MKR tokens are the utility and governance tokens built to support the MakerDAO and Maker Protocol. The ERC-20 token supports the operation and maintenance of the platform’s stablecoin DAI, which is soft-pegged to the US dollar. The Maker protocol is one of the first projects to provide DeFi (decentralized finance) services and remains in the top 20 biggest DeFi projects.
MKR holders are able to vote on proposals suggested to improve the Maker platform protocol as well as manage the supply of the token through surplus and debt auctions. MKR token holders play an integral role in generating DAI, how well the platform operates, and the overall price of the coin.
