin issued on Ethereum. Maker earns a continuous fee on all outstanding dai in return for governing the system and taking on the risk of bailouts. Maker’s income is funneled to MKR owners through a Buy Back program.

All investments involve risk and the past performance of a digital asset or other financial product does not guarantee future results or returns. Cryptocurrencies are highly speculative in nature, involve a high degree of risk and can rapidly and significantly decrease in value. It is reasonably possible for the value of Cryptocurrencies to decrease to zero or near zero. While diversification may help spread risk, it does not assure a profit or protect against loss. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing. Previous gains may not be representative of the experience of other customers and are not guarantees of future performance or success.
