The obsolete, single-collateral Dai – Dai that generated exclusively with Ether – turned referred to as “Sai,” whereas the brand new MCD is now acknowledged as “Dai.” CDPs for various property have been rebranded as “vaults” i.e. Ether is saved in an Ether vault, whereas Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) are saved in a BAT vault.
MakerDAO’s ecosystem development
According to Digital Assets Data, about 155,000 CDPs have been initiated on the obsolete model of the Maker communications protocol and 77% of these held underneath 0.05 ETH. Brandon Anderson, an informatics lead at Digital Assets Data, advised Cointelegraph:
“There is one address that maintains 27% of the value fastened in CDP’s. Likewise, the new Vaults system has a similar distribution, with one address holding 15% of the value fastened. As Maker continues to grow, we will see how these distributions exhaust and if there is more adoption inside the lower bins.”
Anderson added that these addresses aren’t basically a single entity:
“It is possible that one or more of those addresses could be smart contracts that contain ETH as a part of MakerDAO, and do not represent a single entity. Without a significant amount of additive research, we cannot commit to singling out/identifying these addresses.”
He terminated that, whereas there are giant gamers that without doubt direction a disproportionate amount of fastened Ether inside the ecosystem, the amount of complete fastened property has elevated over time and “these communications protocols are so open to anyone that wants to participate.”
Over 3,500 vaults have been created with the brand new system, most of which maintain over 1 ETH, in line with Digital Assets Data.
