Dai is a stablecoin based on the ERC-20 token standard that is soft-pegged to the US dollar. Instead of holding reserves of the fiat currency it is pegged to, Dai uses several cryptocurrencies to ensure it retains its value.
These include Ethereum (ETH), Basic Attention Token (BAT), USD Coin (USDC), Wrapped Bitcoin (wBTC), Compound (COMP), and many more. As these cryptocurrencies are deposited into smart contract vaults, DAI is minted.
Issued and operated by the Maker Protocol and the MakerDAO (decentralized autonomous organization), the Dai stablecoin offers users a means of lending, borrowing and earning interest from crypto assets. The cryptocurrency was launched in 2017 as a successor to single-collateralized currency SAI, and sits at the forefront of the DeFi revolution.

Frequently Asked Questions
The Dai stablecoin is a unique stablecoin maintained by the Maker platform and is collateralized by multiple cryptocurrencies ensuring that its price remains soft pegged to the US dollar. Normally, a stablecoin holds the traditional currency that it is pegged to in reserves (i.e. Tether is pegged to the U.S. dollar) on a 1:1 basis.
Unique to the Maker platform, the Maker protocol leverages Ethereum smart contracts to automate the collateralization and lending of its Dai stablecoin, as well as provide other functionalities like governance.
While the Dai stablecoin is considered to have a stable value in being soft-pegged to the US dollar, its value might deviate slightly above or below $1. To find the current market price, log into your Tap app and select DAI from the list of crypto assets.
